Henry had warned her. “If you go to Cairo, you might get yourself killed, Isabel.”
But what choice does she have? She has to search for Sean, her missing husband, and she’s found out that a hospital in Cairo treated an American patient recently, who had been brought to the city from Germany. But she’s arrived at the wrong moment. A mass uprising is being crushed in Tahrir Square. The next day, an Egyptian billionaire announces a spectacular discovery at the Great Pyramid of Giza. Isabel goes to meet him. She’s been told he might help her.
Driven by desperation, she ends up deep in the desert, at a camp run by the Muslim Brotherhood. They kill her driver, and ask her to carry out one simple task. They will lead her to Sean if she does it. But what they are asking goes against everything she believes in.
The Great Pyramid of Giza hides the final part of the puzzle that Isabel and Sean have been unraveling since they encountered it in Istanbul. In a fabled hall, assumed by most to be an ancient myth, Isabel discovers the truth about what lies beneath the Great Pyramid, and what really happened to her husband.
