The latest in this fantastic series and if you haven’t read the earlier novels it is advisable to go back and start at the beginning as there are lots of characters popping up from the previous books. In this story we find the characters at the Valley of the Kings where Lord Carnavon and Howard Carter are getting closer to their goal, while Emerson is pushed further away. Witty, fun and terribly English this is a great addition to a brilliant series.
