I've enjoyed this series, for the Egyptian archeology as well as the parody of characters, but the few books before this book had begun to drag a bit.
This one tied a lot of things together. I was fascinated by the German/Turkish intrigue in Egypt and the naivete of some--but not all-- of the British; the archeology was less involved, but still there were interesting facets and the author's referring to changes in Egypt and archeology in the few years since the first book took pace. This book brought to a climax the issues dealing with "evil" characters but also left open much more for the future.
