Publisher's Summary

In this fast-paced sequel to The Everything Box - the second entry in New York Times best-selling author Richard Kadrey's comedic supernatural series - chaos ensues when Coop and the team at DOPS steal a not-quite-dead and very lovesick ancient Egyptian mummy wielding some terrifying magic.
Coop, a master thief sort of gone legit, saved the world from an ancient doomsday device - heroism that earned him a gig working for the Department of Peculiar Science, a fearsome top-secret government agency that polices the odd and strange. Now Woolrich, Coop's boss at the DOPS, has Coop breaking into a traveling antiquities show to steal a sarcophagus containing the mummy of a powerful Egyptian wizard named Harkhuf. With the help of his pals Morty, Giselle, and a professor that's half cat, half robotic octopus, Coop pulls off the heist without a hitch.
It's not Coop's fault that when DOPS opened the sarcophagus, they didn't find the mummy they were expecting. Well, it was the right mummy, but it wasn't exactly dead - and now it's escaped, using a type of magic the organization hasn't encountered before. Being a boss, Woolrich blames his underling for the screwup and wants Coop to find the missing Harkhuf and make it right, pronto.
Digging into Harkhuf's history, Coop thinks the mummy is hunting for an ancient magical manuscript that will help him bring his old lover back to life. Which wouldn't be so bad if she wasn't a warrior sorceress hell-bent on conquering the world with her undead armies. Coop would very much like to run from the oncoming chaos. It's one thing to steal a mummy but another to have to deal with head-hunting bureaucrats, down-on-their luck fortune-tellers, undead mailroom clerks, and a rather unimpressed elephant. Unfortunately there's nowhere to run. If he wants the madness to stop, he's going to have to suck it up and play hero one more time. But if Coop manages to save the world again, he's definitely going to want a lot of answers. And a raise.

great series

very entertaining series - I highly recommend it. this one was a nice build on the last with out leaving any huge clif-hangers at the end, but still setting up your interest in more of Coop' s adventures. Audible 20 Review Sweepstakes Entry.

Tongue-In-Cheek Horror

This is a follow-on to 'The Everything Box', and carries the same offbeat characters through to new adventures. Consider that the action centers around an agency so secret that if they tell you about it they have to kill you - and then put you to work in the mailroom. Using everything from psychotic ghosts to mutant mice, Kadrey tells a wild, fast-paced story of a mummy's boy who is wrapped up in the search for his lost love, and the mayhem and murder that ensues. Cooper, our criminal and reluctant hero, has his hands full saving the day while doing his best to stay alive. He really doesn't want to end up in the mail room. Great fun and highly recommended.
