Love the authentic Egyptian settings but the time frame is modern, and the author because of her attention to details is always a good read. The San Francisco Chronical says, " Elizabeth Peters is truely great." Note: not part of the Amelia Peabody series, which are also set in Egypt.
Although not her strongest offering, anything by Peters is a great read!
superb mystery /thriller set in egypt.
Not bad. If you've discovered EP/BM and want to read everything she's written, add this to your list. But it's not one of her best.
Althea Tomlinson says she has returned to Egypt to see the sights, and to chaperon a spoiled teenager through this strange and breathtaking desert land. The truth is more complex...and dangerous. Ten years ago, something here brought about her father's ruin and subsequent death -- and Althea intends to clear her disgraced parent's name and lay a dark past finally to rest. But there are some mysteries best left buried in the shifting sands. And a devoted daughter's search for answers is stirring up forgotten memories almost too painful to endure, and propelling her onward toward ancient tombs, legendary treasures, miraculous discoveries...and ever-closer to her own probable doom.
