Alexander Cipher review
If you're a fan of the Indiana Jones movies, then you'll enjoy this book by Will Adams. It's an archealogical thriller full of political intrigue and history surrounding the final resting place of Alexander the Great.
Daniel Knox is an Egyptologist who gets pulled into a plot to give Macedonians the rights of ownership to Alexander the Great's tomb. He stumbles into an excavation that only wants to move the tomb from Egypt.
The twists and turns in this book were fun. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who likes non-stop action and history.
