    Lose Some Weight

    Pick up this book and you'll find yourself spending longer on the treadmill, missimg more meals and finding less time to vegetate in front of the TV. With his third offering, Sussman has come up with a story that is so much fun it will briefly take over your life. Tell your family it will only be temporary.

    Get ready for ancient Egyption myths, modern Middle East politics, creepy arms dealers, fanatical CIA agents and am ending deep in the Sahara that will keep you turning pages.

    Fans will enjoy Paul Sussman's solid though by the book suspense saga

    In Egypt, former CIA operative Alex Hannen commits suicide. Her estranged sister American mountain climber Freya arrives in Cairo for her funeral; but even before reaching Egypt, she has had a hard time picturing Alex killing herself. In Cairo, Freya quickly concludes that her sibling was murdered because the doctor who ruled suicide had no idea her sister could not have injected morphine into herself as Alex was down right phobic in her fears of needles. Though they had a schism Freya vows to get justice for her sibling.

    Frey becomes friends of Alex's buddy, pre-dynasty Egyptologist Flin Brodie, who is working a dig in the western desert in search of the legendary lost for almost four millennia at theOasis at the End of the World of Zerzura. As he gets closer to the find of the century, Flin and Freya are soon in deep trouble from assassins who may be working for the government.

    The third Egyptian archeological thriller (see THE LOST ARMY OF CAMBYSES and THE LAST SECRET OF THE TEMPLE) is a fast-paced action-packed thriller that keeps reader attention throughout even with some enigmatic late implausible twists. Like its two predecessors the story line has a modern day Indiana Jones like feel to it as one thing leads to another especially when Freya and Flin meet. Fans will enjoy Paul Sussman's solid though by the book suspense saga as the lead couple appear reaching their end in ironically a paradise Oasis at the End of the World.

    The Good and the Bad

    The Hidden Oasis was a good story, written well, and original, however I hold the publisher responsible for all the glaring editorial errors: misspelled words (once, even a main character's name was misspelled), grammatical errors, line breaks. This was so distracting that it was not a smooth read. How frustrating it must be for the author, and how embarrassing it should be for the publisher. I was amused to see that there were also misspelled words on the publisher's website. However, if you can get through all the editorial oversights the book is fun to read.

    I couldn't put this book down & immediately bought another of Paul Sussman's books

    I wasn't familiar with Sussman's books. I love the history, archaeology, and characters. Lots of twists and turns which mixed together to make this a great book.
