    Dear Mr. Sussman
    My English is bad, bur I finished reading The Enigma of Cambyses and I must say that is the most interesting book I’ve read in recent years. A great adventure and a wonderful story in which I have come to feel very fact what he narrates. If it appears that way in the wilderness, I feel the wind, heat, until I herar the footsteps in the desert at night under a full moon. Well so much what I was immersed in the novel that I enjoyed from the prologue to the end.
    I live far away and unfortunately, here we have very little access to books or cultural activity. I continued to look for his books but I could not find them, I’m careful because I became his follower. Thanks for giving this time of great entertainment.

    So sorry to hear Paul is no longer with us. His books were some of the most engrossing and entertaining i have ever read. A real sad loss.

    So sorry to loose such an author. Paul Sussman, you will greatly be missed and your books will live forever. May your soul rest in peace.

    So sorry to read of Paul’s death. I had just bought and read The Labyrinth of Osiris, and today was reading the after-notes and saw the notice.

    How sad. He was a great talent.

  6. Liz says:

    Somehow I had never come across Paul’s books before I read his obituary in the paper. I don’t know why because they are exactly my kind of thing. It’s a great loss to the world of fiction. My condolences to his family.

    I am so sad to hear of the loss of Paul Sussman. I did not know of him until this morning when I logged into www,npr.org here in my local area. I immediately went to the only bookstore Barnes & Nobles and bought the two remaining copies of his books. I am looking forward to reading them however shadowed by the loss. Jacqueline S

    “I have great joy and great sadness having just finished THE LABYRINTH OF OSIRIS (ISBN 978-0802120410, hardcover, about $25.00). The great joy comes from finding an author of unbelievable talent. The great sadness comes from finding out that he died suddenly last May at age 46. Fortunately for future fans there are 4 books by Paul. ‘LABYRINTH’ was published in the U.S. late in 2012. I look forward to reading the previous three books.

    Many readers might think that they know what a labyrinth is. Throw that thought away. In this book, labyrinth refers to an ancient cave/goldmine that supplied Pharaohs with all the gold they needed for their tombs. The story of the LABYRINTH OF OSIRIS chronologically opens with the rape of a blind 20-year-old woman in 1931. Followed by the discovery of an unknown murder victim in a burial shaft in 1972. Followed in the present time by the murder of an Israeli newspaper reporter (female) in the Cathedral of St. James in the Armenian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. Ecoterrorism is another part of the story as well as a malevolent, privately owned, multibillion, multinational corporation based in Houston, TX. Which crime is the thread that Israeli police detective Arieh Ben-Roi and Egyptian police detective Yusuf Khalifa tries to unravel?

    Paul Sussman wrote a section of the book that finds one of the men trapped in a cave for nearly 24 hours without benefit of ANY light, food or water. At the climax of that chapter my heart was racing as fast as the character’s heart. My adrenaline rate was clear off the scale. Without a doubt, that scene was the most dramatic I have ever read. And I read a lot. The two detectives are real and you feel for them as their fortunes rise and fall over and over again.

    My advice is to get to your book supplier as fast as possible and read this book.

    GO! BUY! READ!”

    I am really sad that a person such as Paul Sussman left us physically but he left us four wonderful books and then he is always with us. A great writer and journalist. I send from all my heart all the sympathy for his wife Alicky and his children.

    So very sorry to belatedly learn of your husbands passing.
    Ruptured aneurism run in my family…genetic testing discovered a condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome…it is passed down the generations.
    Please speak with a doctor and have your children tested.

  12. Bill Hall says:

    So sad the passing of this brilliant author, still in his prime. However my sadness is tinged with joy, because I thought there were only three novels, but now I find there are FOUR! Paul has achieved immortality through his work. R.I.P.

  13. Dennis Milligan says:

    I will miss reading more Paul Sussman books. In light of his death, the conclusion of his last book is sadly ironic.

  14. Sherian says:

    I just bought and read *The Lost Army of Cambyses* and wanted to comment on how brilliant the book is and read he pasted away. I am so very sorry, I am going to be getting the rest of his books and will keep them, he was brilliant, I love his book and am saddened to hear of his passing. I believe we lost a great author for he wrote this book and I wish he would have had time to write a 100 more like it. Very sad to hear this, RIP, a newcomer to your wonderful books

  15. Fred Way says:

    Much belated condolences on the death of Mr Sussman. Have just finished the 3rd Inspector Khalifa novel. This was a GREAT series. Is it possible that the character will be continued by another author? I know it wouldn’t be the same, but the series is too good to disappear.

  16. I echo Fred Way.
    Given Paul Sussman’s unique interests and gifts, it would probably be impossible for anyone to continue the series. But, if there could be a way…Khalifa is just too good a character to lose! And all that wonderful Egyptology!

  17. Ed says:

    Very sorry to learn of Paul’s passing. One of my favorite authors. I always looked forward to his new book. I recommended him to all my friends. He will be missed. RIP.

  18. Virginia says:

    I have read three of Paul’s books and all of them are so cinematic! I could almost see the movie in my head. Any hope of getting them into the movies? Virginia

  19. Treana says:

    So sorry to hear about Paul
    He will be missed by that knew him
    He was one of my favourite authors His books encouraged me to take up reading again after a long spell of putting it off
    I always bought his book knowing I couldn’t put it down once I started reading
    I will like many others miss him

  20. Frank Ash says:

    Ah! There is one more joy to come from Paul. The Final Testimony of Raphael Ignatius Phoenix. The first shall be last. Although it is not set in my beloved Egypt, it still sounds delightful and I look forward to it. Paul lives on my bookshelves and I am grateful for him. I think of his family too.

  21. Dear Alicky. I just found him and alas he’s gone. An incredible loss. My deepest condolences for your loss. Like you, I’m a doc director, producer, and writer. My focus is children’s issues. My intro to Paul was The last Secret and his plot twists amazed me and taught me much. Edward Blackoff, ShazzamFilms.com
