Reviews

Colourful and fast-paced, this chunky but highly readable novel offers plenty of intrigue and an interesting portrait of the adult world, as seen through a child's enquiring eyes. The Lady The settings are glamorous and mysterious, the woman who dies in strange, unexplained circumstances is morally dubious and very beautiful, and there are real-life characters, such as Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon, searching for Tutankhamun's tomb, to add extra spice Independent on Sunday A vivid portrait of Howard Carter emerges from this fictionalised story of his quest to uncover the tomb of the boy-king ... Set in Egypt in the 1920s and London in the present day, this hugely readable novel tells the story of Carter's long years of toil in the Valley of the Kings through the eyes of a 10-year-old English girl ... And above it all floats the gold deathmask of King Tut himself, endlessly touring the world's museums Guardian English novelist Beauman beautifully describes the languorous lifestyles of Brits and Americans wealthy enough to indulge their passion for unearthing Egypt's ancient treasures Courier Mail, Brisbane Read every line of this stupendous novel Country Style, Australia
