‘The Egyptian’ is due for release on August 27th 2011, initially as an e-book only, but with plans for a paperback edition to follow a little later down the line.
I have already started reading the ARC copy, which Layton kindly forwarded to me and will be publishing my thoughts about it, a little nearer to the official release date.
For anyone interested in reading some great cult fiction, full of intrigue, hard-hitting action and suspense, then watch the events page, where details of a great double offer on both books, will be be announced soon….
Synopsis taken from the author’s advance reading copy information
At a mausoleum in Cairo’s most notorious cemetery, a mercenary receives a package containing a silver test tube suspended in hydraulic stasis.
A Bulgarian scientist who dabbles in the occult makes a startling discovery in his underground laboratory.
These seemingly separate events collide when Dominic Grey and Viktor Radek, private investigators of cults, are hired by the CEO of an Egyptian biomedical firm to locate stolen research integral to the company’s new life extension product. However, after witnessing the slaughter of a team of scientists by the remnants of a dangerous cult thought long abandoned, Grey and Viktor turn from pursuers to pursued.
From the gleaming corridors of visionary laboratories to the cobblestone alleys of Eastern Europe to a lost oasis in the Sahara, Grey and Viktor must sift through science and myth to uncover the truth behind the Egyptian and his sinister biotech – before that truth kills them.
