Publisher's Summary

Beneath the sands of the Egyptian desert lies treasure beyond imagining. And when a professor of archeology finds clues to the location of a Pharaoh's lost tomb in ancient hieroglyphs, he hatches a plan to find the burial site - and plunder it.

But can a five-man team of smugglers and thieves uncover what the centuries have hidden? And even if they find it, can they escape with it...and with their lives?

Archeological Adventure in 1960's Egypt

It is easy to see the flashes of Chrichton brilliance in these early stories. His research into history is remarkable, the characters are believable, and often funny, and the story is tight and loaded with enough suspense to keep the reader interested. Very well done and thoroughly enjoyable. Also Christopher Lane is one of the best narrators I've had the pleasure of listening to.

Wonderful Throwback!

Loved hearing this great story! Reminded me of being a kid in the sixties and loving stories of Egypt.

Great Storyline - Very Interesting!

Love Crichton! Well worth the time.

Would have loved to listen to it with the kids, but it was too sexually suggestive (and sometimes no so suggestive). Profanity is nearly non-existent.

Fun story

Any additional comments?

I thought I'd try this early effort by Michael Crichton, writing as John Lange, and was pleasantly surprised by how it kept my interest. The characters are really fun and enjoyable. I loved the story of a group of misfits secretly excavating a undiscovered pharaoh's tomb in Egypt. The details were well done and believable. Of course, the real plus was the narrator, Christopher Lane, who always brings the characters to life. His portrayal of the wealthy, but kooky English benefactor sounded like Michael Caine which fit the character perfectly. Great twist at the end and a fun adventure throughout.

Good read

Very entertaining historical fiction and glad to have another Crichton book to read and enjoy.
