Reviewer Lauds Author's Debut Thriller

Title: The Gizeh Scrolls
Author: Charles Yockelson
Author's Web-site Link:
Genre: Mystery/Thriller
ISBN: 9781475173451
Reviewed by Eve Anderson originally for Amazon
Reviewer's Rating: 5 stars
Charles Yockelson has produced an excellently crafted storyline of international intrigue mixed with historic content. I was not expecting such a page turner plot and, once started, I could not stop reading the book. His descriptions of historic landmarks in many countries are so well constructed that you feel as if you are walking alongside the book's characters and experiencing the same breezes and seeing the same views as they.

The book was obviously very well researched and the author intertwined fact and fiction so well that the telling of the story could easily be mistaken for nonfiction instead of a novel.

It is hard to believe this is Yockelson's first book. I sincerely hope there are more to come.
