It's 1922. Amelia Peabody and her family have returned to the Valley of the Kings, and look forward to delving once more into the mysteries buried in Egypt's sands. But a widow's strange story -- and even stranger request -- will plunge them into a storm of secrets, treachery, and murder.

The woman has come bearing a treasure -- a golden likeness of a forgotten king -- which she claims is cursed. She says it has killed her husband and unless it is returned to the tomb from which it was stolen, more people will die.

Intrigued, Amelia and her clan resolve to uncover the secrets of the statue. But each step toward the truth seems to reveal another peril, suggesting that the curse is more than mere superstition ...
