The last camel is dead, and Egyptologist Amelia
Peabody, her dashing husband, Emerson, and precocious son, Ramses, are in dire
straits on the sun-scorched desert sands. Months before, back in cool, green England,
Viscount Blacktower had approached them to find his son and his son’s new
bride, who have been missing in war-torn Sudan for over a decade. An
enigmatic message scrawled on papyrus and a cryptic map had been delivered to
Blacktower, awakening his hope that the couple was still alive.
Amelia nor Emerson believes the message is authentic, but the treasure map
proves an irresistible temptation. Now, deep in Nubia’s vast wasteland, they
discover too late how much treachery is afoot (and on camelback) … and survival
depends on Amelia’s solving a mystery as old as ancient Egypt and as
timeless as greed and revenge.
