I can't believe I've never read anything by this author before. This is something I will correct immediately! The characters and story held me from beginning to end. Searching for ancient Egyptian whatevers, while the bad guys are chasing you...very exciting...great settings...terrific plot twists! I love the way the author managed to put himself into the story!

"Life threatening dangers loom around every turn, leaving the reader breathless...an incredibly exciting and satisfying read." Chattanooga Free Press
"Intoxicating...A heady mix of exotic adventure, romance, and egyptology. Smith is a master."-Publisher's Weekly
As always, Wilbur Smith fascinates. Very exciting, highly detailed novel that reads like fact rather than fiction. Adventure, romance, humor, betrayal - it's all in here, wrapped up in historical fact and historical "might have been". Hugely entertaining, "can't put it down" read.
Sequel to River God. Excellent story. Story moves from ancient Egypt to modern times, back and forth many times. There is a secret in the story telling which is revealed almost at the end of the book. It makes for a very enjoyable read.
Excellent book and hard to put down....please don't miss this one!
