London, 1888. As colorful and unfettered as the
butterflies she collects, Victorian adventuress Veronica
Speedwell canâ€™t resist the allure of an exotic mysteryâ€”
particularly one involving her enigmatic colleague,
Stoker. His former expedition partner has vanished from
an archaeological dig with a priceless diadem unearthed
from the newly discovered tomb of an Egyptian princess.
This disappearance is just the latest in a string of
unfortunate events that have plagued the controversial
expedition, and rumors abound that the curse of the
vengeful princess has been unleashed as the shadowy
figure of Anubis himself stalks the streets of London.
But the perils of an ancient curse are not the only
challenges Veronica must face as sordid details and
malevolent enemies emerge from Stokerâ€™s past. Caught in a
tangle of conspiracies and threatsâ€”and thrust into the
public eye by an enterprising new foeâ€”Veronica must
separate facts from fantasy to unravel a web of duplicity
that threatens to cost Stoker everything. . . .
