Deep in an Egyptian desert known as The Great Sand Sea lies an ancient treasure trove of Hittite gold...
Legends say the gold belongs to the famed goddess, Sekhmet. But a map belonging to Nick Caine says otherwise...at least to Nick. He has returned to Egypt to claim the treasure, along with Ishi, Marie Da Vinci, and an old friend of her father’s, Akiiki Mubarek.
Twelve long and painful years have passed since the last time Nick ventured into the unforgiving landscape—a trip that cost a college buddy who once owned the map his life soon after they began digging in the desert. Forced to witness his friend’s execution, he vowed never to come back...until now.
The four treasure-hopefuls journey to the deadly wasteland just north of Sudan, and fortune seems to smile when they uncover one of Egypt’s last buried pyramids. But a band of violent marauders from Sudan descend on the site, threatening to not only claim the gold for themselves, but to spill innocent blood in the process.
A chance for redemption quickly turns into a desperate fight to survive. This time, even Nick might not escape the devil in The Great Sand Sea...
