(From the publisher):
Walter Rothschild is an American Egyptologist living in London and charged by the British Museum with the task of unlocking the ancient riddle of the Stela of Paser, one of the last remaining real-life hieroglyphic mysteries in existence today. The secrets of the stela - a centuries-old funerary stone - have evaded scholars for thousands of years due to the stela's cryptic reference to a third translation:
As for this writing, it is to be read three times. Its like has not been seen before, or heard since the time of the god.
-inscription on the Stela of Paser
Drawn into its mystery, Rothschild becomes the dupe of a seduction, robbery, and conspiracy engineered by a cult devoted to ancient Egyptian mysticism. With no one to trust and nothing as it appears, he must fight an elusive enemy to save his livelihood - and his very life.
