An education work on the funeral practice of the ancient Egyptians. It serves as a study on religious mummification outlining the steps and procedures.
This is my favorite Anne Rice book. I've read it a number of times when I want to "check out" with a sure thing.
Perhaps a little outdated, but a good read.
