Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of The Lost Army of Cambyses, the new Inspector Khalifa thriller.When the body of hotel owner Piet Jansen is discovered amid the ruins of an archaeological site by the Nile, it looks like a routine investigation for Inspector Yusuf Khalifa of the Luxor Police. But the more he learns about Jansen, the more he is reminded of the brutal murder, some years earlier, of an Israeli woman at Karnak for which he always suspected the wrong man was convicted. Ignoring the objections of his superiors, Khalifa re-opens the case, but to do so, he finds he's obliged to team up with a bigoted, hard-drinking Israeli detective.

wonderful book

I was a little afraid that with 20+ hours of listening I would find this book boring. But I loved every minute of it. The characters are lively and well drawn and you just have to keep listening to the unfolding of the story. Sussman manages to write not only an intelligent and suspenseful thriller but gives you something to think about long after the end of the book

First Rate

I thought I was in store for another Da Vinci Code clone but I was completely wrong. This is a superbly written, fast paced novel with well drawn characters and a terrific mystery(ies). Further adding to the depth of this novel is its setting in a richly crafted milieu of modern Middle East tensions. The story has several twists that are unexpected (and not the least bit contrived) and like all truly great mysteries, the clues were there for the reader all along. At the unexpected and very satisfying ending, I immediately went looking for more by Mr. Sussman.
Gordon Griffin is a superb performer in the pantheon of Barbara Rosenblatt and only a handful of others. He brings the characters to life and adds quality to an already first rate story.
