Award-winning and critically acclaimed author Candace

Fleming presents the edge-of-your-seat true story of the search

for Tutankhamun's tomb, the Western public's belief that the dig

was cursed, and the battle for ownership of the treasures within.

During the reign of the New Kingdom of Egypt, the boy pharaoh

Tutankhamun ruled and died tragically young. In order to send him

on his way into the afterlife, his tomb was filled with every treasure

he would need after death. And then, it was lost to time,

buried in the sands of the Valley of the Kings.

His tomb was also said to be cursed.

Centuries later, as Egypt-mania gripped Europe, two Brits -

a rich earl with a habit for gambling and a disreputable, determined

archeologist - worked for years to rediscover and open

Tutankhamun's tomb.

But once it was uncovered, would ancient powers take their revenge

for disturbing and even looting the pharaoh's resting place?

What else could explain the mysterious illnesses, accidents and

deaths that began once it was found?

With black-and-white photos throughout!
