Description

London, 1888. Victorian adventuress Veronica Speedwell can't resist the allure of an exotic mystery-particularly one involving her enigmatic colleague, Stoker. His former expedition partner has vanished from an archaeological dig with a priceless diadem unearthed from the newly discovered tomb of an Egyptian princess, just the latest in a string of unfortunate events that have plagued the controversial expedition. In London, rumours abound that the curse of the vengeful princess has been unleashed as the shadowy figure of Anubis himself stalks the streets.

Sordid details emerge from Stoker's past, and caught in a tangle of conspiracies and threats, Veronica must separate facts from fantasy to unravel a web of duplicity that threatens to cost Stoker everything...
