Teaser Tuesdays: The Third Gate

The Third GateLast week I began The Third Gate, a novel by Lincoln Child. The protagonist of the story is Jeremy Logan, a man who is able to explain the unexplainable. His services are requested at an archaeological site at which the team are searching for the tomb of the Pharaoh Narmer. The Egyptian Pharaoh had put a curse on his tomb and the team has been having some unexplained occurrences. Logan is called in to explain why – and to break the Pharoah’s curse.

My curiosity has been aroused as to why the strange events are happening – and is increased even more when Logan senses a malignant being:

“Suddenly, he stopped dead in his tracks, abruptly as if he’d encountered an invisible wall. Without warning, he’d become aware of a presence, hanging over the generator and its immediate surroundings: a foul, malignant, evil thing, ancient and implacable.” (p. 125, Anchor Books, 2012)

I am turning the pages, desiring to find out the end of the story. The story content is unusual and interesting. I am certainly enjoying this book while riding on the bus.

What are you reading this week?

      1. Sahryar’s ring by Dzevad Karahasan. It has not been translated into English. I read it in original. I am also listening to audio book of the Sun also rises – I was nostalgic and this way I can rest my eyes and enjoy the narrator’s voice 🙂

  1. I’m treading very slowly through South of the River by Blake Morrison. Political background, the Blair glory days. Taking me a while to warm to any of the characters. Not really my cup of tea but I’ve started so… 🙂

  2. Sounds intriguing Colline. I am a fan of suspense too. Haven’t had much time for books of late, but hope to settle into my old routine soon. Fingers crossed 🙂
