Inquest on Imhotep - Beyond the White Walls (book)
The search for Imhoteps grave in this action thriller by Derek Adie Flower
A five thousand year old tomb, the gods of Ancient Egypt, unexplained deaths, secret societies and a love story which transcends time are some of the ingredients in this rich mix of occultism, archaeology, romance and international power … see full wiki
I really enjoyed the first half of this book. An archeologist makes a discovery of a possible tomb of the famous Egyptian architect Imhotep and both he and his reporter friend both die mysteriously. The owner of the property where the dig was occurring gets suspicious, especially when the same doctor is assigned the coroner.
Behind everything is a ancient religious sect that doesn't want the tomb presented to the world. They very efficiently disposed of the first two men but do virtually nothing to the property owner. The owner meets a woman who he falls in love with at first sight and ends up marrying. He brings her into the mystery. She brings in her brother to clandentinely try to unearth the tomb.
The book then starts to deteriorate as the sect tries to get the land from the owner and the author bombards us with unnecessary facts and history of Imhotep and the sect's time. He seemed to think that he could cram everything he knows about ancient Egypt into a "thriller" would work but it just makes the book go downhill about halfway through.
