The Hidden Oasis Reviews

A storyteller who really knows what he's writing about... reading The Hidden Oasis is a totally immersive experience: the richness of the world he creates and the authenticity of the characters who populate it draw you in mercilessly and, before you know it, you're in the grip of his meticulously constructed plot and living a parallel life through its pages...The Hidden Oasis is a rip-roaring gem of a read - you are in for a real treat! * Raymond Khoury, author of The Last Templar *
A compelling, high-octane adventure novel that seamlessly meshes past and present to bring vividly to life one of the most enduring mysteries of ancient Egypt. The author's extensive knowledge of Egyptian pre-history is effortlessly woven into a fast and furious tale studded with thrilling chases, characters who are rarely what they seem, implacably evil villains and a delightful heroine. Deception, deceit and lies abound and the plot twists and turns to keep the reader guessing, all the way to the awesome climax. * James Becker, author of The First Apostle & The Moses Stone *
Another winner from Paul Sussman - hands down one of the best writers of international suspense in the business. Told with authority and style, excitement melds with adventure - you can feel the scorching desert heat and the chapping, acrid winds. The Hidden Oasis offers bone chilling thrills, a flair for the macabre and off-the-charts suspense. Superb. * Steve Berry, author of The Templar Legacy, The Romanov Prophecy and The Charlemagne Pursuit *
Believable characters, fascinating history and an evocative sense of place - especially Cairo and the dry heat of the Sahara. There's nothing dry about the visceral violence and thrilling action scenes, however, and best of all is the terrifying secret at the heart of the story - The Hidden Oasis itself. * Michael Cordy, author of The Messiah Code *
The Hidden Oasis evokes a lost world of primordial myth that men have sought since the very dawn of history... amidst non-stop action - and literal cliffhangers - Paul Sussman again convinces us that there is nothing boring about the lost worlds of archaeology * KATHERINE NEVILLE, author of The Eight *

About Paul Sussman

Journalist and novelist Paul Sussman read history at Cambridge, where he won a Joseph Larmor Award and was a Boxing Blue. From an early age his abiding passion was archaeology and he worked in the field, in particular in Egypt (where he was part of the first team to excavate new ground in the Valley of the Kings since the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922). He brought this interest and enthusiasm to his novels - The Lost Army of Cambyses, The Last Secret of the Temple, The Hidden Oasis and The Labyrinth of Osiris - which have been translated into over 30 languages and have sold over three million copies. Paul's journalism appeared across the media, including in the Big Issue, Independent, Guardian, Evening Standard and on CNN.com.
Paul died suddenly in May 2012, aged 45. He is survived by his wife, a television producer, and their two sons. In 2014, the posthumous publication of what was in fact his first novel - The Final Testimony of Raphael Ignatius Phoenix - fulfilled a long-held wish.
