Summary
In the shifting desert sands of Egypt, rumours abound of a lost papyrus that will reveal the true purpose of the Pyramids of Giza. Could these ancient monoliths be the source of a new kind of energy, one that comes at no cost to the planet? CIA agent Curtis O'Connor and archaeologist Aleta Weizman are determined to find out, after a chance discovery on holiday in Cairo sets them on the trail. Close by, a shadowy and powerful group known as Pharos meets in Alexandria, its membership a closely guarded secret. Its first order of business: to orchestrate chaos on international financial markets. And what better way to do this than with a series of spectacular terrorist attacks on the world's fossil-fuel supplies? The only threat to Pharos' plans is O'Connor and Weizman. The threats to O'Connor and Weizman are too numerous to count. And the stakes are higher than anyone can imagine. From Afghanistan to Washington, Sydney to London, The Alexandria Connection is a spectacular ride. Nimbly weaving politics, history and science through a sizzling story, the bestselling author of The Inca Prophecy and The Maya Codex does not disappoint
