Overview

Oliver Lucas is a professional tomb robber, though he prefers to think of himself as an adventure photographer and relic hunter, especially in the decade since his previous career fell to pieces in the wake of a discovery that led him to abandon academia and begin scouring the world for clues to an ancient conspiracy.

Now a powerful man wants Oliver to track down a relic from the pages of history: the staff Moses used to call down plagues, part the sea, and lead the Hebrews out of Egypt. Unfortunately, the scroll that points the way to this relic is in hands of a band of renegade military contractors, and the only connection Oliver has to them is through a disgraced Egyptian spymaster.

Oliver calls on Diana Jordan, an expert in ancient art and languages, and former lover, to help him complete his quest. She agrees to help him, despite their tangled history, because his mission unexpectedly dovetails with her own investigation into the origin of a mysterious mural in the Egyptian wing of the Louvre in Paris. Together they set off for Egypt, prepared to track down the staff no matter who stands in their way.

It isn't long before Oliver and Diana find themselves in over their heads, confronting undead guardians, ancient cults, and the unleashed power of the staff itself.

A compelling blend of modern thriller and ancient myth, The Staff of Moses transports readers to a land where corruption, betrayal, and supernatural forces collide under the blazing desert sun.
