About this title

Synopsis:

An intrepid Howard Carter struggles against the rigors of the desert and the intransigence of Egypt's Department of Antiquities while searching in the Valley of the Kings for a hidden tomb, in a fictional account of the discovery of Tutankhamen's long-lost tomb. 30,000 first printing."

From the Publisher:

"[Valley of the Kings] is a must for Holland fans, and solid fare for everyone else." --Publishers Weekly

"Cecelia Holland moves through history like a sorceress with a time machine." --Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Cecelia Holland's novel VALLEY OF THE KINGS deftly re-creates the Egypt of Howard Carter in the early twentieth century as that single-minded archeologist searches for the tomb of King Tutankhamun. . . . With Carter as her narrator, Holland describes the heat, dust, thievery, and bureaucracy of the time. Her evocative prose is vivid and exotic, allowing the reader to hear the buzz of tropical flies and feel as sweat-soaked as her characters." --The Cleveland Plain Dealer
