Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Under the direction of famed explorer Porter Stone, an archaeological team is secretly attempting to locate the tomb of an ancient pharaoh who was unlike any other in history. Stone believes he has found the burial chamber of King Narmer, the near mythical god- king who united upper and lower Egypt in 3200 B.C., and the archaeologist has reason to believe that the greatest prize of all--Narmer's crown--might be buried with him. No crown of an Egyptian king has ever been discovered, and Narmer's is the elusive "double" crown of the two Egypts, supposedly pos-sessed of awesome powers.
The dig itself is located in one of the most forbidding places on earth--the Sudd, a nearly impassable swamp in north-ern Sudan. Amid the nightmarish, disorienting tangle of mud and dead vegetation, a series of harrowing and inexpli-cable occurrences are causing people on the expedition to fear a centuries- old curse. With a monumental discovery in reach, Professor Jeremy Logan is brought onto the project to investigate. What he finds will raise new questions . . . and alarm.
In the hands of master storyteller Lincoln Child, "The Third Gate" breaks new ground and introduces a fascinating new protagonist to the thriller world.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2011-07-01)

Back in 3200 B.C.E, King Narmer united Upper and Lower Egypt. Now, deep in the Sudd, a nasty swamp in northern Sudan, explorer Peter Stone is directing an archaeological dig aimed at uncovering Narmer's tomb. When folks on the dig get worried about an ancient curse, Stone brings in Professor Jeremy Logan (you'll remember him from brief appearances in Deep Storm and Terminal Freeze). Looks as if we may be seeing more of Logan; meanwhile, this is obviously one of the big thrillers of the season.

Review by Library Journal (2012-05-01)

Famous treasure hunter Porter Stone is on the hunt in the most unlikely place in the world. The Sudd, a forsaken wasteland that is neither land nor water south of the Egyptian border, may be the final resting place of Narmer, the king/pharaoh who united the kingdoms of Upper and Lower Egypt nearly 5000 years ago. Narmer's curse over his tomb is particularly vicious, and when strange occurrences begin to appear to match the curse, Porter's crew of archaeologists, engineers, and scientists is spooked. Enigmalogist Jeremy Logan must separate truth from legend, true danger from bizarre and paranormal phenomena, before the crew can find and enter Narmer's tomb.

Verdict: Child (Terminal Freeze) has written a fast-paced, twisty archaeological adventure tale that is well researched and tightly constructed to grab readers and leave them gasping for breath.

Review by Library Journal (2012-06-01)

Archaeologist Porter Stone and Yale professor Jeremy Logan delve deeply into the swamps of Northern Sudan in search of a powerful artifact: the crown of King Narmer, the first pharaoh of Egypt.

Verdict: A master of spine-chilling suspense, Child (Terminal Freeze) creates a tension-filled, fast-paced adventure sure to please fans of the supernatural thriller.
