Journalist Shan Beaumont has always relied on her almost eerie sense of intuition. It's a power her father says comes from an Egyptian curse--the same curse that drove him insane. When a ritualistically mutilated body is found, he gives Shan a fragment of the Osiris Amulet and warns her of a coming darkness. With friend and photographer Winston MacGregor, Shan confronts suspect Victor Hahn in Germany. He's planning more than murder and Shan is hit by a horrifying vision of the future: Mummified men walk again with their hearts removed. Even Cleopatra shows up to see if it's true.
