    *Starred Review* When a novel opens with a boy using a human thigh bone to dig his way out from being buried alive in a sand-filled tunnel, readers get an idea of the dark, creative thrills to come. Every summer, 13-year-old Sam Force has traveled to Egypt to assist his uncle Jasper with research on mummies, tombs, and ancient treasures. This summer, however, when he steps off the plane, he is rushed into police custody and told that his uncle stole money from the government and disappeared. Sam sets off through the deserts, sewers, and cities of Egypt on a self-guided mission to discover who framed his uncle and why. What he finds instead is the first in a series of cleverly hidden clues that suggest that his uncle was onto something massive. Now everyone—police, government officials, locals, hired assassins—wants the information Sam has begun to uncover. The chase is on, and there is no telling who to trust. This first entry in the Pyramid Hunters series is pure adrenaline, punctuated with excellent character work and truly harrowing moments. The plot turns are continuously surprising and endlessly complex, and Vegas clearly trusts the intelligence of his readers. Expect to bite off every single nail. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
