The Pharaoh's Secret
By Clive Cussler & Graham Brown
When the NUMA crew is exposed to a dangerous toxin, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala will stop at nothing to find a cure foretold by Ancient Egyptian lore in this exhilarting novel from the #1 New York Times–bestselling series
Head of NUMA special assignments, Kurt Austin and his most trusted friend, Joe Zavala tangle with a ruthless powerbroker scheming to build a new Egyptian empire as glorious as those of the Pharaohs. Part of their adversary's plan rests on the manipulation of a newly discovered aquifer beneath the Sahara, but an even more devastating weapon at his disposal may threaten the entire world: a plant extract known as the black mist, discovered in the City of the Dead and rumored to have the power to take life from the living and restore it to the dead.
With the balance of power in Africa and Europe on the verge of tipping, Kurt, Joe, and the rest of the NUMA team will have to fight to discover the truth behind the legends—but to do that, they have to confront in person the greatest legend of them all: Osiris, the ruler of the Egyptian underworld.
The Pharaoh's Secret5By Lynde Johnson "MissWorld"Clive Cussler is master story teller. I have read all his books. They seem to get better as fine wine ages, his stories have a plot within a plot. I fell in love with him because of his characters, places and the integrity he installs in them. When I relate one of his plots, I say " I go to bed with Clive and I have wonderful dreams!,,, Thank You Clive Cussler.
Pharos secret3By trying out new techI enjoyed this book, It stays in the style I enjoy from Clyve Cussler.
Total Rubbish1By barrywebbNo story line, no structure, infantile English. I gave up after two chapters. The worst book I have read.
Waste of time1By GrapeRadio.comAs others have mentioned, this incessant need to be funny throughout the book (as a replacement for storyline) was irritating. I just could not ride my way to this book.
The Pharaoh's Secret1By Peg1gySet a scene, then run, chase, run, chase. Boring. Remind me not to get his books in the future. Not enough story detail, chase, chase, chase.
Another great read5By KarinaAndersonAction packed interesting story as anyways
The Pharaohs secret1By VaughnmccI have read everything MR. Cussler has written and I will have to say this is the only book I couldn't finish. Trying to be to funny and lack of story line. I can't believe this came from Clive Cussler.
