The Bone Vault
A NovelBook - 2003
The Bone Vault begins in the Metropolitan Museum of Art's glorious Temple of Dendur, where wealthy donores have gathered to celebrate a controversial new exhibit. A twelfth Dynasty mummified princess, enclosed for eternity in a huge stone sarcophagus, is about to take a long voyage to Cairo as part of a routine museum exchange. But Cleopatra is missing, and in her place is the not-so-mummified body of a woman many centuries younger than her royal predecessor.
