Publisher's Summary

The New York Museum of Natural History receives their pilfered gem collection back, ground down to dust. Diogenes, the psychotic killer who stole them in Dance of Death, is throwing down the gauntlet to both the city and to his brother, FBI Agent Pendergast, who is currently incarcerated in a maximum security prison. 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.

Not The Best

This title was actually a bit hard for me to get through and I had the un-abridged version. It became a "fill in" until the last two hours which were exciting but the beginning I found to be pretty dull. I probably would have thought even less had the reader not done his usual outstanding work. I have listened to all off the books in this series and will continue to do so. I was not unhappy iwth this title, just a bit disappointed.

Dying

The final book in the battle of the genius brothers, this book begins to fall into a formulaic pattern that repeats themes form earlier books. I'm a big fan of the authors but this just seems like a touch too much of the same thing.
