    Egyptologist Daniel Knox's lifelong fascination with Alexander the Great and his tomb, a fabled wonder of the ancient world, could be the death of him. After construction workers excavating in Alexandria expose a catacomb dating back to ancient times, Knox eagerly sneaks in to scout the cavernous and dusty site. Among the relics he finds clues that may solve one of the world's greatest mysteries: the last resting place of Alexander the Great.

    C. Johnson says: "Very strong start to a (hopefully) lengthy series"
    "Fast Paced Fun "Read""
    Overall

    For me its always fun to get a fast paced story while I learn something interesting - makes you want to check how much is based on historic fact. I was not disappointed. The narration is excellent. Look forward to more from this author.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Overall

    I loved this book. I found the title through a review from another book and out of curiosity decided to try it. I often rate books on how the characters stay with me long after they are over. Would I immediately pick the book up again just because I can't stop thinking about the characters? This book has staying power. It is told with heart and joy, the narration is wonderful. You may need a box of tissues in some parts and you'll laugh out loud at others. Thanks to the reviewers who sent me this way!
