A hundred years ago

 100 years ago today King Tut's tomb was discovered. In celebration here's a nibble from my next Sherlock Holmes tale, The Strange Case of the Pharaoh's Heart

--provided my publisher publishes it:

"I have read since that Carter describes it as having a 'sad but tranquil expression.' True enough, but it’s also a bit unnerving, those large eyes staring up at you from centuries past, the oddly delicate, almost feminine features. I will never be quit of that unyielding golden face, nor the unasked question that seems to hang upon his lips."
