Something is hidden beneath the shifting sands of Middle Egypt, and its discovery will bring humanity to the edge of oblivion. Archaeologist Gail Turner stumbles upon the most incredible find in living memory, a find that the ruthless Seth Mallus will do anything to get hold of.
Caught up in a web of deceit, kidnapping and murder, Gail struggles to unravel the mystery of the Amarna Stickman as the world around her descends into chaos. With startling data from NASA raising more questions than answers, she is ultimately faced with a revelation that shatters everything she thinks she knows, and who she is.
Praise for Keystone:
"What a read. The first half sets things up nicely but without giving up enough to see what's coming. The second half just moved along at such a pace I had difficulty getting things like childcare and dinner done. Small nods to influences and other fictions ground the book in a reality I know and I love (in the way Tarantino refers to pop culture and even his other films). In a world or perpetual pigeon-holing and 'if you liked this you may like this' Keystone resists this as so much is in there. Having said that, if you insist on a comparison I'd go for a tasty mix of Clive Cussler and Arthur C Clarke, which can't be bad." --Amazon Review
"I could not stop reading it and was totally hooked at the end which climaxed wonderfully." --Amazon Review
"Luke Talbot's skills as a story teller bring the world of the near future to extraordinary life. Moreover, in Gail Turner he has created a heroine for the 21st century." --Amazon Review
This book reminded me of an early, pre-Sigma, James Rollins novel. A great story full of adventure at every turn, but a little long-winded in historical and scientific explanations at times. I hope Luke writes more books.
