Undercover agent Omar Zagouri has been ordered to Giza. A prominent Egyptologist was murdered, and a priceless artifact—the only complete version of the Book of the Dead—is missing. Omar is still reeling from the recent disappearance of his girlfriend, Mia Golding, but he puts his quest to find her on hold to track down the lost piece of history.
Omar’s mission is not just to locate the sacred book; he must also rescue the two archaeologists kidnapped and forced to translate its hieroglyphics under threat of death. Their kidnapper is determined to discover the text’s rumored explosive revelation: that Moses did not receive the Ten Commandments from God but instead copied them from the Egyptians. Though Omar’s need to find Mia grows more urgent, he must focus on finding the enemy who will stop at nothing to ignite a controversy that will change history, and the world, forever.
Another exciting and not-able-to-put-down-book by H. B. Moore. Her characters are flawlessly written and the plot is page-turning. I enjoyed the switch from Omar to Hatshe. At times the switch would allow me to catch my breath, if only for a moment. There is heart pounding action and romance as well. It was hard to say what I liked best in the book. I know I loved the characters, but if I were to choose a favorite if would be Hatshepsut. Her strong personality and determination leapt off the page. As much as I loved the scenes with Omar, and all the action and excitement going on with him, I looked forward to reading more from Hatshe. Heather has a talent and is a very gifted author. The reader will appreciate all the research and care she put into writing this book. All of the characters and scenes are written well. This story reads fast and is very action packed too. Omar is a great character too, and I enjoyed his sense of humor.
5 out of 5 stars.
