Described as Indiana Jones in pantyhose, Madison is hired to "ransom" the Heart of Egypt - a scarab stolen from the tomb of King Tut - and goes on the run in New York after she is framed for murder. Her leads take her from a medieval camel market and famed Khan market place to the Valley of the Kings and beyond to the incredible colossi at Abu Simbel. All the while Madison has to stay ahead of tomb robbers, assassins, and political fanatics as she dodges curses both ancient and modern to stay alive.

About Harold Robbins
Born in New York City, HAROLD ROBBINS was one of the world's bestselling authors, writing novels that often mirrored his own experiences and that were peopled by characters he had met. His novels include "Never Love a Stranger," "The Carpetbaggers," and "Dreams Die First." JUNIUS PODRUG was selected by the Robbins Estate to carry on the ideas, uncompleted works, and tradition of Harold Robbins because he was both a friend of Harold's and a writer whose books Harold admired. He is the author of "Frost of Heaven "and "Presumed Guilty."
