Deep in an Egyptian desert known as The Great Sand Sea lies an ancient treasure trove of Hittite gold...

Legends say the gold belongs to the famed goddess, Sekhmet. But a map belonging to Nick Caine says least to Nick. He has returned to Egypt to claim the treasure, along with Ishi, Marie Da Vinci, and an old friend of her father's, Akiiki Mubarek.

Twelve long and painful years have passed since the last time Nick ventured into the unforgiving landscape--a trip that cost a college buddy who once owned the map his life soon after they began digging in the desert. Forced to witness his friend's execution, he vowed never to come back...until now.

The four treasure-hopefuls journey to the deadly wasteland just north of Sudan, and fortune seems to smile when they uncover one of Egypt's last buried pyramids...a pyramid that looks remarkably like its Mayan counterparts. But a band of violent marauders from Sudan descend on the site, threatening to not only claim the gold for themselves, but to spill innocent blood in the process.

A chance for redemption quickly turns into a desperate fight to survive. This time, even Nick might not escape the devil in The Great Sand Sea...

    Absolutely Amazing!!!!! :O) Ni

    Absolutely Amazing!!!!! :O) Nick, Marie and Ishi are at it again. This time they are in Egypt to complete a dig that Nick first started with his best friend Mario before Maries Uncle had murdered him. Nick hopes that not only will he find the gold that is supposed to surpass anything they have found so far but that he will also be able to put his demons to rest concerning Mario and move on with his life without nightmares. This time they are joined by someone Marie knows through her father. Akiiki.

    Not long after they get there Nick feels that the spot they originally tried to dig at was not the right spot so he wanted to look elsewhere. When they finally camp out at the spot that Nick feels is right Akiiki gives them the warning that the pyramid they are looking for may belong to Sekmet and that if it is then what they had went through before was nothing. That night after Nick goes to sleep he has a very realistic dream about his father. More of a premonition of things to come.

    Right after they find a door and gold they are attacked and taken prisoner by bandits once again. This ones leaders name is Motumbo. He is probably the most ruthless out of all the ones they have dealt with so far. He is very angry because all the gold Nick says they found is all of a sudden gone. There is an assumed casualty on Nicks end but all is not as it seems... Nick of course is his attitude laden self. Once again it will take some quick thinking on Nicks part along with some unexpected help to get them out of the dire situation that they find themselves in.

    This really was the best one yet. There was more of danger aspect to it. More ruthless villains. The first two books had more realistic situations in it. This one had a bit more of a supernatural aspect something you would have to have an open mind for if you are not into the supernatural. But as I am a huge fan of all things in that genre I absolutely loved it. By far my favorite so far. I can't wait till the next one. I highly recommend this whole series and especially this book!!

    I am a huge fan of this series! With each book, I am becoming a bigger and bigger fan of Nick Caine and his adventures.
    Each book, we we see a little more into Nick and his personality. I enjoy the archeology and the past that gets discovered in these books. I love the excitement and the adventure as well as the touch of humor that just endears Nick to me. Ishi and Marie are a great supporting cast and I look forward to the next installment to see where in the world they end up and what kind of trouble they get into. I am a big fan of both of these authors, so to combine them in one book... it is a no-miss for me. Great job JR and Aiden!
