“Adams juxtaposes Davis’s biography with his archaeological achievements in a fast-paced narrative that includes land deals and frauds, New York’s Boss Tweed, and all the local color of turn-of-the-20th-century Egypt . . . Brings to life a fascinating individual and his world.  Highly recommended for anyone interested in the history of Egyptology or America’s Gilded Age.”
