Book Description

Two thousand years ago in Egypt's exotic city of Alexandria, the single most revered treasure of the Mediterranean would inexplicably disappear from the pages of history. Believed irretrievably lost to all but legend, few dared dream the possibility that it might still exist . . .
Until now! Guided by the discovery of an ancient artefact, a determined professor of archaeology and a beautiful New England heiress join forces in the quest of a lifetime. Overcoming treachery and deadly obstacles, they follow an ever-murderous trail that eventually leads them to a barren, desert valley containing a stunning secret -- one the modern world may not yet be prepared to accept.

*1st Adventure of Professor David Manning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Archeological mystery 7 Jan. 2012
By Mole
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The tomb of Alexander the Great was renowned and respected throughout the ancient world and details of it appear in numerous writings from the period; but in the 4th century, it suddenly vanished without trace. This book is a mystery thriller using the discovery of the tomb in modern times as a central theme.

The story itself is very well written; although I did see a few typos that detract from it slightly. The characters are perhaps a little stereo typical, but they develop well throughout the plot. The action is quite fast paced, and moves rapidly between various locations, but I didn't find it at all confusing.

I have visited some of the areas within the story, and it brought back some great memories. That part of the world is quite astonishing, and I would love to go back again one day; I can readily understand just what drives many of those that devote their lives to uncovering the historical sites and understanding just where we come from.

It's a really good story, and one that would make a good addition to most Kindle collections.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent archeological thriller 22 Dec. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Highly recommended. A sixty year old murder solved. Mystery of a missing tomb and two groups racing to be the first to reach it. Twist at the end was unexpected :~) A few typos and aberrant apostrophes but didn't detract from the story.

THE AMUN CHAMBER Daniel Leston (Kindle Edition)

I do not believe that this book was ever released commercially in the UK, a pity because it is a really first class tale in the archaeological mystery genre and the first adventure of his main protagonist Professor David Manning.

It is a true mystery of history that the tomb of Alexander the Great did inexplicably disappear about 2000 years ago and it is the search for that ancient artefact that is the core the story.

The tale is very well written; the characters and the plot believable and the novel is a roller coaster of action from beginning to end with villains and murders in abundance. The descriptive narratives of modern Egypt are excellent and the reader genuinely feels the atmosphere of the cities and deserts.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will keep it on my Kindle `bookshelf' to revisit at a later date.

I believe that this was Mr. Leston's debut novel and look forward to reading his second David Manning adventure `The Genghis Tomb' in the next few days.

The Kindle edition: There are quite a few mis-spellings and typos but nothing that seriously detracts from the story but it would be well worth the effort of having the editor revisit the text. Formatting issues are the only thing reducing my score to 4/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book, intriguing plot and keeps you hooked 4 Mar. 2012
By phil
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great novel that had me hooked in the first ten pages and didnt let me go until the very end. I have read a number of fiction books around these kind of topics and it has been one of the best reads I have had. Involving, mixing history with characters you can become interested in.

Definately worth the read, recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars The Amun Chamber 11 Jan. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Amun Chamber was everything I was hoping for: adventure and archaeology in Egypt.

I'll admit that I didn't noticed the typos that other reviewers have mentioned, but I was reading it too quickly to make sure everything turned out OK in the end! (It does!)

In structure, the book is very similar to Dan Brown's books: an American professor with a problem in a different country, a pretty girl linked to the problem who he meets early on in the book and then ends up dating, a secret cult, lots of death, a psychopath hunting them, betrayal and near death experiences for all involved. If the plot hadn't been quite so predictable it would have probably been given the final star.

But, it's a good read that I would definitely recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amun Chamber 24 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good detailed story, slow starter but has you hooked come the end. No real surprises though and would have benefited from a more detailed description of the locations and surroundings to bring it more alive to the reader.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Amun Chamber 8 Sept. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There seems, in the wake of the Indiana Jones movies, to have arisen a genre of novels casting archaeologists as hero figures embarking on quests to find one holy grail or other. An excuse is found to have him accompanied by an attractive female companion. Their progress is shadowed by nefarious characters intent on stealing anything of value that they find. Historical flasbacks show how the treasure was hidden and the precautions taken, often involving a secret lineage of guardiens stretching back for millenia. Need I say more? Except that this book is well written, pacy and fun to read! The formula may be hackneyed, but at least it is well executed.
