Publisher's Summary

Undercover agent Omar Zagouri has been ordered to Giza. A prominent Egyptologist was murdered, and a priceless artifact - the only complete version of the Book of the Dead - is missing. Omar is still reeling from the recent disappearance of his girlfriend, Mia Golding, but he puts his quest to find her on hold to track down the lost piece of history.

Omar's mission is not just to locate the sacred book; he must also rescue the two archaeologists kidnapped and forced to translate its hieroglyphics under threat of death. Their kidnapper is determined to discover the text's rumored explosive revelation: that Moses did not receive the 10 Commandments from God but instead copied them from the Egyptians. Though Omar's need to find Mia grows more urgent, he must focus on finding the enemy who will stop at nothing to ignite a controversy that will change history, and the world, forever.

Fantastic book

I really enjoyed listening to this book. It's the second in a series and I am very glad to have found it.
I enjoyed it so much that I listened to the complete book in one day. The story was very good and the timeline in to the history was brilliant. The voice of the narrator deserves a big compliment because you completely forget that it's just the one person doing all the voices. Looking forward to the next book.

Boring and Meandering

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, it just lost me with all of its meandering back and forth between Ancient Egypt and modern Cairo and Tel Aviv. I didn't finish it.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Better editing. The story didn't seem very cohesive and I found it boring. The characters are very flat and need to be better developed. Perhaps they were in the first novel?

What three words best describe Bon Shaw’s performance?

He has a nice voice and can do accents well, but the performance seems more like reading and not a performance and was rather stilted.

Was Lost King worth the listening time?

No, I will return it.

Any additional comments?

This is the first book I've listened to by this author and I'm not impressed. The story was somewhat "hurky-jurky" and just didn't keep my interest.
