The Lost Codex is the story of danger, love, betrayal and choice. The Da Vinci Code meets The English Patient in this thrilling new novel by Oregon author, Kyla Merwin. Discover the well-kept secrets of early Christianity as three daring friends search the remote and mysterious landscapes of 1947 Egypt–unveiling the most controversial archaeological discovery in 2,000 years. In their search for the lost Gnostic Gospels, the intrepid adventurers confront religious zealots charged with destroying the manuscripts, a clan of feuding tribesmen bent on blood revenge, a conniving billionaire demanding the promised secrets of endless power, an obsessed agent of the Egyptian government, and their own deepest fears.
For anyone who has ever felt stuck in their lives, or wonders if there isn’t more to who they think they are, Lost & Found in Egypt is a must-read. With more dumb guts than preparation, a middle-aged woman with a desk job decides to take a solo journey to the Middle East on the Get-There-and-Wing-it Plan. In a voice both raw and illuminating, Kyla Merwin explores the back roads, bustling bazaars, and shifting sands of Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula.
