But only hours after opening its doors, Uncle Will falls mysteriously ill and Tom seems to have disappeared without trace. Together with Ethan Wade, the young American soldier of fortune who is managing the dig in Uncle Will's absence, and a pretty French woman called Madeleine Duval, Alec sets about unravelling the tomb's mysteries.It features seemingly harmless animals that have turned into rabid killers; long dead mummies are rising from their tombs; the spirit of a powerful High Priest is claiming the bodies of the living as his living hosts; and together Alec and Ethan must confront a terror that has waited three thousand years to be reborn.
