"For years, in several mysteries by Elizabeth Peters, Amelia Peabody and husband Radcliffe Emerson have been excavating in Egypt with the highest integrity and many exciting, dangerous exploits. In Tomb of the Golden Bird, the latest in the series, they have reached 1922 and the discovery of King Tut's tomb. They don't discover or excavate it - after all, they are fictional. They have to work in another part of the valley. But the reader can rely on Peters' scholarship to learn how it was done and how it looked."
