Reviews

A great big beast of a saga with plenty of costume drama, celebrities, glamorous locations, spooks and murders. It's Death on the Nile meets Downton Abbey, as the action moves between Highclere Castle and Egypt's Valley of the Kings . . . A gripping story touching on friendship, scholarship, love and family - Daily MailA beautifully written novel, a tale of intertwined lives that is at once powerful and haunting. Beauman maintains the tension surrounding the tomb's discovery, even for those who know the outcome and...the story of Lucy's blossoming into adulthood is lingeringly affecting - Sunday TimesSet in Egypt in the 1920s and London in the present day, this hugely readable novel tells the story of Carter's long years of toil in the Valley of the Kings through the eyes of a 10-year-old English girl . . . And above it all floats the gold deathmask of King Tut himself, endlessly touring the world's museums - GuardianFusing historical fact with dollops of fiction, The Visitors is an engrossing epic that wears its research lightly . . . The powerful backdrop of the curse of Tutankhamun adds a dark dimension of historical intrigue to a page-turning tale - MetroThis book contains all the traditional elements of a women's blockbuster: a Cinderella-style, love-deprived heroine; a beautiful, promiscuous woman with neglected but adoring children; an exotic setting as well as plenty of travel, and a certain amount of mystery. But Sally Beauman is far too skilful to follow a formula...Interesting, unusual and informative, it is greatly enjoyable - Literary Review
