1351 BC, 1884 AD and now; a cleverly linked action tale across the three ages. It brings out the excitement of search and discovery. The frustration and dangers of conflict in the desert and the impact the various characters had on each other. The bulk of the book concentrates on the 19th century and a soldier-cum-secret agent’s attempt to rescue General Gordon. In the present it is Jack Howard’s seventh adventure. He is quite a character.

If you like David Gibbins you might also like to read books by Clive Cussler, Matthew Reilly and Dan Brown.

Synopsis

Pharaoh by David Gibbins

Fans of Dan Brown and Clive Cussler will love the thrilling new Jack Howard action adventure from Sunday Times bestseller David Gibbins. 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 three thousand years back in history, inhabited by a people who have sworn to guard the greatest secret of all time...
