As an international TV audience waits for the archeologists to open a recently discovered vault under the Great Sphinx, student Macy Sharif has found the excavation and Egypt boring as the leader Dr. Berkley detests debutants being fostered on him due to favors and donations. Upset as she is a serious student who wants to contribute, Macy considers leaving until she overhears a discussion about another dig behind schedule. Apparently in an upper newer chamber of the Great Sphinx, led by Shaban, a splinter group is looking for a map that leads to the mythical lost pyramid of Osiris. They see her so she flees for her life. However, on Shaban's team are corrupt government officials like Hamid so they arrange for Macy to be declared a criminal while they hunt her down for execution. Macy contacts the only person she trusts with her life, defrocked American archaeologist Nina Wilde; whose reputation has been shredded in a garbage disposal by the Eden fiasco (see The Covenant of Genesis). With former SAS operative Eddie Chase at her side the pair begins a search for the Pyramid of Osiris while trying to keep Macy safe from a fanatical cult and their Diamondback bodyguard. The fifth Wild Chase thriller is at its best when the focus is on the race to find The Pyramid of Doom; when the tale centers on the relationship between the lead adventurers it loses steam as the quarreling bantering after four previous escapades of this makes them for the most part seem childish and petty. Still the fast-paced action is fun to follow and the prime villain ultra chilly. Andy McDermott provides an exciting entry in his enthralling saga. Harriet Klausner

The first book of Andy McDermotts I read was The secret of Excalibur. After reading that I had to backtrack and read the rest of the books about this duo. This book was just as good as the first.Eddie Chase and Nina Wilde keep up their jokes in this action packed book with a very good twist I didn't see coming in the end. Be sure to read on the week-end because you won't be able to put it down until the end.

I found the bad guys were all talk and no action. The good guys were over confident and all action. So a mixed feeling about the book. It's all make believe so enjoy the read.

Another solid Eddie and Nina outing, this one with an Egyptian flare. Still suspended from IHA and fighting depression Nina is contacted by a young archaeology student, Macy concerning a Pyramid that is about to be robbed. With little to do and bad guys trying to kill them Nina, Eddie and Macy begin their journey taking the to Egypt, Paris, Switzerland. Lot's of twists and turns revolving around many Egyptian treasures mixed with some lunatic zealots. Fast paced with a good and happy ending for all 3 main characters.

Dr. Nina Wilde and her husband, Eddie Chase, continue to astound archeologists and the world, by uncovering yet another unknown treasure. This one leads to the possibility of the existence of the fabled Pyramid of Osiris and a conspiracy the goes far beyond archeology. We are introduced to college student Macy Sharif, who is bored with her summer job on the project in Egypt. In just eight days, the leader of the expedition promises to reveal the existence of the Hall of Records, long thought to be mythological. Her boredom vanishes when she realizes some of the project members are plotting to remove treasures without the knowledge of the International Heritage Agency sponsors. Macy turns out to be resourceful as well when she escapes from the thugs who are inexplicably trying to kill her. She appeals to her idol, Dr. Nina Wilde for help. Nina, who has been suffering from depression after being "suspended" from IHA because of her disgrace in the Garden of Eden disaster, meets with Macy in a New York coffee shop called 52 Perk Up, and they're off! A quest to uncover the secrets of an Osiris cult leads to a romp from Egypt to Paris, on to Switzerland and even Monaco. A handsome, vacuous, action movie star, Grant Thorn, gets mixed up in the adventure, along with a pair of murderous Egyptian brothers and an American named Bobby Diamondback who favors snakeskin jackets. This eventually ties in with a plot that could kill millions. The car chases and shoot-outs go on a little too long and are sometimes a little too contrived for this reader, but fans of Nina and ex-SAS bodyguard Eddie will certainly expect them and will willingly suspend disbelief. Amid the action and double-crossing, shoot-em-up excitement are the serious themes dealing with the relationship of Nina and Eddie, Nina's suffering self-esteem and Macy's voyage of self-discovery. And, most satisfying for the fans of this series, the future is left up in the air at the end. Another wild ride is surely coming right up!
