This is the novel that includes the find of the century - the tomb of King Tut. Sadly, the Emersons don't have the right to the site and can only watch from a distance. But that doesn't mean their lives are dull. There's plenty of political intrigue and relationship issues to keep them busy.

While I enjoyed the book, I felt that Peters pinned herself in too much by wanting to keep to the historical accuracy of the find and excavation of King Tut's tomb. In doing so, the book felt a bit flat. Not nearly as funny as many. But still fun.
