Written just like one of the old black and white Mummy movies from the 40's. I love it - great mystery with a bit of the supernatural thrown in.

Ancient Egypt, endlessly fascinating and a passion of archelogists since the finding of the first tomb in the late 1800's to the present day. I found this book rather simplistic and juvenile. I think I would rate it as a "young adult book." The characters were cardboard with the exception of the narrator and you did get to see inside his thoughts somewhat. The mystery/murder was rather basic, you had the obligatory secret love affair that was thrown in at the last and within another paragraph was explained away. I gave it 2 stars only because it did give some description of tomb paintings, but really not much else. If you like a good juicy archelogical mystery, don't bother.
