The Egyptologist

The Egyptologist - Arthur Phillips

I read this book with a speed that would make you think I adored it, but in fact I figured out the plot twists very early on and finished it just to have my guesses confirmed. I'm not sure I would recommend this to anyone except former childhood (or current adult) egyptologists--the parts with fictional!Carter were the best of the book.
