King Tutankhamen’s palace is in an uproar. He is being haunted by mysterious moans, and he has felt a menacing presence. The spirit of Hatshepsut, first known female pharaoh of Egypt, is appearing at Tut’s bedside, disrupting his sleep and threatening his ability to rule his kingdom effectively. After consulting with his trusty advisors General Heremhab and Chariot Commander Ay, Tut also realizes that someone is stealing artifacts from the Royal Treasury. Even Atenab, the half-blind priest, seems unable to ease his fears.

King Tut and his lovely wife Ankes-en-pa-aten engage the power of the greatest gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt to solve the mystery. Under their advice, they hire three lowly fishermen to act as palace servants while they seek answers. These eager detectives leave no stone unturned in their quest for clues. They examine questionable footprints, decipher hieroglyphics, and even hide in wall paintings to listen to suspicious-looking characters. Adults and children alike will enjoy this comic adventure as good triumphs over evil, order is restored to ancient Egypt, and the villain and/or villains are punished for a thousand years.
