It's 1903 in Cairo, and Amelia dreams of a large Egyptian cat, a
sign of good luck. But the luck turns when she and Emerson, who
are set to dig in the Valley of the Kings, receive an ominous
warning: "Stay away from tomb Twenty-A!" More trouble brews as
Ramses and Nefret, unknown to their parents, begin to sneak
about to help an American who believes she's being stalked. When
tomb Twenty-A reveals a mummy wearing silk unmentionables,
Amelia is trapped in a labyrinth of murder, passion and deceit.
