Join this dizzying gallop through Egyptian temples, fiendish curses, evil spells, ancient incantations, terrifying sorcery and hideous plots by the crazed author of I Shot My Rich Aunt and Doctor Death. In the Nile valley, circa 1903, a party at the home of archaeologist Sir Nevil Blore becomes a struggle for survival when the translation of some stone tablets conjures up an ancient evil. What was the sin of Khopsis, turned to stone and waiting to be reborn if the Blores' niece is sacrificed on his altar? And why doesn't he have a head? What can thwart the magical powers of the 2000 year old high priest (or priestess, if you prefer)? How can Lucy's beloved save her? And why in the world does the mummy have a claw on its index finger? Can they locate the Pharaoh's jewels? And will they wish they hadn't? And what are zic zag eggs? This evening of non stop hilarity has so many surprises and twists you'll lose count.
