Product Description

Review

"A storyteller who really knows what he's writing about... reading The Hidden Oasis is a totally immersive experience: the richness of the world he creates and the authenticity of the characters who populate it draw you in mercilessly and, before you know it, you're in the grip of his meticulously constructed plot and living a parallel life through its pages...The Hidden Oasis is a rip-roaring gem of a read - you are in for a real treat!" (Raymond Khoury, author of The Last Templar)

"A compelling, high-octane adventure novel that seamlessly meshes past and present to bring vividly to life one of the most enduring mysteries of ancient Egypt. The author's extensive knowledge of Egyptian pre-history is effortlessly woven into a fast and furious tale studded with thrilling chases, characters who are rarely what they seem, implacably evil villains and a delightful heroine. Deception, deceit and lies abound and the plot twists and turns to keep the reader guessing, all the way to the awesome climax." (James Becker, author of The First Apostle & The Moses Stone)

"Another winner from Paul Sussman - hands down one of the best writers of international suspense in the business. Told with authority and style, excitement melds with adventure - you can feel the scorching desert heat and the chapping, acrid winds. The Hidden Oasis offers bone chilling thrills, a flair for the macabre and off-the-charts suspense. Superb." (Steve Berry, author of The Templar Legacy, The Romanov Prophecy and The Charlemagne Pursuit)

"Believable characters, fascinating history and an evocative sense of place - especially Cairo and the dry heat of the Sahara. There's nothing dry about the visceral violence and thrilling action scenes, however, and best of all is the terrifying secret at the heart of the story - The Hidden Oasis itself." (Michael Cordy, author of The Messiah Code)

"The Hidden Oasis evokes a lost world of primordial myth that men have sought since the very dawn of history... amidst non-stop action - and literal cliffhangers - Paul Sussman again convinces us that there is nothing boring about the lost worlds of archaeology" (KATHERINE NEVILLE, author of The Eight)

Book Description

The thrilling new archaeological adventure from the bestselling author of The Last Secret of the Temple.

From the Back Cover

Egypt 2153 BC

Eighty priests set out under cover of darkness into the western desert, taking with them a mysterious object swathed in cloth. Four weeks later, having reached their destination, they calmly slit each other's throats...

Albania, 1986

A plane takes off from a remote airfield, bound for the Sudan. On board a cargo that will forever change the Middle East. Somewhere over the Sahara the plane disappears...

The western desert, the present day

A group of Bedouin discover a mummified corpse half-buried in the dunes. With it are a roll of camera film and a miniature clay obelisk inscribed with a curious hieroglyphic sign...

Three unconnected events

Or so it seems until Freya Hannen arrives in Egypt for the funeral of her sister, a desert explorer who has inexplicably taken her own life.

For Freya it is the start of a terrifying, life-or-death adventure - one that will lead her and Egyptologist Flin Brodie deep into the forbidding wastes of the Sahara. Their goal: one of archaeology's greatest mysteries and the astonishing secret at its heart...
