: 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.
