Dr. Mark Davison had been saved by a stroke of extraordinary good fortune. He had lost his professorship, but in its place had come an opportunity any Egyptologist would envy. A rare journal had come into his hands. And with it, funds to go to Egypt ... to dig in the fabled sands of Tel el-Amarna ... to discover a treasure that had eluded every seeker.
Mark was an expert. A scientist. Before him lay the chance of a lifetime. He would not be deterred -- not by romance or danger, not by myth or legend, not even by the seven curses of the Watch Gods.
