The Egyptian by Layton Green
Domenic Grey goes on his greatest adventure yet…he’s off to Cairo, Egypt to locate a missing test tube which is supposed to be a cure for aging. His client, Al-Miri, claims to have discovered eternal life. If the test tube gets in the wrong hands, it could be a disaster for all mankind.
Grey still hasn’t recovered from his last case in Zimbawe and he’s still getting over the end of his romance with Nya. After their last case, Nya hasn’t been the same and Grey has no choice but to move on with his life. He delves into his work with Viktor and devotes himself to helping Al-Miri.
He had no intentions of finding romance, but that’s exactly what happens when he runs into the beautiful journalist Veronica. She manages to get herself in the middle of the investigation. This could be the biggest story of her career. She won't let anything get in her way, not even her attraction to Grey.
Grey and Veronica do not have much time for their developing romance as friends turn into enemies, scientists are being murdered and religious cults could be taking over. They race against the clock to discover what's really behind Al-Miri's motives and stop him before it's too late.
This is the second Domenic Grey thriller by Layton Green and it’s guaranteed to take readers on a roller coaster ride they won’t soon be forgetting. The story absorbs the reader into the adventure and takes you to another land, leaving readers breathless and anticipating what will happen next. The book did tend to get a bit too technical for me, but that didn’t stop my enjoyment of it. Layton Green has done his research and it shines through on each page. I will be anxiously awaiting the next installment of the Grey adventures.
These books each stand alone, but it's more fun to read them together. This weekend, and this weekend only - Amazon and Barnes & Noble have both ebooks, The Egyptian and The Summoner (read my previous review of this fabulous book by clicking the title), on sale for 99 cents each!
