The dazzling new novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling NUMA Files series from Clive Cussler.
Kurt and Joe tangle with a ruthless enemy—a power broker bent on building a new Egyptian empire as glorious as those of the pharaohs. Part of his plan rests on the manipulation of a newly discovered aquifer beneath the Sahara, but an even more devastating weapon at his disposal may threaten the entire world: a plant extract known as the black mist, rumored to have the power to take life from the living and restore it to the dead. Now the NUMA team will have to fight to discover the truth behind the legends—but to do that, they must confront the greatest legend of them all: Osiris, the ruler of the Egyptian underworld.
