“A terrific tale of plots, curses and evil forces set in ancient Egypt.” Sunday Express
When the workers building Lord Khafre’s pyramid plot to steal the treasure buried inside the neighbouring Great Pyramid, the only thing they are afraid of is the curse that protects the tomb.
They persuade Senu, whose bond with his otherworldly ka gives him magical powers, to help them. But Red is afraid to talk to the dead, and Senu is fast approaching the age when children cut off their ka-tails… can Senu and his friends outwit the robbers and save their families from the dead lord’s vengeance?
