Murder Amongst the Dunes

Murder Amongst the Dunes 
a Pyramid Puzzles Murder Mystery

It's winter in the Roaring Twenties. A few hundred miles south of Cairo, an hour into the desert from the Nile, is the archaeological dig site of Abu Aramid. An unknown tomb has been found. Dig chief archaeologist, Matthew Wilson, is hoping that the timely arrival of the Philanthropist Lady Lucille will precipitate more funds for a second season at the site. Within hours of arriving, Lady Lucille receives a hieroglyphic note that intimates that her first Egyptian visit may be her last. However, the sudden death of Site manager Abdullah and the various unusual happenings indicate that perhaps there is more to the locals' gossip about a Mummy’s curse than at first appears.
