The Pharaoh’s Stone

The Pharaoh’s Stone

Peter, trying to flee his burden of shame, meets a professor from the British Museum. Their world is shattered by a murder. Together, with Beth, the professor’s assistant, they must solve ancient archaeological mysteries, and survive the shadowy world of Freemasony.

This modern fictional tale is grounded in some extraordinary historical events of the 18th century. The action takes place in London’s docks, Paris, New York, and in the ancient temple of Luxor in Egypt.

Upon his release from one of England’s most fearsome prisons, Peter wanders aimlessly down to London’s docks. Through an act of kindness, his life becomes entangled with that of a history professor, Alex, who is grieving the death of his brother in suspicious circumstances. 

Investigations into the death lead them into the secret world of Freemasonry and its passion for collecting ancient Egyptian artefacts. Alex calls on Beth, an expert in Egyptian hieroglyphics, for her specialist help. 

From London to Paris, New York, and the ancient temples of Egypt—the three of them band together to uncover the clues. As they get closer to solving the mystery of the murder, death stalks their every move. To survive, Peter must discover qualities about himself he never knew he possessed… and counter the audacious plot of a secretive organisation to grasp at international power.
