When the NUMA crew is exposed to a dangerous toxin, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala will stop at nothing to find a cure foretold by Ancient Egyptian lore in this exhilarting novel from the number one New York Times best-selling series.
Head of NUMA special assignments, Kurt Austin and his most trusted friend, Joe Zavala tangle with a ruthless powerbroker scheming to build a new Egyptian empire as glorious as those of the Pharaohs. Part of their adversary's plan rests on the manipulation of a newly discovered aquifer beneath the Sahara, but an even more devastating weapon at his disposal may threaten the entire world: A plant extract known as the black mist, discovered in the City of the Dead and rumored to have the power to take life from the living and restore it to the dead.
With the balance of power in Africa and Europe on the verge of tipping, Kurt, Joe, and the rest of the NUMA team will have to fight to discover the truth behind the legends - but to do that, they have to confront in person the greatest legend of them all: Osiris, the ruler of the Egyptian underworld.

This novel is a NUMA series, and deals with a plan to control water supplies in the Middle East along with a mysterious nerve toxin that kills...sort of. Character developments isn't really a strong point in this book, but it doesn't really matter. The story is interesting (not too far-fetched) and the action is continuous. It's an engrossing read throughout, and I enjoyed reading chapter-by-chapter, always drawn in quickly. In the end, that's what I want from a book like this: keep me entertained and wanting more, and that's all that matters.

I know Clive Custler stories are meant to be a bit 'gung ho' and not in the real world, but this particular story pushed that theme too far and by the time I neared the end I had lost any interest in the final outcome, which was probably the daftest thing in the whole book.
I like a good devil may care adventure story, but I'm afraid this wasn't one.
Up to the author's usual standard.
I am looking forwad to the next one.
