unlinked ways Confronting in the descriptions of the seedy side of life and some of the language also not to my taste, however, the story is so convoluted and good that you just have to know what is going to happen next.A look at corporate greed, the politics of middle eastern countries and the animosity that exists between different cultures and religions The personal stories within the story are intertwined with ease and only add to the depth of the main characters An excellent very well written book, I was torn between a 4 or 5 star rating Paul Sussman, journalist and archaeologist,

Arieh Ben Roe, a detective in Jerusalem and Yusuf Khalifa of the Luxor Police and their own deeply personal and involving stories are played out alongside their joint investigation of the murder of a woman in an Armenian Cathedral in the Old City of Jerusalem They uncover a network of crime and abuse, which has its origins in an ancient Egyptian mystery and includes the world s oldest sins.I would recommend all of Paul Sussman s novels but this book is superb There is something extraordinarily poignant in the tales of these two men, Khalifa and Ben Roe This is a novel about family and death How terrible that Paul Sussman should have died in May this year, aged just45, just weeks before The Labyrinth s publication It is a marvellous novel but, when you close the final page, reeling from its revelations, there is also great sorrow in knowing that there can be no.The full review is now up on For Winter Nights Won through a Goodreads Giveaway This is the first novel I have read by the late Paul Sussman but it will not be the last Although it s saddening that this collection of stories involving Yusuf Khalifa and Arieh Ben Roi, I look forward to reading the other two books that preceded this one The story is told in such a atmospheric and descriptive manner that it s hard not to feel like I m in the deserts of Egypt or on the streets of Jerusalem I thoroughly enjoyed the pace of this novel as well Won through a Goodreads Giveaway This is the first novel I have read by the late Paul Sussman but it will not be the last Although it s saddening that this collection of stories

feel like I m in the deserts of Egypt or on the streets of Jerusalem I thoroughly enjoyed the pace of this novel as well The moments of boredom were far and few between The interweaving stories really help keep the story moving forward Initally I was confused as to what everything had to do with anything until the layers started to peel off What s most interesting about this novel are the main characters Khalifa and Ben Roi and their differences Khalifa is Muslim and Ben Roi is Jewish The author poked fun at their differences in a way that wasn t offensive but also brought a little laughter to a rather dark storyline I mention a dark storyline because Khalifa is the one with the most baggage that is heartbreaking at moments Overall, both leads were well written and are the reasons why I would love to go back from the beginning of this series.My one problem with this book is that this is where a great series ends I am so happy that I had the oppurtunity to read this novel I probably would not have picked it up had I not won it so thanks again Goodreads for broadening my horizons A riveting well written adventure story, much to enjoy and unlike many other books of a similar vein no compromises.
