Egypt, a supernatural, mystery, and an unknown creature are all found in this 1897 novel by Richard March. The Beetle is the story of a creature born of neither God nor man. This monsterous creature stalks British politician, Paul Lessingham. The creature uses its hypnotic powers to find Paul and exact the revenge it seeks for the defilement of a tomb in Egypt. Marsh uses the current interest of Londoners in hypnosis and animal magnetism to increase the terror in his story. This is a story not for the faint of heart.
