Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Those seeking an absorbing thriller after The Da Vinci Code will not go far wrong with this. It hasn’t got quite the same controversial premise but there is plenty of history to absorb here, all laced around underwater exploration and deciphering ancient hieroglyphics. It is fascinating and gripping.

Comparison: Clive Cussler, Dan Brown, Valerio Massimo Manfredi.

Similar this month: None, but try Dan Fesperman or Paul Carson

If you like David Gibbins you might also like to read books by Dan Brown, Steve Berry and Valerio Massimo Manfredi.
