Having just finished this book I am a bit bewildered as to how to rate this book.
Should I focus on
-the fact that all the characters are one-dimentional, with only a slight touch of normal human feelings and reactions. E.g. they keep on cracking jokes no matter how dire situation they are in.
-the author having borrowed elements from several other books and movies within the adventure genre.
-the plot bei ...more
Where is ancient Egypt’s last secret chamber, and what is concealed within? It’s all in the sand!
When an archaeologist is murdered in his Cairo apartment, an ancient artifact is stolen from his safe – one believed to hold the clue to the last secret chamber. When Joey Peruggia discovers that the dead man was his long-lost uncle, he travels with his girlfriend, Marie, and his friend Boyce, who works for the Fr ...more
The story continues smoothly, with no plot holes, and explains enough to the reader so as to understand the importance of the findings and the history behind them. The puzzles are extremely well built and well thought. This book, wisely, includes pictures that catch the reader’s attention and helps us built a clearer men ...more
I love all the attention to detail with regards Tutankhamen's historic discovery and what happened to Queen Nefertiti. We saw the exhibition of Tutankhamen's discovery and riches when it was in South Africa on show a w ...more
Once again, the research that has gone in to constructing this novel is phenomenal. Philips’ ...more
It was an educative read with alot of information.
The book opens with a man held hostage by his partner, the partner is greedy and impatient, he wants more and can't wait to convince Benjamin.
Benjamin, his girlfriend and Boyce are brought in to the scene. They travel to meet Youssef and the book unravels.... the Great Pyramid, treasures, artifacts, scrolls you name it.. the while nine yards of an Egyptian 'mummy' kinda thing ...more
Oh, I wanted to like this. I hoped that Joey would have grown up since the events of book one, would've treated Marie better. I mean he's not horrible towards her but there's a scene where he and Boyce poke fun at her appetite and it clearly bothers her and that's just not cool in my opinion! Also, I feel like this was just the same as book one, just a different antagonist and historical point of view. T ...more
I love the mystery, romance, drama, and I love the ancient Egypt history. This book will take you back in time and keep you guessing till the end of the book.
I really do love this book and I do recommend this book to anyone who love history/mystery/drama.
When Joey's uncle is killed, another journey of the three friends begins. Who killed Uncle Ben? What will they find at the Cairo Museum? Will they escape to see another day? Just when one problem is resolved, another takes it place.
This was a fascinating story. Fast paced, just like the Mona Lisa book. Keeps you going. Joey, Marie, & Boyce head to Egypt to meet Joey’s uncle. It gets a little crazy after that. Indiana Jones kind of crazy. Looking forward to the next adventure
Joey Perrugia travels to Egypt with his girlfriend, art connoisseur Marie and pal Boyce, following the murder of his Uncle Terry and the 'inheritance' of Terry's quest for the Last Secret Chamber, that supposedly reveals the whereabouts of a fabulous hidden treasure.
When Marie is kidnapped and held hostage for information and assistance in locating the treasure, Joey's in turmoil.
Can he find the vital clue and recover the treasure, or has he lo ...more
The story is fast paced and interesting, my only issue with it was it seems like Boyce is too young and only partially trained for his job with a foreign intelligence service and Joey also seems rather unprepared for the adventure. When the three arrived at Stonehenge they should have been half dead, needing a hospital, not able to travel to Cairo but other than each character taking turns being terrified but able to joke and fool around, it was an enjoyable read ...more
This story is well written, but kind of crosses the line to SciFi at the end. It is entertaining and the characters are well developed. The bad guys were truly villians with good triumphing in the end. There is room for a sequel, which surely would be all SCI-if.
books. The story line does make you think that maybe there is another whole new world hidden away just waiting to be discovered.
