When a renowned historian is found dead in a cave in the Sahara, his former student Ryan Harper vows to find out what happened. Rumour suggests he’d uncovered a priceless religious text, obsessively hidden for centuries by a network of holy men.
Brought to light...

Will shake the world.

Pursued across Egypt by those who would use its secrets to devastating effect, Ryan draws ever closer to an unspeakable truth. A truth that will expose the most shocking deceit the world has ever known….
A good book with plenty of twists and turns in the plot. Dies a bit when talking about Crowley but all in all, worth every penny.
Would you try another book written by Tom Knox or narrated by Nick Taylor?
Possibly, but it wouldn't be my first choice.
Who was your favorite character and why?
To be honest, the main characters are fine but nothing standout.
Which character – as performed by Nick Taylor – was your favourite?
Nick Taylor read it well but no one particular favourite.
Did The Deceit inspire you to do anything?
Not particularly I'm afraid.
Any additional comments?
Its OK but it isn't anything special.
