The Exodus Quest

Facts collide with fiction in the pulse-pounding sequel to the highly praised The Alexander Cipher, featuring archaeologist Daniel Knox.


On the trail of the lost Dead Sea Scrolls, archaeologist Daniel Knox stumbles upon a theft in progress at an ancient temple near Alexandria. Then a senior Egyptian archaeologist is violently killed, and the finger of suspicion points at Knox himself. To add to his mounting worries, his partner Gaille Bonnard is kidnapped while showing a television crew around the ruins of Amarna. She manages to smuggle out a message, pleading with Knox to rescue her, but he's locked in a police cell on suspicion of murder hundreds of miles away. His only hope of clearing his name and saving Gaille is to crack one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the ancient world...before it's too late.

I have always been interested in all things Egyptian so I was excited to read this book. Unfortunately, as seems to be a habit of mine, I did not read the first in this series. Although I will after reading this novel. This book had an interesting theory about the possibility that Akhenaten and N... ...more

Daniel Knox reminds me of Indiana Jones with his relaxed manner except when someone he cares for is in danger.

If you like the first Daniel Knox story you'll love this one. Similar twists and chases but a nice story line, good recurrence of characters from the fist book and an interesting mix of less than Wholesome Christian Motives in an Islamic world ...more

This is a sequel to "The Alexandria Affair" or something like that. Perhaps all the character development was in taken care of in that book.

This is the Da Vinci Code on ____, well, one of those drugs that makes people go fast and be jittery and not eat anything. The Da Vinci elements are there; a... ...more

The blurb for this book on this site begins by saying that "fact collides with fiction." Well, that at least is accurate. Unfortunately, fact gets knocked clean out and tossed from the book right away. I found it amusing that this book makes fun of a character who writes books that put forward wi... ...more

This could have been much a much better book. But isn't because it really seems like it can't decide what it actually wants to be.An interesting, surprising ancient revelation. or an action story. Unfortunately, it ends up feeling like it falls in an unenthusiastic heap somewhere between the two.... ...more

If you are looking for a fun read full of ancient Egyptian history this mix of adventure and romance is a rollicking good time. The second book to feature archeologist and adventurer Daniel Knox and his partner Gaille Bonnard by Will Adams is that rare instance where what we read between the bind... ...more

I wanted so much to like this series. Normally, I love these kinds of stories. I'd read the first book, The Alexander Cipher, and shared the feelings of many of its other reviewers on here - poor character development, particularly in regards to the female characters who were either patheric Mary... ...more
