Review by wjohnston
Another early Crichton thriller, first published under a pseudonym and recently reissued by Hard Case under Crichton's name. This one involves an archaeologist who thinks he's discovered clues to an unknown pharaoh's tomb in Egypt, and a plan to excavate and steal the treasure.And, again, it's reasonably entertaining, better than a lot of his later stuff. But he has a bad habit of building up the story and then ending with an anti-climactic twist that makes you wonder why you bothered. Again, the caper seems overly convoluted. He throws in lots of little details that are sometimes nifty and sometimes unnecessary. It's another book that's great for reading on the subway but probably not one to revisit.
Review by druidgirl
This book was written when the author was only26 years old. The storyline was about an Egyptian tomb that had never been found. The group of eclectic characters that were trying to rob it inserted some humor. This was a fun book with a strange ending.***I received this book in return for an honest review***
