Who or what is responsible for the gruesome deaths of members of the secret society known as the Order of Osiris?
Dr. Armiston, an irascible, confirmed bachelor who believes in medicine, not mysticism, is certain the deaths are only tragic accidents.
The members of the Order of Osiris suspect something more sinister is at work. They profess to believe an ancient curse has been visited upon their society. Handsome and mysterious Captain Maxwell requests Armiston's help.
Tarot cards? Egyptology? Spiritualism? Armiston has little patience with the superficial and silly pastimes of the rich, but he does love a good puzzle. Or could it be that he is more drawn to young Captain Maxwell than he wishes to admit?
Either way, Armiston must solve the secret of the cursed sarcophagus very soon, for Captain Maxwell is the next slated to die....

Needs an English narrator.
I’d already read and enjoyed the story very much, and on the whole liked this performance. Alexander Masters is an excellent narrator and produces a remarkably good English accent which for brief periods convinces me (as an English listener). But he is NOT English, and an American accent slips in every couple of minutes. And more worryingly, there are quite frequent non-English pronunciations, eg INquiry instead of inQUIREry, Albany instead of ALLbany, BERKley Square for BARKley, floorist for florist with a short 'o', etc etc. I found myself starting to listen uneasily for the mistakes. Are English narrators not available for American authors? That being said, Josh Lanyon is one of my favourite authors, and her books are always a delight; and Alexander Masters is such a good narrator (but better in American!). J
