When it comes to adventure novels, you have me at one word: Egypt. An eccentric (is there any other kind?) billionaire heads an expedition to Egypt to uncover THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL FIND OF THE MILLENNIUM. The group includes a feisty Egyptologist, a greedy and vain and famous archaeologist, a physician obsessed with near-death experiences and his survivor-of-one wife, and our hero Jeremy Logan, an enigmalogist. Who wouldn't want that job?!? His last mission had been investigating the Loch Ness Monster - no lie! Anyway, guess what? As they're doing their excavating in the deadly swamp the Sudd, they discover that there's a CURSE ON THE MUMMY'S TOMB! I wasn't even there and I could have told them that! For goodness' sake, there's always a CURSE ON THE MUMMY'S TOMB! There's a lot of unexplainable phenomena, disembodied voices, mysterious lights, and then people start dropping like flies in gruesome ways. So cool!

My oh my, I love summer when my brain takes a vacation! This was great and way better than Child's last outings with Douglas Preston. Read it and have a blast!
