A Great Story,
This review is from: The Last Secret of the Temple (Paperback)
Having read Lost Army of Cambyses I was looking forward to revisiting Eqypt with Inspector Khalifa and I was ready for another good thriller with a bit of ancient history thrown in. I wasn't disappointed and the extra flavour of the arab/israeli conflict made the plot that much more interesting.
For my part I think the author got the balance between fictitious plot and modern day politics spot on. The book never seemed too 'heavy' and I even shed a little tear at the end. The characters are believable, the plot keeps you guessing and I felt I had learned a little about the conflicts by the end of the book.
This guy knows how to tell a good story.
