    Manfredi is a great historical fiction author. My favorite Manfredi book is "The Last Legion", but "Pharaoh" is a close second. I regret that Manfredi's books are often hard to find in the US as evidenced by this book that was first published in 1998 - ten years before it was available in the US. Central to the plot is a large scale terrorist attack on the US written three years before this actually happened. Also central to the plot is the discovery of a treasure tomb of an important Biblical historical figure written five years before the now famous Da Vinci Code was published. This book could have started the genre that the Da Vinci Code seemed to spawn - a suspense, mystery, historical fiction, thriller combination.

    The only flaw in this book is the same flaw present in all books of this genre. The premise is that a secret revealed about a central historical religious figure could shock and negatively impact the world. Reality proves this premise false. Tudor Parfitt's claim to have found the Lost Ark of the Covenant in the book by the same name has largely gone unnoticed. So have reports of finding Peter's ossuary because it wasn't located where established belief would have it located. Even books associated with finding the ossuary of James and a Jesus family tomb have been largely ignored or unnoticed. People without a deep religious faith could care less. Those with an unquestioning faith are not impressed. The faith of those with a deep but not unquestioning faith may not be jeopardized because a discovery does not coincide with established belief.

    At any rate, faulty premise or not, this book is more sophisticated than many books in this genre, is an entertaining read, and is complete with a surprise ending.
