The Breath of Life [ePub]

by Mark Edward Hall

1939, deep in the heart of the Egyptian desert, archeologist Winston Smith has made the discovery of a lifetime. An old kingdom mastaba tomb. But Smith suspects, from the markings on the door, that this tomb contains relics from the period of the new kingdom, the eighteenth dynasty. So begins an adventure that takes Smith deep beneath the Egyptian desert, while on the surface a storm is kicking up, Nazis have arrived on the scene, and a special child is about to be born. As each adventure unfolds simultaneously and at breakneck speed the reader is taken along on a dizzying thrill ride of wonders and horrors, while elsewhere the architects of the future are making plans for an important arrival.
The Breath of Life is a fun, fast paced thriller steeped heavily in the tradition of the legendary pulp novels of the early twentieth century.

The kindle version of The Breath of Life now includes surprise bonus material.
