We were saddened to learn of the recent and sudden death at 45 of acclaimed author, journalist and archeologist Paul Sussman, whose books have been called 'the intelligent reader's answer to The Da Vinci Code.'
He was educated at Cambridge and began his professional writing career with The Big Issue magazine. This evolved into a successful career as a freelance journalist. He also worked as a field archaeologist in Egypt for many years in the Valley of the Kings. Among other finds, he unearthed the only items of pharaonic jewellery to have been excavated in the Valley since the discovery of Tutankhamun in 1922.
His bestselling novels mix the modern-day police procedural with archaeological mysteries, have sold over two million copies and been translated into thirty-three languages.
Paul Sussman is survived by his wife and two young sons.
