The Investigations of Inspector Higgins
Volume 22 : Tutankhamun's Curse
Outraged by the nonsense disseminated about the mummy of Tutankhamun, the top scientist Jennifer Stowe decides to travel to Egypt with a group of specialists.
But the trip never happens. She is stabbed – and not just with any weapon, but with the iron dagger of Tutankhamun that had been stolen from the Cairo Museum. Is it a curse? Scotland Yard receives a strange message: anyone who attempts to disturb the sleep of Tutankhamun will be annihilated…
Called in to help by Commissioner Marlow, Inspector Higgins uncovers both a conspiracy and an assassin. Yet one problem remains indecipherable: the real motive behind the crimes…
In addition to his fantastic novels about ancient Egypt, Christian Jacq is also the author of a cult series, The investigations of Inspector Higgins, which has captivated thousands of readers.
Inspector Higgins, a worthy heir to Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot, is the hero of this cozy crime series.
