Publisher's Summary

"Hither the Gods come not at any summons. The Nameless One has insulted them and is forever alone. Go not nigh, lest their vengeance wither you away!" The warning was inscribed on the entrance of the hidden tomb, forgotten for millennia in the sands of mystic Egypt. Then the archaeologists and grave robbers came in search of the fabled Jewel of Seven Stars, which they found clutched in the hand of the mummy. Few heeded the ancient warning, until all who came in contact with the Jewel began to die in a mysterious and violent way, with the marks of a strangler around their neck.
Now, in a bedroom filled with ancient relics, a distinguished Egyptologist lies senseless, stricken by a force that challenges human understanding. From beyond the grave Queen Tera is reaching out for the mysterious jewel that will bring her 5,000-year-old plan to fulfillment.

Mother of all Mummy-Stories

As far as I know the Jewel of the Seven Stars is the mother of all Mummy Stories (movies, etcetera). Being Egyptologist myself this of course is must-have literature. And I thoroughly enjoy Stoker's great story, again and again. I just love this book - great listen wherever you are.
The reading is very good, skilled and well told (though the actual audio quality could have been better).

More Stoker, please

I enjoyed this book from start to finish. Even if you are not particularly interested in Egyptology, it's a fantastic listen. Also recommended: Robert Whitfield's narration of "Dracula."
