24 hours. 2 people. 1 target.

It was 10 a.m. when undercover agent Amelia Jennings arrived at the law firm Goldberg & Associates for a job interview. Her mission was to investigate a series of murders involving some well-known lawyers in the City. Her target, an elusive hired killer who had been of interest to the police for months.
But her plan is doomed to fall apart before it even starts.
In less than twenty-four hours Amelia will be the prey in a man hunt and her destiny will become entwined with Mike Connor’s.
Their intentions, apparently similar, may prove to be opposite, but the affinity binding them goes beyond what they think they know about each other.


One day to survive. One day to let go of the past.

They’ve succeeded in escaping.
And are going back home.
But they aren’t alone.
Now that the adventure on Mars is over, what will become of Earth?

The final book in the science fiction series “Red Desert”.

Earth.
It’s their home, they were born and raised there, but at the same time they’ve never set foot there. And so the deep feelings that Anna and Hassan have as they return to their own planet, after almost five years, are mixed with the marvel of the foreign entity they bring with them, as it lands on a new world.
The two survivors of the Isis mission are welcomed as heroes, but they can’t enjoy the adulation. The intent they are pursuing has priority over everything else.
Besides the internal battle between the new Anna and the old, two more conflicts consume her: the one against the hidden dangers brought by Earth itself, not to mention its inhabitants, and a more complex one involving her own feelings, which will force her to make an important choice affecting her future. In the meantime, on the Red Planet, Melissa finds herself deepening her exploration of human nature, torn between dread and disdain against it, and a growing sense of belonging.
But someone, intrigued by the sudden acceleration of the whole Isis program, is beginning to have suspicions.
Now that the adventure on Mars is over, what will Anna’s choice be? What will become of Earth?

The previous books are:

Londra, 1926 d.C. 

Quando Evelyn Carnahan rivede dopo alcuni anni la sua vecchia amica d'infanzia Anne Howard, si rende subito conto di quanto sia cambiata. La ragazza perennemente annoiata e insofferente che ricordava si è trasformata in una giovane donna sicura di sé, per niente addolorata dalla recente morte del marito Robert MacElister, avvenuta in circostanze misteriose durante una campagna di scavi in Egitto. 

Inoltre, al suo ritorno a Londra dopo questo viaggio, la giovane vedova ha portato con sé, oltre che una grande quantità di reperti da esporre al British Museum, uno strano egiziano di nome Assad, indossante il tatuaggio dei Med-Jai, gli antichi guardiani di Hamunaptra, la Città dei Morti scoperta non molto tempo prima proprio da Evelyn, suo fratello Jonathan e Rick O'Connell. 

Non tutto quello che Anne ha rinvenuto ad Hamunaptra, però, è stato esposto durante la mostra. Due sono i reperti che la donna ha deciso di tenere per sé: una mummia malridotta e un libro nero che necessita di una chiave per essere aperto. 

Ma ciò che Anne e Assad non sanno è che nel loro viaggio di ritorno sono stati seguiti anche da un'oscura presenza in cerca di una vendetta vecchia di tremila anni. 

Nel tentativo di risolvere questo nuovo mistero, i fratelli Carnahan e l'americano Rick O'Connell dovranno ben presto scontrarsi con forze sovrannaturali di gran lunga al di sopra della loro portata e saranno costretti, loro malgrado, a combattere ancora una volta per salvare il mondo. 

Nel farlo, però, troveranno in un vecchio nemico un inatteso e potente alleato. 

 -- Terza edizione 2016 --

Questo romanzo, originariamente scritto pochi mesi dopo l'uscita del film "La Mummia" (del 1999), ne rappresenta un sequel alternativo rispetto a quello uscito due anni dopo. Si tratta di un'opera dedicata ai fan della saga, che contiene sia personaggi e ambientazioni completamente originali che ispirati al film e che quindi viene qui proposta a puro scopo di intrattenimento. Se avete amato "La Mummia", non potete perdere questa storia e così immaginare un nuovo destino per il Grande Sacerdote di Osiride, Imhotep, e tutti i suoi altri protagonisti.
