5.0 out of 5 stars One of Egypt's Unsolved Mysteries Brought to Life, 7 Aug. 2014
It is always an exciting time for me when I find a new author who writes about the subjects I am interested in. This is Paul Sussman's first novel and he certainly seems to have the magical gift of storytelling. The book is based around a well documented event in early history. In 523 BC the Persian Emperor Cambyses sent an army across Egypt's desert to destroy an oracle at Amun. Somewhere in the deserts the army of 50,000 men were destroyed by a sandstorm.

The book is set in modern times and there is much murder and mystery involved. Inspector Yusuf Khalifa of the Luxor police is brought in to solve the crimes, but even he is amazed by the sting in the tail that this book has in store for the reader.

This really is a gripping book, one of the best I have read this year, and I commend it to you.

This review was first written shortly after the book was published in 2002, since then the author has added a number of books to his name, including The Last Secret Of The Temple, 2005, and The Hidden Oasis, 2008
