Author - Paul Sussman dies age 45

Post by Kevininabydos »

Paul Sussman died suddenly in May 2012 at the age of 45.
He is survived by a wife and two young sons.


Paul wrote 4 novels, detective style thrillers all with an Egyptian theme:
The lost army of Cambyses, The secrets of the Temple, The hidden oasis and The Labyrinth of Osiris; which he finished just before he died. (All published by Bantam Books)

I read his first three books with great enjoyment and have just purchased his last novel, which I am about to read.
I would recommend his books to anyone with an interest in things "Egypt" or if you just want a book to get lost in for a while.

Read the last three of these books and loved them. Shame there will be no more.
You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave ............

Currently reading the Labrynth of Osiris and loving it. What a tragedy.

I have the first three and thoroughly enjoyed them. I will look out for the last one. So sad that such a talented author should die so young.
