The Pharaoh Key by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child Book Summary
Don't miss the this exciting, New York Times bestselling adventure from Preston & Child, in which the secrets of a mysterious ancient tablet may point the way to untold treasure--or unspeakable danger.
"I just want to be crystal clear about this: if it has value, we're gonna steal it. Are you with me?"Effective Engineering Solutions has been inexplicably shut down and the head of the company, Eli Glinn, has all but vanished. Fresh off a diagnosis that gives him only months to live, Gideon Crew is contacted by one of his coworkers at EES, Manuel Garza, who tells him the two have mere hours to collect their belongings before the office closes forever. After years of dedicated service and several high-risk missions, theirs seems like the most ignoble of terminations-until Gideon and Garza happen upon an incredible discovery.After centuries of silence, a code-breaking machine at EES has cracked the long-awaited translation of a centuries-old stone tablet, the Phaistos Disc, that dates back to an otherwise completely unknown, ancient civilization. The mysteries of the message itself hint at incredible treasures, and perhaps even a world-altering secret. No one remains at EES to take on this most remarkable mission but Gideon and Garza. The two agree to solve the mystery of the disc's message and split the spoils: the perfect parting gift their employer doesn't know he has given.What lies at the end of the trail may save Gideon's life-or bring it to a sudden, shocking close. As Gideon and Garza soon discover, some missions are more dangerous than others. But as Gideon has proved again and again, there's no such thing as too great a risk when you're living on borrowed time.
The Pharaoh Key (Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child) Book Reviews
Shallow read.Slightly disappointed, the story lacked any real intrigue. Gideon’s character was more of an observer of events, rather than an active participant..Benard1953Score: 3/5

Luv the authors but...Luv the authors books but this one was very slow paced and not all that exciting..Glenart2kScore: 2/5
Comic Book PablumHow disappointing to see these talented authors, or their proxies, produce such nonsensical foolishness. Words fail me..Dgb65Score: 1/5
Absolute drivelThe first few books of this series held my interest but I’m stopping as of this book. Childish and moronic..IvyplusScore: 1/5
Terrible ReadI had reasonable expectations for this book, but implausibility built upon implausibility. An Army Ranger who can’t swim? Huh? Army Rangers have to pass a swim competency test. Stealing jewels from a cave with no plan for escape? What? These characters were supposed to be experienced and they came off as the Three Stooges. The ending was as implausible as the rest of the book. This was my first and last book by these two guys..BvrClvrScore: 1/5
Surprisingly badIt’s sad to see people who normally do good work put out garbage. It’s like they quit trying after the first 20 pages and just tried to end it as soon as possible. The story was painfully boring and required effort to slog through. Dialogue was forced and contrived. Written at the 8th grade reading level or below..DrMatchyScore: 1/5
Waste of time....I am generally a fan of these writers, but they missed the boat on this one. Slow and not even remotely believable. Hope they get back to form on their next effort..OjaijimScore: 2/5

B O R I N GThe worst effort from what has been to this point two very fine thriller writers. I would swear it was written by someone else under their name for a Young Adult audience. Contrived and choppy with characters that are completely unlike able. The ending is just crap. I won’t spoil it but there is no payoff at the end. I wish I could get my money and time back..MarkWhiteLotusScore: 1/5

DisappointedI have read all of the authors previous works and loved them. This book never hit fourth gear..Bluewaterblondie63Score: 2/5
Suspending Reality ChecksThe book moves along well and the characters are likable. The premise and methodology of solving the Phaistos Disk were plausible. The story held my interest, and I finished the book, but I had hold my nose to swallow quite a bit. It's Preston and Child's society that has supposedly been isolated from the rest of mankind for 3000 years that I found difficult to accept. I was disappointed that it seems very little thought and research about what a completely isolated society would look and feel like was done. Things like inbreeding and it's diseases, the need for an artisan group providing the clothing and finery described, the thought that any animals to hunt would be available with such a limited area. I felt I had to close off a lot of lines of thought to continue reading..UxwxiksScore: 3/5
