The results are stunning. They show Tiye, previously a footnote in history, to have been the power behind the thrones of her husband and sons, as well as the architect of a monotheistic religion unique in ancient Egypt. Riveted by these revelations, Rika and David devise a covert plan to locate Tiye's tomb. But Major Hassam of the Egyptian Secret Police misreads their activities as a plot to overthrow the government and vows to stop them at all costs.
Reared in revolution, Rika feels a spiritual bond with Tiye, an African commoner who revolutionized Egyptian society by introducing a religion that freed Egypt from the tyranny of the Amun priests. Rika's quest to find Tiye's tomb parallels the queen's last journey up the Nile, 3000 years before, to be buried alive in a tomb like no other.

Should Come With a Warning Label - Animal Abuse
This book showed promise in the first few chapters, with an interesting premise and plot. However, several chapters in, I was completely unprepared by a scene of such horrific animal abuse that I felt physically sick. It is an image that will not leave my mind, and probably won't for a very long time. I had to stop listening.
With respect to the narrator, while she does a good job with voices and inflection, her over-enunciation of each individual syllable makes the narration choppy and tiring to listen to for any sustained period.
Unfortunately, there were too many downsides to this book for me.
