Gordon Griffin disappears . . . he narrates so well. He becomes the characters of this book, enhancing it with his timing and perfect interpretations. Archaeology meets terrorism in this richly descriptive thriller focused on Egypt. The story introduces listeners to the complex emotions that fuel the problems in the Arab world, but the politics are seamlessly incorporated into the massive sweep of the story. This is the kind of listening excitement that keeps one sitting in one’s car as the plot speeds from the London Zoo to the Great Sand Sea. Here is the greatest archaeological discovery of all time, an entire army overwhelmed by a sandstorm in 532 B.C., and everyone wants to get their hands on it. Inspector Yusuf Khalifa of the Luxor Police must do everything in his power to discover the army’s location, including going against orders, not just out of duty, but also for vital personal reasons.
