The Third Gate (Jeremy Logan, #3) by Lincoln Child

Into the Wild

Read The Third Gate (Jeremy Logan, #3) Online Free - Under the direction of famed explorer Porter Stone, an archaeological team is secretly attempting to locate the tomb of an ancient pharaoh who was unlike any other in history. Stone believes he has found the burial chamber of King Narmer, the near mythical god- king who united upper and lower Egypt in 3200 B.C., and the archaeologist has reason to believe that the greatest prize of all—Narmer’s crown—might be buried with him. No crown of an Egyptian king has ever been discovered, and Narmer’s is the elusive “double” crown of the two Egypts, supposedly pos­sessed of awesome powers.

The dig itself is located in one of the most forbidding places on earth—the Sudd, a nearly  impassable swamp in north­ern Sudan. Amid the nightmarish, disorienting tangle of mud and dead vegetation, a series of harrowing and inexpli­cable occurrences are causing people on the expedition to fear a centuries- old curse. With a monumental discovery in reach, Professor Jeremy Logan is brought onto the project to investigate. What he finds will raise new questions . . . and alarm.

In the hands of master storyteller Lincoln Child, The Third Gate breaks new ground and introduces a fascinating new protagonist to the thriller world.

3.5 stars This is not one of those adventures that plops you into a conspiracy or conundrum on the very first page, takes off at warp speed, and doesn't give you a moment's rest until the very last page. This is what is known as a 'slow-burner'. The plot gradually builds up, clues and hints are dr...

It's not a good sign when you can't recall the protagonist's name from a book you finished two days ago but this is, unhappily, one of those books. It's all about the supposed science-- the Egyptian tomb to end all tombs is found beneath the fetid waters of a ginormous hellishly hot swamp and a g...

Quick, fun, brainless read, but I wish Child had adapted his story to the facts, rather than changing the facts to suit his story. Egyptology is fascinating on its own; he doesn't need to have changed the historical rituals, dates, facts, and beliefs of ancient Egypt so *very* much (as he admits...

The Third Gate introduces Professor Jeremy Logan, an empathic medieval history professor who moonlights as a supernatural investigator (where does he find the time.) He is invited by Ethan Rush, a brilliant doctor a self-confessed expert in near-death experiences to look into an ancient tomb disov...

I checked this book out from the library's audiobook collection for one purpose: to keep me awake during some late night driving. It succeeded. Thank you for keeping me alive, Mr. Child. Not a dull book, to be sure, but not a terribly interesting one. The plot is predictable, the pseudoscience is...

This the unlikely tale of a high-tech yet strangely half-assed archeological expedition into the infernal Egyptian swamp called the Sudd to uncover the lost tomb of the great pharaoh Narfer, uniter of Upper and Lower Egypt. I liked to read his name as "Marklar" because I am a fan of "South Park"...

Trapped in Salt Lake City Airport this spring break on what turned out to be a 12 hour delay for my trip, I desperately scanned the limited offerings on the shelf and settled on this. Enigmalogist! Egypt! Treasure! Evil ghosts! Life after death! Preposterous, but vivid and engaging read. Best mone...

I cannot decide. I think I would rather rate this 2.5 stars. I am so disappointed by that ending I really don't know what to think of the entire novel. I, like many, am a Pendergast fan. That means I am a fan of the Lincoln Child AND Douglas Preston novels. I have enjoyed their individual works ju...

I've enjoyed other books by Lincoln Childs and was intrigued when I read the teaser on this one! A mummy's curse, talk about dying and coming back, intrigue - yeah baby! Sadly, it was blah. Total milk toast, no one was more than 2 dimensional, the swamp got more in-depth descriptions than any of...

I may have mentioned this before in discussing the Pendergast series by Preston and Child, but there's something about the atmosphere and the characters that makes me feel instantly at ease. Almost ... as if I'm at home with these people (fictional characters though they are!). Generally, I've li...
