The Moses Quest

By Will Adams (Mass Market, 2011)
Previously published in hardcover as The Exodus Quest

Facts collide with fiction in the pulse-pounding sequel to the highly praised The Alexander Cipher, featuring archaeologist Daniel Knox and linguist Gaille Bonnard.
***
On a dusty market street in Alexandria, Egyptologist Daniel Knox stumbles across a Dead Sea Scroll jar, a unique find that puts him on the trail of an ancient Jewish sect and a possible explanation for one of the greatest mysteries of all time. The sojourn in Egypt and the ensuing exodus with Moses are among the founding stories of Judaism. So why is there not a single mention of them in Egyptian records?

Gaille Bonnard, Knox's partner, is abducted and a hostage tape threatening her murder is run on TV. Certain that Gaille has hidden a message to him in the broadcast, Knox races across Egypt, desperate to save her before it's too late. Tangling with a murderously zealous preacher, celebrity pseudo-archaeologists, and renegade Egyptian policemen, Knox follows Gaille's clue to the ancient city of Amarna and the tomb of the heretic pharaoh Akhenaten-where he just might find the answer to one of the most important puzzles in history.

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.

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).
