About the Author

Journalist and novelist Paul Sussman read history at Cambridge, where he was also a Boxing Blue. From an early age his abiding passion was archaeology and he worked in the field, in particular in Egypt where he was part of the first team to excavate new ground in the Valley of the Kings since the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922. He brought this interest and enthusiasm to his first three novels The Lost Army of Cambyses, The Last Secret of the Temple and The Hidden Oasis which have now been translated into over 30 languages and have sold over two million copies, while Paul s journalism appeared across the media, including in the Big Issue, Independent, Guardian, Evening Standard and on CNN.com. He died suddenly in May 2012, having just finished work on this, his fourth novel. He was just 45. He is survived by his wife, a television producer, and their two young sons.

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 *

A grisly murder in Jerusalem lights the fuse of Sussman's powder-keg third thriller featuring Egyptian police detective Yusuf Ezz el-Din Khalifa (after 2005's The Last Secret of the Temple), who's reunited with his friend and Jerusalem counterpart, Arieh Ben-Roi. When investigative journalist Rivka Kleinberg is found garroted in an Armenian cathedral in Jerusalem, Ben-Roi follows up on the leads of Kleinberg's last story to find disparate clues involving a powerful American mining corporation, an anticapitalist vigilante group calling itself "The Nemesis Agenda," and a mining engineer's disappearance in Egypt more than 80 years earlier. These "threads and connections, a whole spider's web's worth," only twist, however, into even more byzantine intrigues embracing both Egypt's ancient archeological treasures and modern-day religious clashes. Sussman dexterously weaves the many subplots into a taut skein, never losing sight of his characters' humanity and troubled lives. Readers who enjoyed his previous cross-cultural thrillers will find much here to like. Agent: Laura Susjin, the Susjin Agency. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
