Publisher's Summary

The stunning new adventure thriller from the real life Indiana Jones and best-selling author of Atlantis.

It is 1351 BC: Akhenaten the Sun-Pharaoh rules supreme in Egypt... until the day he casts off his crown and mysteriously disappears into the desert, his legacy seemingly swallowed up by the remote sands beneath the Great Pyramids of Giza.

AD 1884: A British soldier serving in the Sudan stumbles upon an incredible discovery - a submerged temple containing evidence of a terrifying religion whose god was fed by human sacrifice. The soldier is on a mission to reach General Gordon before Khartoum falls. But he hides a secret of his own.

Present day: Jack Howard and his team are excavating one of the most amazing underwater sites they have ever encountered, but dark forces are watching to see what they will find. Diving into the Nile, they enter a world 3,000 years back in history, inhabited by a people who have sworn to guard the greatest secret of all time....

Not a Jack Howard story

This book may be part of the Jack Howard series but the reality is that more than 75% of the story takes place in flashbacks to the 1880s, following the actions, conversations and plots of British military men during the war in Sudan. Jack Howard and the IMU crew are minor charcters and their fragmented appearances never manage to form a coherent or engaging storyline.

The narrator isn’t much help with his odd and overdone voices that do not even match his own earlier narration of the previous Jack Howard novels.

All in all, this book is extremely difficult to get into, highly fragmented and a bit too fantastic in the myriad of lucky breaks the author included to try to make this story come together.

It’s a fail, and a disappointment compared to other books in the series.
