Publisher's Summary

On the trail of the lost Dead Sea Scrolls, archaeologist Daniel Knox stumbles upon a theft in progress at an ancient temple near Alexandria. Then a senior Egyptian archaeologist is violently killed, and the finger of suspicion points at Knox himself. To add to his mounting worries, his partner Gaille Bonnard is kidnapped while showing a television crew around the ruins of Amarna. She manages to smuggle out a message, pleading with Knox to rescue her, but he's locked in a police cell on suspicion of murder hundreds of miles away. His only hope of clearing his name and saving Gaille is to crack one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the ancient world...before it's too late.

action packed foray into speculative archeology

This book is full of action, enough speculative archeology and history to make one want to read more about some of the topics covered. This story is better than the first book with the same characters. the narrator is excellent, and somehow manages to find different voices and accents for all of the characters. enjoyable.

Fast paced excitement - well written, well read

Will Adams followed up with this sequel in great fashion. The story is fast, enjoys a lot of historic narative in the same vein as the first story, captures the conflict of cultures existing between east and west and provides a great ensamble (sp?) of characters and the narration is as good as it gets - probably earns the story an extra star. There are a few dings, the story is a good bash at Christian history, one of the key bad guys just drops off the radar and then, from a story point of view evaporates, but these things can be taken in and do not crush the story as a whole. If you like a tight thriller, fast paced action and solid dialog all taking place in an exotic local then I would highly recommend Exodous Quest.
