Steven Barclay does a good job in this book writing an exciting plot. The descriptions of Egypt and Egyptologists was done very well. The plot is well paced and I enjoyed the characters written in the book very much. Barclay does a good job of making an intelligent protagonist in the story. His villains are fun also. There were times when I could not put the book down because I wanted to know what would happen next. I enjoyed how the main character got out of tricky situations. I enjoyed some of the minor characters as much as the main character.

The one thing I did not enjoy as much was the mystery. When I was 80% through the book, I still had no idea what was going on. I did not understand even who the main character was or why he had gone to Egypt at all. Even at the very end I was still not completely sure. Despite this the book was still an enjoyable read. I'd read future books by Barclay.
