Cleopatra's Needle - Paperback

2000, ISBN: 9780812570717

Hardcover, ID: 265934716

Tor Books. Mass Market Paperback. 0812570715 0812570715 Amazon Review Steven Siebert, a screenwriter and comic book artist, combines the speed and flair of both crafts in his lively debut thriller, Cleopatra's Needle. He tells the story of a search for an ancient Egyptian cross, or ankh, that has incredible, mythical powers. This particular relic has been split in half somewhere in the distant past. The half that should be at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is stolen from a curator murdered at the foot of an ancient obelisk (Cleopatra's Needle) in Central Park. The other half has been snatched, at least temporarily, from a top Syrian terrorist named Salameh by a female Israeli intelligence agent. Putting the two halves together, Salameh believes, could result in raising the spirit of the Egyptian Pharaoh Osiris--and boost Salameh's plan for world domination. Siebert has the energy and skill to rise above the possible foolishness of his material and produce a book full of action and adventure. He tosses in ancient legend and high-tech reanimation to explain how the ankh works. "What I'm saying is, if the idea of the soul is created in an electrochemical mind, after death it is released as pure energy that's given form by the person's own belief system," says Dan Rawlins, the noted archaeologist involved in the search. Forget all the obvious jokes about "Raiders of the Lost Ankh" or "Ankhs for the Memory," Cleopatra's Needle is serious business. --Dick Adler --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From Publishers Weekly Archeology is a more dangerous occupation than ever in Siebert's sprawling first novel. Dan Rawlins, a leading archeologist at New York's Metropolitan Museum, is as famous for his lusty appetites as for his expertise in Egyptology. Approached by Liam McMay, ostensibly a wheeler-dealer from Sotheby's, he becomes involved in a frantic chase for an ancient Egyptian ankh. Unbeknownst to Rawlin, McMay is actually a transmogrified spirit who can also assume the shape of a huge, murderous bird. He possesses half the ankh and has tracked the other half to Rawlin's collection in the museum's storage area. The boxes belong to Rawlin's father, a leading biblical scholar, and his mother, an authority on the prehistory of the Nile Valley. The day after Rawlins sends his assistant to retrieve the broken relic, she is found dead at the base of Cleopatra's Needle, an obelisk in Central Park. Meanwhile, in Cairo, Mossad agent Jacinda el-Bahri has managed to steal the other half of the ankh from a terrorist linked to McMay. Flashing back to ancient Egypt, the narrative discloses how the ankh came to be split, and then the action returns to the present as good and evil forces struggle to unite the ankh and unleash its otherworldly power to bring the dead to life. Siebert employs half-human creatures, ghosts, goddesses, secret societies and the vividly feuding Rawlins family to enact this violent and intrigue-packed thriller, but the plot is strained with unpersuasive twists. When Rawlins and Jacinda, along with Israeli Colonel Avram Haveli, fight for the ankh during a solar eclipse, hoping to prevent the end of civilization, Siebert's rich historical scenes and taut dialogue become smothered in the over-the-top apocalypse.
