    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"

    Story

    Yes, I enjoyed the story and thought David Colacci did a good job of bringing Daniel Knox and the supporting cast to life. I thought hte premise was really neat. Finding Alexander's Tomb and the history behind it was well done and I thought the descriptions were good, but there were some plot lines that didn't get fully fleshed out. One man's daughter has a plot line that doesn't get resolved. I do enjoy the fact that there is no supernatural elements brought in. It makes the story more believeable in this setting. I enjoy fantasy, but this story didn't require it and it was made better for it. I thought it was a little weak with some of the other characters who were chasing Knox and some of Knox's allies didn't seem all that real. Some of it was a little too convienent. But like a summer movie, I had fun and want to hear the next chapter in the Daniel Knox saga, even though this adventure didn't WOW me, it was still fun. It also helps, that I like Egyptian Lore and the idea of treasure hunting and archeology along the lines of Indiana Jones, Nathan Drake, Dirk Pitt etc.
