Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
03/10/2014
While Crichton's later work typically involved the grim consequences of combining human hubris and technology, he was also able to thrill while maintaining a lighter touch, as in The Great Train Robbery. Humor and suspense are again mixed harmoniously in this third novel he wrote under the John Lange pseudonym, featuring a team of plotters scheming to steal millions from the Egyptian government. The idea comes from an unlikely source, Harold Barnaby, a 40-something associate professor of archeology in Chicago specializing in deciphering hieroglyphics. While doing research in Cairo, he finds that a papyrus pertaining to "the procurement of firewood for the queen's hot baths" is actually a record of a previously unknown pharaoh's tomb. Estimating that the tomb's treasures might be worth as much as $50 million, Barnaby reaches out to world-wise journalist Robert Pierce to help loot the tomb. Pierce assembles a team, and concocts a plan to carry out the robbery under the very eyes of the authorities. Fans of caper novels such as Eric Ambler's The Light of Day will be happy. (Oct.)
From the Publisher
"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

Meet the Author

Michael Crichton

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.

    Well I suppose all popular writers have to start somewhere.
    This is one of Michael Crichton's earlier works written under the pseudonym of John Lange. His works are being re-released in ebook format.
    It lacks the sophistication of his later work, some of which had a tendency to be drawn out. This is more like a dime novel.
    Just quick easy reading without any complexity or real depth of character or plot.
    Most readers will know what heights Crichton was elevated to in a literary sense but for me that does not detract from the fact that this book is amateurish, flighty and lacking Crichton's later finesse.
    Thankfully the author went to on to fine-tune his craft as a scribe and create bestsellers.
    I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley.

    This book was written when the author was only26 years old. The storyline was about an Egyptian tomb that had never been found. The group of eclectic characters that were trying to rob it inserted some humor. This was a fun book with a strange ending.

    Fun, easy read

    Wasn't sure what to expect of a novel written in Michael Crichton's early days, but was pleasantly surprised. Crichton is very well-educated and that always shows up in his novels. So I appreciate his stories to have the opportunity to learn while hardly noticing it. This story sets the reader in Egypt with the very real and constant problems w/antiquities and their value. Has a great ending, very satisfying.
