Book Description

15 April 2010 Wilde/Chase

In Andy McDermott's brilliant new novel, Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase are on the hunt for the lost pyramid of Osiris...

The incredible secret of the Great Sphinx of Egypt is about to be revealed. An archaeological dig is preparing to open the Hall of Records, a repository of ancient knowledge hidden beneath the enigmatic statue.

But on the night of the unveiling student Macy Sharif makes a shocking discovery: a religious cult already raiding the Hall of Records to find the location of the mythical Pyramid of Osiris. Framed by corrupt officials, she goes on the run, trying to reach the only people who can save her before she is silenced - permanently.

Discredited, jobless and broke, archaeologist Nina Wilde and ex-SAS soldier Eddie Chase have problems of their own - until Macy's plea for help sends them on a deadly quest across the globe as they try to reach the mysterious pyramid before Khalid Osir, the charismatic leader of the Osirian Temple. But is the cult's motive purely greed... or something more sinister?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cult Of Osiris 5 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
Book 5 of the Nina Wilde / Eddie Chase series was released early in many parts of the country and I was delighted to find it at W H Smith in Penzance.

If you know Andy McDermotts' books then you'll be pleased to know that this is more of the same. If you don't know Andys' books then think James Bond meets John McClane meets Lara Croft meets Michael Bay meets relentless action sequences and you're half way there.

The action in this book floats between Egypt, New York, Paris and Switzerland and, again, the pace is frenetic. Car chases, gun fights, punch ups, religious cults, booby traps and lost secrets all crop up to give you a joyous escape from the 9-5.

The baddies are suitably nasty, the plot interesting and the action will have you turning the pages like there's no tomorrow.

*****************Potential spoiler alert******************

However, during my reading of this book I was constantly thinking that Nina and Eddie are always "safe" and maybe that weakens some of the tension? Authors such as Vince Flynn, Matthew Reilly and James Twining have killed off recurring characters in their respective series of books and this has not diminished their sales / stories. Maybe it's time for Andy to do the same to keep things fresh?

I'm aware that these books are about Nina and Eddie but to add to character development how would one cope without the other? Just a thought.

Bottom line: Andy once again creates an exciting, interesting and enjoyable read. Popcorn entertainment at its best and I look forward to the next one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good fun but suspend reality 12 Aug 2010
By MrsMe
Format:Paperback
This is a good book in that it's fast-paced and the history bits provide a bit of extra interest, but think of it much like a James Bond film - leave reality at the door! Quite how many explosions/gunfights/spinning helicopters two people can get into and out of without a scratch and without being arrested is something you just have to skim over. A good holiday read, but not sure I'll be buying any more of the series as I imagine they'll be exactly the same just in a different location/chasing a different mythical 'prize'.

5.0 out of 5 stars STUNNING 18 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well I admit I had never heard of McDermott, a friend gave me a book to read and I have been hooked ever since.I like the way he centres his books around Nina and Eddie it kind of makes you more part of it a bit like knowing them. He keeps you entertained with the thrills and often humor spills of Eddie. That guy surely can not find insurance cover. Have a read it is a fun book another that keeps you hanging on every turn of the page.
