4.0 out of 5 stars Dark, 6 July 2007
This review is from: Without Remorse (Paperback)
Well written and quite believable book. I found it very dark with Tom Clancy giving Kelly a really rough time of it. Very atmospheric throughout but with a somewhat convenient ending. Dark and grooding. I was glad I read it but glad when I had finished it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Troubling, 6 July 2007
Starts off nicely as a adult adventure; girl mad gentlemen with fine moustaches seeking to seduce the Consular's daughter, battle scenes and camel trecks accross the desert by dashing heros. Each day takes big chunks of the book so you feel fully immersed in the environemnt and time.
But the last third of the book covers about 30 years and rushes along like the writter had spent his time preparing for the book and didn't want his effort to go to waste - so he lobbed it in. I don't want to spoil it for others but I found the end of the book troubling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rip-roaring adventure !, 6 July 2007
My favourate book of 2006 (and I read a lot) a great adult adventure, with a bit of everything in it. A sort of Da Vinci Code with Egyptian treasure. Read it !

5.0 out of 5 stars Great !, 6 July 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is written in the first person which is a bit odd at first but I settled into it quite quickly. Taita the Slave who is the narrator grows on you from driving you mad with his being an expert in everything to amusement that he just a big head. Wilbur's books are always a masala of love, brutal violance, action and careful plotting. The battle scenes are particularly well done. If you like adventure or Egypt you should love this!

1.0 out of 5 stars Did it for the money, 6 July 2007
I have read several of Wilbur's books and enjoyed them all - except this one. Total rubbish, boring, all the characters are experts, beautiful and perfect at everything. A monotonous linear book, how did I ever finish it? Avoid.
