Carter was a much maligned man and his contribution to history has gone rather unnoticed in this modern world but this book had me wanting more and has re-awakened my love for Egypt.
A good read , a good story, a brilliant book
Be warned, there's no way you won't want to read the next book in the series!
Although the standard of English is better than many books one buys these days, and it has clearly been proof read and corrected rather than just spell checked, I found the story telling pedestrian, taking pages to progress the plot where other writers would take a few paragraphs. Also it ended just when it was getting properly interesting and I came to the conclusion that this is because it has been published as a lead-in to get you to buy the next book in the series, which presumably finishes the story begun here. I guess the pricing at just 99p should have given me the clue. Had the whole of this story been published as a single volume at a higher price I would likely have bought more of the authors works, but as it is I'm just disappointed enough that I won't make further investment.
I've been on a tourist vacation visiting the sites in and around Cairo and along the Nile and recognised various places mentioned. However, the additional insights which the author provides were a joy and showed the research and level of interest sparked by the subject matter. The detailed information never seemed to deter from the pace demanded by the storyline.
The style was engaging and down to earth with occasional poetic touches: "hills riddled with holes like a mountainous Swiss cheese made of mellow gold rock". It also described the lives of the ordinary people against the background of current events in Egypt as it goes through its post-revolutionary days providing a `behind the scenes' look beyond the tourist attractions. There is an acknowledgment to the spirit of Indiana Jones and Lara Croft, not a bad comparison. Could be a call to Hollywood for this feminine version!
The main character, Meredith, does lurch from crisis to crisis and enjoys all the attributes of the romantic heroine.
Read it. It will enhance your holiday, and, if you're not planning on visiting Egypt, you'll wish you were.

Couldn't put it down, pace, suspense, anticipation throughout. Excellent mix of modern and ancient Egypt. Now reading Book 2 of the trilogy - immediately hooked.Published on 16 April 2015 by c a thompson
The first book I read and immediately had to buy the whole series (ideally need to be read in order as the story tends to follow through the series). Read morePublished on 10 April 2015 by J. Richland
