Synopsis

A journalist is murdered in Jerusalem's Armenian Cathedral and Detective Arieh Ben-Roi is spoilt for leads. But one seems out of place - an apparent link to a decades-old missing persons case in Egypt. Baffled, Ben-Roi turns for help to his old friend and sparring partner, Inspector Yusuf Khalifa of the Luxor Police.

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...

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.
