This was my first read by Brian and I really enjoyed it. It was a tale of the seen and unseen, known and unknown. A book full of adventure and past guilts.
Imogen Riley goes on an expedition to see if what happened to an expedition led by her grandfather. Her grandfather is the only survivor of this expedition; suffering from a form of insanity that seems to loosen his group of reality.
His body is body is covered in strange markings that no one seems to be able to translate; do they have a meaning? Armed with her grandfather’s journal she joins an expedition led by his academic partner Dr Nathan Trummel.
They are on a search to find a tomb. A tomb that has difference, set in a tomb that is inside a moutain not in a pyramid.
This leads through a myriad of tunnels that each has a peril for a member of the expedition. All have baggage from their past that affects them and others.
Read on to find out out you will be glad you did.
Brian’s writing is a type that will drag you along in the wake of the words on an exciting tale. His characters are well drawn and what a motley crew they were.
Trummel comes over as a greedy, ambitious and psychopathic. Imogen is a practical, hardened sceptic; believing only what she can see or touch. And Caleb is a photographer with a spiratual bent. The rest are a mixture of mercenary types whose main motives seems to be greed.
