PHARAOH: free chapter preview

I'm delighted to say that my UK publisher Headline have put up a free chapter sample from Pharaoh on their website, in advance of the UK paperback publication next month. Click anywhere on the jacket image below for a free download. The excerpt comes from a chapter about a third of the way through the novel. Earlier, Jack and Costas had made an astonishing discovery in the Mediterranean, searching for looted Egyptian antiquities on a 19th century wreck. What they find takes them up the Nile beyond Egypt to the deserts of the Sudan, to a place inundated by the waters of the Aswan Dam that provides clues not only to an ancient Pharaoh but also to a British officer whose mission in the 1880s becomes part of Jack's own quest. Read more to follow Jack and Costas on of the most incredible dives of their careers ....

The paperback of Pharaoh is published in the UK on 26 September and in the US on 1 October; the UK hardback and ebook are already available, as is the hardback of the French edition from Editions les Escales. To find out more from my publishers, visit my author pages at my UK publisher Headline and my US publisher Bantam Dell.
