Buy the book


At a mausoleum in Cairo’s most notorious cemetery, a mercenary receives a package containing a silver test tube suspended in hydraulic stasis.

An investigative reporter tracking rogue biomedical companies is terrified by the appearance of a mummified man outside her Manhattan apartment.

A Bulgarian scientist who dabbles in the occult makes a startling discovery in his underground laboratory.

These seemingly separate events collide when Dominic Grey and Viktor Radek, private investigators of cults, are hired by the CEO of an Egyptian biomedical firm to locate stolen research integral to the company’s new life extension product. However, after witnessing the slaughter of a team of scientists by the remnants of a dangerous cult thought long abandoned, Grey and Viktor turn from pursuers to pursued.

From the gleaming corridors of visionary laboratories to the cobblestone alleys of Eastern Europe to a lost oasis in the Sahara, Grey and Viktor must sift through science and myth to uncover the truth behind the Egyptian and his sinister biotech – before that truth kills them.

My thoughts:

I really enjoyed the first book in the Dominic Grey series and the next sure didn't disappoint!

Everything I loved about 'The Summoner' like the depth to the characters, the intense and exciting plot and the mystery - 'The Egyptian' still had elements of all of these things.

It's definitely one of those reads that keep you on the edge of your seat with how gripping it can be at times - it gave me the chills. Everything about the story line just caught my attention and kept it there.

I definitely recommend this whole series to readers who love mystery that makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck just from the writing style used itself.

Layton Green:

What's more is that 'The Egyptian' is only $0.99 for this release weekend!
