(2010)
A novel by

 
 
London in the glittering twenties. Iris Barrington, the daughter of a rich American industrialist, lives a luxurious but lonely existence. Her mother is dead, her father Elmer is interested only in his art collection and his building projects. Beneath her conventional life, with its parties and its craze for all things Egyptian, she longs for escape. When Samuel Dux comes into her life, fresh from the excavation of Tutankhamen's tomb, she sees her chance. But Samuel brings with him a troubling secret, one that stems from a dark moment in Howard Carter's discovery of the Pharaoh's tomb. It is a secret that threatens his own future, and that of Iris, too.

An enthralling love story that spans the world of the 1920's, fro London's high society and its artistic life, to Howard Carter's famous excavation in the Valley of the Kings, The Weighing Of The Heart is a tale of passion, buried betrayals and devastating truths.
