About this product
- DescriptionAn ancient skeleton tossed in a garbage dump is the first conundrum to rattle Gideon Oliver when he arrives in Egypt. There to appear in a documentary film, he expects an undemanding week of movie star treatment and a luxurious cruise up the Nile with his wife, Julie. But when Gideon discovers a tantalizing secret in the discarded bones and violence claims a famous Egyptologist s life he is thrust into a spotlight of a different kind. Plying his calipers as the world s foremost forensic anthropologist, Gideon s investigation of the goings on leads him through the back alleys and bazaars of Cairo and deep into the millennia old tombs of the Valley of the Kings.As the puzzle is painstakingly pieced together, Gideon will find that the identifying traits of a cunning killer are the same w as they were in the time of the pyramids: greed without guilt, lies without conscience . . . and murder without remorse.
