If you think geeks never get away from their computers, you’ve never met Lexi Carmichael and her friends. They have action packed adventures while solving mysteries that require all of their knowledge. In this story, a pandemic has the chance of breaking out if the cure cannot be figured out and figured out quickly. This has Lexi, her boyfriend, Slash and her friend, Elvis along with a co-worker of Elvis traveling to Egypt. Besides all the great historical stuff they see, Lexi has to deal with a problem she’s never had to before. Codes and mysteries from Biblical times just add to the fun. The characters are well thought out. The story has twists, turns, good guys, bad guys and surprises. Though part of an excellent series, each book does stand alone. People, places and things from previous books do appear in this one. I strongly urge you to pick this book up even if you haven’t met Lexi before because you will love her.
Lexi heads over to her good friend Elvis’s house only to have her plans totally changed. Elvis’s father, who he hasn’t seen or heard from in years, sent him a package containing a virus with no known way to cure it. It get answers, Elvis is heading to Egypt to locate his father. Lexi won’t let him go alone and Slash isn’t letting Lexi go without him. To round the group out, they are joined by the woman who figured out the virus. They better find all the answers they need quickly as Elvis’s brother gets married in a week and Lexi is the Maid of Honor!
Although I never expected it, my work as a computer geek has me traveling around the world, solving mysteries and fighting bad guys. Sometimes with my friends, but always with trouble by my side. So you'd think by now, I would've expected to be plagued by danger when I headed to Egypt with my best friend, Elvis Zimmerman, and boyfriend, Slash, to help track down Elvis's missing and estranged father. Nope.
Genius runs in the family, and we quickly discovered Elvis's father is hot on the trail of an ancient and elusive artifact. One that people are willing to kill to find. Tombs, tablets, scarabs, and code come together as we follow a set of clues that has been waiting millennia to be discovered. Cracking code is my speciality, but I never expected to tackle one from fifteen hundred years before the advent of written language.
But the sands of time are running out. We are facing death as it was before the pyramids even existed. If the artifact falls into the wrong hands, we won't be able to rewrite history. So it's up to us to find and safeguard the secret to ensure no living soul ever encounters it...again.
