Although the subject can be dry, Mertz does a very nice job of injecting humor, folklore, and her own interesting opinions. I'm on my way to Egypt and glad I listened to this first. The narrator is quite good.
The story wasn't bad, but the narration was all "he said', "the pilot said", "the driver said", etc. It seriously disrupted the story for me. Different voices would have helped a bunch.
Love Cussler, don't particularly love his ghost writers.
An easy read, but not up to standards that Smith sets in some of his later works.
