The New York Museum of Natural History receives their pilfered gem collection back, ground down to dust. Diogenes, the psychotic killer who stole them in Dance of Death, is throwing down the gauntlet to both the city and to his brother, FBI Agent Pendergast, who is currently incarcerated in a maximum security prison.

To quell the PR nightmare of the gem fiasco, the museum decides to reopen the Tomb of Senef. An astounding Egyptian temple, it was a popular museum exhibit until the 1930s, when it was quietly closed. But when the tomb is unsealed in preparation for its gala reopening, the killings, and whispers of an ancient curse, begin again. And the catastrophic opening itself sets the stage for the final battle between the two brothers: an epic clash from which only one will emerge alive.

    " Like other Preston-Child books, elements of the historical and spiritual realms added a uniqueness to the plot. A well-written, interesting read. "

    " Agent Pendergast has to get out of prison to stop his brother from following through on his plan to scare a lot of people to death. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by John Porter | 1/24/2014

    " Haven't read the others in the series, but this book suffers from a crucial (and, sadly, typical) problem...the Diabolically Clever Antagonist who turns out to be Dumb as F***. Why go to the trouble of setting up a satisfyingly evil character to turn him/her/it into an idiotic hack in the final 50 pages? First three quarters of the book--3.5 to 4 stars. Last 75 pages--1.5 to 2 stars. Three stars averages that out, but it feels a lot more disappointing. "
