Description

Digging up a buried past could lead to a premature death, for there is a dangerous secret that is centuries old-as old as the treasure of Nefertiti.

Althea Tomlinson comes back to Egypt as just another tourist, showing the country to a spoiled seventeen-year-old. That's what she tells herself, anyway. The truth is more complex-and dangerous. Ten years ago, something that happened in this desert land brought about her father's ruin and subsequent death-and Althea intends to clear her disgraced parent's name and finally lay a dark past to rest. But there are some mysteries best left buried in the shifting sands, and a devoted daughter's search for answers is stirring up forgotten memories almost too painful to endure that propel her onward among ancient tombs, legendary treasures, miraculous discoveries-and ever-closer to her own threatened doom.

Ten years ago, something that happened here brought about her father's ruin and subsequent death-and Althea intends to clear her disgraced parent's name and finally lay a dark past to rest. But there are some mysteries best left buried in the shifting sands, and a devoted daughter's search for answers is stirring up forgotten memories almost too painful to endure, that propel her onward among ancient tombs, legendary treasures, miraculous discoveries . . . and ever-closer to her own threatened doom.
