#Bookreview ‘The Amun Chamber’ by Daniel Leston #TuesdayBookBlog


Today I’m reviewing ‘The Amun Chamber’ by Daniel Leston

Blurb (from Amazon):

Two thousand years ago in Egypt’s exotic city of Alexandria, the single most revered treasure of the Mediterranean would inexplicably disappear from the pages of history. Believed irretrievably lost to all but legend, few dared dream the possibility that it might still exist . . .
Until now! Guided by the discovery of an ancient artefact, a determined professor of archaeology and a beautiful New England heiress join forces in the quest of a lifetime. Overcoming treachery and deadly obstacles, they follow an ever-murderous trail that eventually leads them to a barren, desert valley containing a stunning secret — one the modern world may not yet be prepared to accept.

Did I like it?

It’s not bad. An interesting story. Characters are believable, the bad ones and the good ones. Although the good ones are a bit too good and thus the bad ones a bit too bad. Interesting slip backs in time (2300 years ago).

What I didn’t like

Not enough Archaeology for my taste

Would I recommend it?

In summer I would say: a beach read, nothing more nothing less 14 out of 20 points
