Rachel Kirby, a computer genius whose beloved twin sister is dying from a chronc illness, receives a mysterious email from archeologist John Tanek who sits trapped inside a collapsed Egyptian tomb with a functioning laptop thousands of miles away. It turns out the collapse was no accident. John has discovered something very valuable in that tomb, something that humankind has been searching for throughout history, something that Rachel could use as it may hold the key to her sister's cure--if they both can stay alive long enough to unravel the ancient mystery.… (mais)

This book was ok. Not great, just ok. The two main characters, Rachel and Tavak, were both arrogant and unlikable. By the end of the book, they had both grown on me, but having two such characters is not the best way to engage the reader. The story about a search for an ancient Egyptian cure was interesting and thought provoking. But overall, the book was not as good as some of the other ones I have read from this author. ( )

Rachel Kirby is desperately trying to find a cure for her ailing sister using a computer called Jonesy. But not only is someone--John Tavak--siphoning off some of the computer's processing power but someone is out to kill her. Furthermore, John Tavak in Egypt needs her help. Together, they search the ancient history, hoping that Peseshet may give them the key to save Rachel's sister's life...and their own.

Very well thought out story and very well written. I enjoyed it. ( )

I liked this book much more than the previous one they did together. Lots of good action, tech, little bit of romance, a mystery to follow. An altogether enjoyable read! Looking forward to more from mother and son. ( )

I bought this audiobook at a library book sale and there was some skipping on a couple of the CDs. However, I don't think I missed much. Even though I drove while giving only half an ear to the book I found I was able to predict what was going to happen. No big mysteries for me.

Rachel Kirby has a sister with a degenerative disease Rachel is desperate to find a cure for. Her last option deals with the rumor of an ancient Egyptian healer who left her secrets buried with her in her tomb. Rachel joins forces with a zillionaire named Tavak to discover the location of Perseshet's tomb before others can destroy any evidence.

I was bothered by the destruction of the tomb with little regard to the archeological value but, hey, what else would I expect from a book like this?

Basically, it was mildly entertaining. ( )

This was written by the team of Roy and Iris Johansen and is the 3rd I've read by the duo and I must say that I really like Storm Cycle and the previous being Kendra Michael mysteries which I'm hooked on.

Rachel Kirby is a genius who runs a program at the university with the world's most powerful computer. She is in charge of allocating what projects get 'cycles" to use this computer called Jonsie. She went into this field because of medical research to help her sister who has a terminal disease.

If I was Rachel's sister I would go nuts because of the box Rachel has put her in and doesn't allow her to do anything except that does change towards the middle of the book.

John Tavak is across the world in Egypt and has hacked Jonsie to help him with a project of his own. The unite traveling all over the world chasing clues to an ancient text that just might help Rachel's sister.

There are other people that want this information and will stop at nothing to get it. It is a very dangerous, the competition always seems one step ahead of them and isn't afraid to kill anyone that gets in their way.
