Workers in Alexandria are excavating for a new building when they
discover the ruins of an old tomb, and all work crashes to a halt.
According to federal law in Egypt, all discoveries must be properly
cataloged by archeologists and this tomb has unusual relics and
representations, apparently contemporary with Alexander the Great.
Daniel Knox's first love is history and archeology, specifically on
Alexander the Great. When he pisses off a local mobster on the coast of
Egypt, he heads to Alexandria to an archaeology colleague's apartment
to hide out for a while. He learns his friend is getting to participate
on the dig for this newly discovered tomb. Sneaking in with his friend,
Daniel sees signs that the find is far bigger than anyone realizes and
might hold clues to finally unraveling one of the world's greatest
mysteries: Where is Alexander the Great buried? In his
lifetime, Alexander was beloved as a god, and across the Mediterranean,
everyone wanted to be close to him. Upon his death, there was a mad
scrabbling among his former allies to secure his empire for themselves.
Even now, nearly 2500 years later, Alexander is still being fought
over. With the discovery of this tomb and the revelation of its relics,
the race is on to find Alexander. Rival archeologists, Egyptian
officials, and Macedonian nationalists all scurry and scramble,
attacking each other along the way as they hunt for a glorious
prize--the body of Alexander the Great.
