The Secret of the King’s Tomb:A deep secret that only one man knew … until the whole world found out.
Richard Halliburton, the world famous travel writer and explorer in the early 1920s and 30s, embarked on a journey to explore the world. But he found much more than he ever imagined—and far more than he ever told.
Following the end of World War I, the German Reichswehr set out on an ambitious—and unconventional—expedition to rebuild the military’s war chest beyond the auspices of the restrictive Treaty of Versailles. But when U.S. Army intelligence got wind of what the Reichswehr was doing, action was required. And Richard Halliburton was the man drafted into service.
Join Halliburton on this pulse-pounding adventure in his race to stop the Germans from uncovering one of the greatest artifacts—and secrets—in Egyptian history.

Back to England with you,” Richard said as he watched Wesley Jr. twisting and turning to escape.
Richard grinned, admiring his stealthy move for a moment longer than he should have.
“Never, you traitor!” Wesley Jr. said.
Wesley Jr. spun around and kicked his legs out, catching Richard in the back of his knees and toppling him. Richard fell down, crashing face first into the moist Tennessee earth amidst a sea of leaves. In a deft move, Wesley Jr. pounced on top of Richard, securing him with a bear hug. The two boys tumbled down the hill, coming to a stop just a few feet short of the water.
Richard broke free from his brother’s grasp and took up a new position behind him. With Wesley Jr.’s face pressed flat against the dirt, he struggled, thrashing his arms and legs in an attempt to buck Richard off. But after several failed attempts to shred Richard, the fight left Wesley Jr.
“I’m not falling for it again,” Richard said.
Wesley Jr. grunted. “I’m not trying to trick you. I promise. I see something.”
“You see something?” Richard asked. “I don’t care what it is. I’m not letting you get up until you surrender.”
“I see an arrowhead,” Wesley Jr. said.
“Where?” Richard said as he stood, hoping to be the first to put his hands on it.
Wesley Jr. darted toward the water and scooped up the artifact before Richard could snatch it.”
