Plucky young Jenny Benet, a recently orphaned American girl who was raised on the Wild West frontier and educated at a Boston finishing school, has come to Egypt in company with her uncle Neville Hawthorne, a prominent British archaeologist. They're part of a team investigating the legendary Buried Pyramid, the tomb of the pharaoh Neferankhotep -- who may also have been Moses the Lawgiver.

But they're not the only ones interested in the site. Another party, led by the opulent and treacherous Lady Audrey Cheshire, is shadowing theirs. Someone who signs himself "The Sphinx" has been sending threatening letters -- written entirely in hieroglyphics. In Egypt, an ancient and shadowy organization seems determined to keep the tomb from being discovered.

But mortals may not be all that stands in their way.

Buried Pyramid
1The ArrivalIT COULDN'T have happened at a worse time, but Neville Hawthorne knew he had no one but himself to blame. He was the one who had stopped reading his letters. He was the one who had fled from grief into obsession. Now the consequences of that obsession were coming to roost, and he still had no idea how he was going to deal with them. At least he'd opened the letter in time.Cold comfort indeed when one is standing at the dock, watching passengers file off the trans-Atlantic steamer, looking for a single young woman, not knowing if she will be recognizable.

Reviews

Praise for The Buried Pyramid

"Lindskold delivers an exotic historical fantasy that takes the reader from Victorian England to Egypt... the supernatural spookiness carries the story to a satisfying conclusion."
--Publishers Weekly on The Buried Pyramid

"The setting is impeccable, as are the characters' manners, with rich details that bring the era vividly to life. Jenny is a charming heroine, at once practical and daring, and the secondary characters comprise a worthy cast of intellectuals and eccentrics, both English and Egyptian.... A definite keeper, and a story to be savored."
--Romantic Times on The Buried Pyramid (4 1/2 stars, Top Pick)

"Some incredible fantastic encounters, marvels, even a bit of time travel.... it's spectacular."
--Locus on The Buried Pyramid

"This would make a fine movie.... The Buried Pyramid offers hot, dusty entertainment for a dreary afternoon."
--Detroit News and Free Press

"Her characters live--they're real, but they are different. And the world they live in lingers in the mind; heroic, squalid, exotic, everyday. I was convinced that it went on by itself when I turned the last page. Bravo!"
--S. M. Stirling on Through Wolf's Eyes

"I adore Jane Lindskold's writing. Her novels are a rarity for me--fat, engrossing novels that still don't seem long enough."
--Charles de Lint
