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.

"Another gripping, action-packed page-turner...with a tantalizing, ominous twist at the end." (Publishers Weekly)

A satisfying story.

It is good to listen to The Book of the Dead on the heels of Dance of Death, as the story picks up very closely after and with the same cast. The Book of the Dead doesn't disappoint, revealing secrets of the past and delving into the characters exquisitely.

Brilliant

I have been a fan of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child’s for a number of yrs. I have most of their books, but just lately I have started to listen to their audio books. Here is where I have a complaint, although the narrators are great I am actually appalled at the mispronounced words and reparation of sentences. With the mispronounced of words I hear myself correcting the narrator. It’s quite frustrating. One wonders if these audio files are actually edited. It certainly would be a good idea.

Narrator

This narrator is The best I've heard his accents are so good and he doesn't make women's voices sound like drag
