Mummies, mysteries and lethal labyrinths—everything you could ever wish for in a book.
Simon and Helena are farmers along the Nile in the Ancient world, and get a visit from pharaoh Tutankhamun, who wants to experience how normal people live. But right afterwards he dies mysteriously. Tutankhamun’s mummy haunts Simon and Helena, asking them to find out how he died. A mission that takes the two not only to the palace, but also to Babylon, the Tower of Babel and the Minotaur’s labyrinth. Simon is swallowed by a gigantic wrasse and has to race Icarus in flight, while Helena is almost killed by the Minotaur and has to act as a slave on a ship. Finally, they must both solve the riddles of the pyramid and descend down into the underworld.
