I Dig Murder begins in the present with an accidental discovery in Egypt: an ancient, undisturbed tomb of the same potential magnitude as those discovered by Howard Carter in 1922 and Dr. Kent Weeks in 1995. Two American Egyptologists, Doctors Lisa Hampton and Bill Sanders, brave anti-American sentiments, religious ideological fervor and political intrigue to reveal the history-changing story of the tomb. Working with the Egyptian army, the Ministry of State for Antiquities, and the Egyptian government, the pair move from one suspenseful event to another while uncovering a surprising and potentially deadly secret behind Egypt's current unrest.

Interleaved with the modern story is a tale from ancient Egyptian mythology. In 3290 B.C.E., roughly 60 years before the dawn of Pharaonic Egypt, a southern Egyptian ruler with a persistent vision struggles to unify the fledgling city-states of Egypt into a single kingdom. Pharaoh, his unconventional wife, her prophetess sister, and a gifted engineer-priest, are opposed by Pharaoh's treacherous older brother, who has his own desire for power. How will their struggle unfold across desert and river and how will it affect the future?
