Facts collide with fiction in the pulse-pounding sequel to the highly praised The Alexander Cipher, featuring archaeologist Daniel Knox.

THE EXODUS QUEST

On the trail of the lost Dead Sea Scrolls, archaeologist Daniel Knox stumbles upon a theft in progress at an ancient temple near Alexandria. Then a senior Egyptian archaeologist is violently killed, and the finger of suspicion points at Knox himself. To add to his mounting worries, his partner Gaille Bonnard is kidnapped while showing a television crew around the ruins of Amarna. She manages to smuggle out a message, pleading with Knox to rescue her, but he's locked in a police cell on suspicion of murder hundreds of miles away. His only hope of clearing his name and saving Gaille is to crack one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the ancient world...before it's too late.

Will Adams worked as a shop salesman, painter & decorator, warehouse porter and microfiche technician, before joining a Washington DC-based firm of business history consultants. He wrote a series of corporate histories and biographies for them, taking time off between projects to travel in search of exotic settings for his stories. More recently, he worked for a London communications agency, but he now concentrates on writing fiction full-time. He lives in Essex, England.

  • "Will Adams's THE ALEXANDER CIPHER is a razor-edged thriller that delves deeply into crumbling tombs and ancient secrets.  Explosively paced and tautly told, the book demands to be read in one sitting." (James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Oracle).

  • "A fast-moving, finely crafted, intelligent action-adventure that delivers on all fronts. Pick it up, settle back, and enjoy the ride." (Raymond Khoury, New York Times bestselling author of The Sanctuary).

  • This is a hugely entertaining thriller, very much in the vein of Matthew Reilly: an adroit mixture of action, character, and history... and the author does an excellent job of keeping the story moving at a brisk clip while giving us all the historical background we require to understand what all the fuss is about. Surprisingly, considering its high quality, this is Adams' first novel. (Booklist).

  • A welcome respite...debut author Adams offers up something new....a plausible, fun heist-thriller that compels the reader to wonder, what if? (Library Journal).
