Description

A chilling new world order is upon us . . . In the shifting desert sands of Egypt, rumours abound of a lost papyrus that will reveal the true purpose of the Pyramids of Giza. Could these ancient monoliths be the source of a new kind of energy, one that comes at no cost to the planet? CIA agent Curtis O'Connor and archaeologist Aleta Weizman are determined to find out. Close by, a shadowy and powerful group known as Pharos meets in Alexandria, its membership a closely guarded secret. Its first order of business- to orchestrate chaos on international financial markets with a series of spectacular terrorist attacks on the world's fossil-fuel supplies. And in Cairo, amid the anarchy of Tahrir Square, thieves have broken into the famed Museum of Antiquities and stolen one of the world's priceless artifacts- the mask of Tutankhamun. Is the audacious theft linked to the Pharos Group? Nimbly weaving politics, history and science through a rip-roaring plot, from Afghanistan to Washington, Sydney to London, The Alexandria Connection is a spectacular and stylish ride. Praise for Adrian d'Hage's Novels 'A provocative book in which every sort of dogma is questioned and every preconceived idea turned on its head.' Sunday Mail 'A fast-paced and thrilling read.'
