But first, a word from … Today’s Sponsor
Here’s the set-up:
At a mausoleum in Cairo’s most notorious cemetery, a mercenary receives a package containing a silver test tube suspended in hydraulic stasis.
An investigative reporter tracking rogue biomedical companies is terrified by the appearance of a mummified man outside her Manhattan apartment.
A Bulgarian scientist who dabbles in the occult makes a startling discovery in his underground laboratory.
These seemingly separate events collide when Dominic Grey and Viktor Radek, private investigators of cults, are hired by the CEO of an Egyptian biomedical firm to locate stolen research integral to the company’s new life extension product. However, after witnessing the slaughter of a team of scientists by the remnants of a dangerous cult thought long abandoned, Grey and Viktor turn from pursuers to pursued.
From the gleaming corridors of visionary laboratories to the cobblestone alleys of Eastern Europe to a lost oasis in the Sahara, Grey and Viktor must sift through science and myth to uncover the truth behind the Egyptian and his sinister biotech – before that truth kills them.
For fans of Douglas Preston, Steve Berry, Dan Brown and the X-Files.
About the Author: Layton is also the Kindle bestselling author of the suspense novel The Summoner (first in the Dominic Grey series of stand-alone novels), as well as the mystery novella Hemingway’s Ghost. Please visit him at laytongreen.com.
From the reviewers:
“I’m about to make a pretty bold statement here. Layton Green’s The Egyptian is the strongest, best written indie book I’ve ever read . . . [If] James Bond and the X-Files had a love child, this book would be it.” –Keryl Raist, To Publish or Not to Publish
“The Egyptian combines mythology and modern scientific research in a fantastic thriller that leaves the reader breathless and on the edge of their seat. Green’s writing reminds me of Michael Crichton’s works with the mysteries, thrills, and the life-changing scientific discoveries.” –Cherie Reich, Surrounded by Books
“This is what you get when you combine Indiana Jones with Ludlum’s Jason Borne . . . A must read for all you lovers of conspiracy theories, thrillers and mysteries alike!” —Baffled Books
“Layton Green is an absolutely brilliant writer.” –Everything To Do With Books
“Layton Green has written a tale with supernatural and political undertones that unravels with ever increasing suspense . . . The book is plain terrific.” –Richard Marek, former President and Publisher of E.P. Dutton
“Layton Green is a gifted writer.” — Readers Favorite
“[T]his book is above and beyond in its narrative, its cohesiveness, the depth of its characters and the quality of the writing. This is one of the best books I’ve ever read for Odyssey Reviews.” —Odyssey Reviews
“[C]alls to mind such series as Jason Bourne and Indiana Jones, with supernatural/religious overtones thrown in.” —Bookhound’s Den
“An awesome read . . . The writing is polished and evocative, the subject matter fascinating, the characters intriguing, and the pace non-stop. Spooky and occasionally metaphysical, The Summoner harkens back to The Serpent and the Rainbow in its ability to convincingly portray seemingly paranormal events in a realistic (and therefore even creepier) manner.” —Blood Writes, Mystery Pick of the Week
“Wow. This book, it packs a walloping punch . . . What a truly original story this was.” –Tiffany Harkleroad, Book Blogger and Amazon Vine Voice
