Publisher's Summary

Amara was once the beautiful Princess of Egypt. Now, 4,000 years later, she and her coffin are merely prized exhibits of the Charles Ward Museum. If you were to look at her today, you would see only a brittle bundle of bones and dried skin. But looks can be very deceiving, as Barney, the museum's night watchman, finds out. You cannot kill what is already dead.


What the Critics Say

"This exuberantly entertaining horror novel is grade-A Laymon....this one hurtles from start to finish - never mind the large cast and tripartite plot - and as in all Laymons, the sex, violence and violent sex will leave even jaded readers gasping." (Publishers Weekly)

Move onto the next book

One thing I love about Audible is the daily deal. It has taken me into books that I would not normally risk.

The downside is that at times there is rubbing like this. Not even sure why I saw it through to the bitter end.

Several stories that interweave for no apparent reason and an unbelievable scenario with a blind woman that seems to be in the narrative only to introduce sex scenes. Which are totally unnecessary.

The narrator also, whilst not bad has the wrong tenor of voice for such a subject matter would be much better narrating a serious drama.

Unless you like really really really pulp fiction avoid
