Head of Zeus
The Pharaoh Key
The Pharaoh Key Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child
 Gideon Crew, 5

The latest pulse-pounding thriller from New York Times bestsellers Preston & Child.

There's no such thing as too great a risk for a man living on borrowed time.

Gideon Crew is out of a job but it is the least of his worries: his doctor has just told him he has only months to live.

Time enough for one last adventure.

For a century, the infamously enigmatic hieroglyphs etched into the Phaistos Disk have defied interpretation. But now, after five long years of computer-aided code-breaking, Gideon has a lead on an undiscovered civilization, long-lost beneath the sands of the Egyptian Sahara.

As a man facing the end of his days, Crew needs little persuasion to pack up and head out into the heart of the desert.

'Sit back, crack open the book and get ready for the ride of your life' DAVID BALDACCI.
'A collision between past and present that will leave you breathless' LEE CHILD.
'Relentless mayhem ... [A] thrill-a-minute read' KIRKUS.
'Their most expertly executed entertainment yet ... A big-boned thriller, one that will make a terrific movie' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.
'Will keep you reading into the late hours of the night' CLIVE CUSSLER.
