# 40 Tomb of the Golden Bird

Tomb of the Golden Bird

Elizabeth Peters

This Amelia Peabody adventure centers on Howard Carter's discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922.

Of course, the Emerson family gets caught up not only in the excitement of the discovery, but in fighting crime and all kinds of intrigue as well.

This was a very satisfying addition to the series.

I simultaneously read Carter's own account of the tomb's discovery. which made this book even more fun and interesting.
