A journalist is murdered in Jerusalem's Armenian Cathedral and Detective Arieh Ben-Roi is spoilt for leads.

Baffled, Ben-Roi turns for help to his old friend and sparring partner, Inspector Yusuf Khalifa of the Luxor Police.

Synopsis

The Labyrinth of Osiris by Paul Sussman

Although struggling with personal tragedy and immersed in a case of his own - mysterious well poisonings in the Eastern Desert - Khalifa agrees to do some digging. What he discovers will change both men's lives for ever. As their investigations intertwine, the detectives are drawn ever deeper into a sinister web of violence, abuse, corporate malpractice and international terrorism. And at its heart lies a three thousand year-old mystery that has already taken two lives, and will soon be claiming more.

Reviews

'Paul Sussman's final novel is as thrilling an archaeological adventure as you're likely to read: wildly exciting, brutal, expertly informed and utterly unputdownable.' -- Simon Sebag-Montefiore

'Sussman knew how to keep a complex plot bowling along while constantly ratcheting up the tension...this is top-drawer popular fiction and is sure to become an even bigger bestseller than his three other novels.' -- John Preston MAIL ON SUNDAY

'An absolutely top-notch thriller - captivating, intelligent and notably well-written, with a depth of characterisation most thrillers don't usually even attempt... his plotting is terrific...Sussman's thrillers have been translated into 33 languages and have sold over 2 million copies worldwide. This, his final book, deserves to be even more successful.' -- Harry Ritchie DAILY MAIL

'A genuinely exciting read from a world-class storyteller.a beautifully-observed thriller -- Christopher Fowler' FINANCIAL TIMES

'Stylish writing and deep research.' GUARDIAN
