Elizabeth Peters: The Jackal's Head (USA 2012)
From the Publisher:
Althea Tomlinson's ostensible reason for returning to Egypt is to chaperone a spoiled teenager through this fabulous desert land. The truth is more complex... and dangerous. Ten years ago, something that happened here brought about her father's ruin and subsequent death -- and Althea intends to clear her disgraced parent's name and finally lay a dark past to rest. But there are some mysteries best left buried in the shifting sands, and a devoted daughter's search for answers is stirring up forgotten memories almost too painful to endure, that propel her onward among ancient tombs, legendary treasures, miraculous discoveries... and ever-closer to her own threatened doom.
