    In 523 BC, the Persian pharaoh Cambyses dispatched an army across Egypt's western desert to destroy the oracle at Siwa. Legend has it that somewhere in the middle of the Great Dune Sea his army was overwhelmed by a sandstorm and lost forever. Two and a half millennia later, a mutilated corpse is washed up on the banks of the Nile at Luxor, an antiques dealer is savagely murdered in Cairo, and a British archaeologist is found dead at the ancient necropolis of Saqqara.

    When the body of hotel owner Piet Jansen is discovered amid the ruins of an archaeological site by the Nile, it looks like a routine investigation for Inspector Yusuf Khalifa of the Luxor Police. But the more he learns about Jansen, the more he is reminded of the brutal murder, some years earlier, of an Israeli woman at Karnak for which he always suspected the wrong man was convicted.

Ben-Roi is about to become a father, and Khalifa is struggling with personal tragedies. But as they each work on their own - seemingly isolated - cases, the two investigations begin to entwine. They soon find themselves drawn into a sinister web of violence, abuse, corporate malpractice and anti-capitalist terrorism. And at the heart of the web lies the Labyrinth...

    Fjerde og sidste bog i Sussmans serie af arkæologiske krimier har ligesom forgængerne et hæsblæsende plot på tværs af adskillige kontinenter og flere tusinde år. I den armenske katedral i Jerusalem er journalisten Rivka Kleinberg blevet stranguleret med en garrotte. Kriminalinspektør Arieh Ben-Roi leder efterforskningen i felten, og han finder hurtigt ud af, at hendes reportager gennem årene har skaffet hende mange fjender på halsen. Trådene fører Ben-Roi fra Jerusalems gamle bydel til den russiske mafia, til trafficking, til multinationale selskaber og til magtfulde interesser både i Egypten og i Israel.

    Sein Leben war lang genug, das findet zumindest Raphael Ignatius Phoenix. Deshalb beschließt er, sich an seinem 100. Geburtstag das Leben zu nehmen. Vorher gilt es aber noch ein Denkmal zu hinterlassen. Sein Abschiedsbrief, den er an die Wände seines Schlossdomizils schreibt, enthält seine mal lustige, mal traurige Lebensgeschichte - und die mehr oder weniger versehentlichen begangenen Morde.
