To quell the PR nightmare of the gem fiasco, the museum decides to reopen the Tomb of Senef. An astounding Egyptian temple, it was a popular museum exhibit until the 1930s, when it was quietly closed. But when the tomb is unsealed in preparation for its gala reopening, the killings, and whispers of an ancient curse, begin again. And the catastrophic opening itself sets the stage for the final battle between the two brothers: an epic clash from which only one will emerge alive.

"Another gripping, action-packed page-turner...with a tantalizing, ominous twist at the end." (Publishers Weekly)
I was introduced to the author by reading The Relic and then the Reliquary. I liked the story line that included the museum mystery but the other stories that dealt with Pend. being in jail was distracting.
This book was an appropriate ending for the Pendergast saga (at least to date). In their usual way, the authors tease and tantalize the reader at every turn. Hopefully, in spite of each author striking out on their own, they will continue to collaborate.
I love these books by Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston. They keep me on the edge of my seat. The writing is terrific and I find it hard to put it down. The narration is very good also. I just love thrillers
Very poor character development.
Story is just entertaining enough to keep me listening.
Narration is good.
I can’t believe it’s a bestseller.
If weak poorly developed characters and lame plots suite your taste then this is the book for you.
For fans of Pendergast/History Museum of New York/Vincent Degosta, left hanging at the end of the last novel, this is the fantastic sequel. The story does not disappoint on any level, character development, plot twists, outcome... Stop reading this and download!!:)
It's nice to finally know more about Pendergast. He is one of the most fascinating characters in modern fiction. The narrator did an excellent job of giving each character his/her own voice. Well done!
I was waiting for this sequel and I wasn't disappointed. From start to finish it kept my attention and the ending gave me an assurance that another sequel is in the works! Great writing by the authors and the narration was enjoyable.
