Dr Pimms, Intermillennial Sleuth. Really cold cases.
Dr Elizabeth Pimms, enthusiastic archaeologist and reluctant librarian, has returned to Egypt.
Among the treasures of the Cairo museum she spies cryptic symbols in the corner of an ancient papyrus. Curiosity leads Elizabeth and her gang of sleuths to investigate a cache of mummies hidden in the Golden Tomb.
What is the connection between the Tomb and Tausret, female Pharaoh and last ruler of Egypt's Nineteenth Dynasty? How did the mummies end up scattered across the globe? And is Elizabeth's investigation related to attacks on her family and friends?
Between grave robbers, modern cannibals, misinformed historians and jealous Pharaohs, can Dr Pimms solve her latest archaeological mystery?
