I've read the first two books in the series Murder in the Palace and The Tomb Robbers and thought they were excellent. This book 'blew me away'. The story is 'right in your face' from the first page, and the fast pace doesn't relent until the last page. The 'old crew' of Nikolas' investigators are joined by new members with special expertise required to solve the unusual clues hidden within the plot. I couldn't put the book down, as I wanted to know what came next as Nikolas and the Egyptian Royal Family suffer a series of hammer-blows which I won't disclose, as that would spoil the story. Suffice to say that Campbell has his usual unexpected denouement, both with Nikolas' final report to Ramesses and the subsequent events. If you are a fan of the historical murder/mystery genre you HAVE to read this! George
