Thanks Simon for another great book. You are one of my most favorite authors and one who can write in more than one genre.
Stephen Anderson is an insurance investigator for Worthor Corporation and he’s very good at his job, saving his company millions of dollars in claims as he solves cases involving missing items. He’s just retrieved the stolen mask of King Tut (earning a cool 5 million) and he doesn’t know it yet, but it has brought him to the attention of some dangerous characters from his past. His real past, not Stephen Anderson’s past. The life he’s built for himself starts to crumble and he needs to call on friends both past and present to save the woman who has jumpstarted his heart. It’s a dog eat dog world and Stephen has no intention of wearing Milkbone underwear.
Picking up where Mask of the Pharaoh ends, this story is action-packed from beginning to end. I had to take off one bite for believability (some of it was just way too much ~ no, I’m not saying what as that would be a potential spoiler) and that ending (not so much a cliffhanger as an obvious lead into the next book), but for the most part I enjoyed the crap out of this one. After reading two books in this series I don’t know why I’m so surprised at the intelligence and ingenuity of Anderson. He was wasted in his position in the French Foreign Legion. I’m glad his life took a vastly different turn. And if you don’t understand what I’m talking about then you seriously need to go back and read books 1 & 2 in the series. I love that favorite characters return, too.
There are several threads in this story that seemingly don’t make sense, but in the end they do. All things are connected. Like Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. Want a thriller that gives you an exhilarating ride from beginning to end? Then this is the one for you.
