Beneath the sands of the Egyptian desert lies treasure beyond imagining. And when a professor of archaeology finds clues to the location of a Pharaoh's lost tomb in ancient hieroglyphs, he hatches a plan to find the burial site - and plunder it.
But can a five-man team of smugglers and thieves uncover what the centuries have hidden? And even if they find it, can they escape with it...and with their lives?
Long before he wrote Jurassic Park, before he scripted blockbuster movies like Twister, before he created the groundbreaking TV series ER, Michael Crichton was an honors student at Harvard Medical School - and writing paperback suspense novels on the side, under the top-secret pen name "John Lange." Lange wrote eight books between 1966 and 1972...and then vanished.
Until, 40 years after John Lange was born, Michael Crichton chose Hard Case Crime to bring him back, personally re-editing two Lange books, even writing new chapters for one of them. Now Hard Case Crime is proud to bring all of John Lange's work back into print for the first time in decades - and the first time ever under Michael Crichton's real name.
"I look forward to dipping into all the early Crichton reissues, which are highly intriguing and made all the more special by the typical care with which Hard Case and Titan have handled them." - ChiZine
"This is a great adventure book, with plenty of colorful characters, but most importantly to me, it really shows how GOOD pulp should be." - Trash Mutant
“Many stunning women are inserted throughout the story for interesting flavor. I would definitely recommend this Hard Case Crime novel to any reader who has a vivid imagination and a long, free afternoon to decipher and guess plot twists along the way.” – Night Owl Reviews
"Great delight to Crichton fans who are still mourning his 2008 passing." Geek Girl Project
