The irascible husband of Victorian Egyptologist Amelia
Peabody demonstrates again why he has been
nicknamed "Father of Curses." Denied permission to dig at
the pyramids of Dahshoor, Emerson is awarded instead
the "pyramids" of Mazghunah - countless mounds of rubble
in the midst of nowhere. Nothing in this barren spot
seems worthy of interest - until someone gets killed.
The dead man is an antiquities dealer murdered in his
cairo shop. When a sinister Egyptian spotted at the crime
scene turns up in Mazghunah, Amelia can't resist following
his trail. There's a mysterious scrap of papyrus and a
missing mummy case to investigate while she keeps at least
one eye on their precocious son Ramses and his Egyptian
cat. But the digging turns truly dangerous when Amelia
and Emerson look for answers in an ancient tomb, one that
could become their grave...
