The City of the Dead, Egypt, 1353 BC

Buried deep beneath the Sahara desert is a secret - an ancient elixir so powerful that it is rumoured to take life from the living and restore it to the dead.

Lampedusa, present day

Off a remote island, a mysterious ship releases a deadly poison. Minutes later everyone on the island is dead. Responding to a distress call, Kurt Austin and the NUMA team struggle to understand what has caused this disaster. As they investigate the incident further, they uncover a far greater threat.

What is the truth behind the legends?

Now Kurt Austin must learn the secrets of the past if he is to save millions from horrifying deaths. But it is a desperate race against time. And he faces a deadly enemy who will stop at nothing....

Kurt Austin and Egypt

As I get older I treat these like boys own stories , macho heroes and an impossibly survived storyline.
Great way to pass away hours while recovering from illness.

Another Great from Clive and Graham

One of the few books I have listened to recently that I just had to keep listening no matter where I went. Gripping and adventurous with a few funny moments. I love the characters and the
adventures they go through. Thanks for another great story.

Slam Dunk

Listened to this whilst on holiday as watching the kids around the pol and reading a Cussler book isn't really an option! Scott Brick delivered another superb performance backed up with Cussler's awesome ability to spin a superb yarn based on current (sic) Middle Eastern sentiment. I thorough enjoyed it especially the attention to detail. And nine of the kids drowned! Not mine anyway.
