Waiting on Wednesday: Pyramid: A Novel by David Gibbins

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Pyramid: A Novel by David Gibbins 
Expected publication: November 6th 2014 by Headline

Perfect for fans of Clive Cussler and Dan Brown, Pyramid is a thrilling new adventure starring fearless marine archaeologist Jack Howard, in a heart-stopping quest to uncover an ancient Egyptian secret—and make the most amazing discovery of our time.


For thousands of years, Egypt was a rich, ingenious civilization. Then it became a fertile hunting ground for archaeologists and explorers. Now the streets of Cairo teem with violence as a political awakening shakes the region. In the face of overwhelming danger, Jack Howard and his team of marine archaeologists have gathered pieces of a fantastic puzzle. But putting it together may cost them their lives.

Howard has connected a mystery hidden inside a great pyramid to a fossilized discovery in the Red Sea and a 150-year-old handwritten report of a man who claims to have escaped a labyrinth beneath Cairo. For that his team is stalked by a brutal extremist organization that will destroy any treasure they find.

As people fight and die for their rights aboveground, Jack fights for a discovery that will shed an astounding new light on the greatest story ever told: Moses’s exodus from Egypt and the true beginnings of a new chapter in human history.

Due to be released this November in the UK, but not until January in Canada and March in the US, this is a title I've been anxiously awaiting . . . even if it just seems I'll be waiting a little longer now.

  2. I wonder why such a lag time between release dates?

    1. Odd, isn't it? I'm hoping for an UK ARC to save the wait. :)

  3. That's a new to me one! Not sure it's my kind of read but still hope you enjoy it once you read it!

  4. It's gotta have something to do with the different publishers in the US and UK, there are books that are pubbed first in the UK that I have to wait several months for in the US.

    At least this one has a US release date, there are a couple books out in the UK now that so far has no hint of a release date on this side of the Atlantic :\
