Paul Sussman only wrote four novels before he died. I saw The Lost Army of Cambyses on a shelf in Heathrow Airport in a store I was wasting time in as I waited for a flight to the States. I was intrigued by the title and I decided to by it. The book remained in my bag and I did not read it until recently. I find it interesting and easy to read with a myriad of interesting geographical and historical facts.
Kirkus Reviews said of it “A plot as complex as a hall of mirrors, and as gripping as a death threat.”
I can fully recommend it and I am now reading his other works, The Last Secret Temple, The Hidden Oasis and The Labyrinth of Osiris.
The world lost a great talent when Paul Sussman died.
