Publisher's Summary

She glanced down at the drawer in which she kept all her floppy disks. That and all the other drawers had been pulled out and thrown on the floor. They were empty, of course; along with the disks, all her notebooks and photographs were missing. Her last connections with the seventh scroll were lost. After three years of work, gone was the proof it had ever existed.  

A hunt for treasure. A battle to stay alive.   

When Royan Al Simma is the victim of a vicious attack that leaves her husband dead, her only thought is that she must continue their joint work: to use the secrets of the seventh scroll to find the hidden tomb of Pharaoh Mamose and its untold trove of lost Egyptian riches. To do so, she must bury her grief and partner with the eccentric aristocrat Nicholas Quenton-Harper, a man who shares her passion for the ancient world.  

But the men who killed her husband are not yet finished. As Royan and Nicholas draw closer to the Pharaoh's tomb, enemies are gathering - people who will stop at nothing to ensure the scroll's promised treasures are kept from Roman's hands....

Found it hard to stop listening

I read the book years ago and at that time I considered it the best book I had ever read. Now, with audible it was so much better that I am re-looking at all of the other Wilbur Smith books again.

Average adventure thriller

Almost struggled to get through this. Wilbur Smith's first Egypt book, River God, was excellent, this loosely linked follow-up, a modern day based story of a couple searching around Ethiopia for a tomb is not on the same level. The lead male and female characters are fairly dull being too nice and perfect through most of the story, the male lead seems to be expert in whatever tasks arise, and generally a bit smug. The dialogue between the characters is often pretty corny as well. Found the story improved somewhat in the second half when the villain fully comes into the story. Decidely average Wilbur Smith though - have read various other novels by the author that are better than this.

The narration was very good, good voice characterisation, did take a couple of chapters to get used to, but think that's normal when changing books, but fine after a short time listening.

Great Story

Gripping story line, spoiled (only slightly) by sycophantic references to the author, which I found a bit tacky!

Apart from that, a great tale!
