Thomas Hoving's skilled narrative transports us back to the discovery and opening of Tutankhamun's tomb.

Moreover, as the disposition of those artifacts is decided, we are party to the complex angling and interrelationships among the key players in that fascinating drama.

This is a book to bring along on your next vacation. - A great reading adventure, and a fine historical reference!
