I chose this author because my library system stated his stories/style were similar to Clive Cussler's. While Mr. Adams' characters are well developed through this story, and the historical and geographical research is quite impressive, Will has more road to travel before he can be accurately compared to Clive Cussler.
That said, the story was VERY enjoyable. The plot and characters were believable and the conclusion pulled all of the loose ends together quite nicely.
David Colacci's narration was stellar! He made the story come alive through his mastery of dialects, making each character's dialog sound unique and genuine.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical fiction, strong storylines, and superb narration.

As an amature Ptolemaic archaelogist, I'm a sucker for this kind of book. Along with the Holy
Grail and Ark of the Covenant, Alexander's tomb is one the great lost treasures of the past. The Alexander Cipher although lightweight, is fast paced, well-written and from an historical and archealogical standpoint is pretty much dead on. The author knows ancient and modern Egypt as well, and he uses his knowledge of the country to serve up some unexpected twists. It's a fun way to fill up twelve hours or so, and you pick up some interesting information as well.
