Publisher's Summary

Amara was once the beautiful Princess of Egypt. Now, 4,000 years later, she and her coffin are merely prized exhibits of the Charles Ward Museum. If you were to look at her today, you would see only a brittle bundle of bones and dried skin. But looks can be very deceiving, as Barney, the museum's night watchman, finds out. You cannot kill what is already dead.


What the Critics Say

"This exuberantly entertaining horror novel is grade-A Laymon....this one hurtles from start to finish - never mind the large cast and tripartite plot - and as in all Laymons, the sex, violence and violent sex will leave even jaded readers gasping." (Publishers Weekly)

Bad first impression

This was my first Laymon book and after listening to this I am not sure I will give him another chance. Too mutch sex not enough blood and terror. Its supposed to be a horror novel not a graphic romance!

Richard Laymon is an under appreciated writer

I'm glad to see audible post some Richard laymon titles, however these are not really his best work. I recommend "In the Dark" or "The Traveling Vampire Show"
