Egyptian tombs are sealed for a reason. Opening them is a nightmare in this novel of archaeological horror by the British Fantasy Award - winning author.

Archaeology photographer John Tolworth is thrilled to be returning to Devon where he'd spent his youth. He's been hired to help decode the ancient papyri excavated a century ago with Egypt's Gold Tomb mummies, now entombed in Baverstock Castle. These four summer weeks should also be a unique vacation for his family. But once John steps foot in the shadow of the imposing fortress, memories of a horrific past are rekindled. He can still hear the screams of his childhood friend, Phillip, inheritor of Baverstock. Philip remembers everything. It's cost him his sanity. Certainly, his warnings for John to leave must be the ravings of a madman. If not, then the local legend is true: When people sleep, that's when the mummies wake up.

Soon, for John and his family, the quiet of the castle's chamber towers will begin to stir, and as night falls all its secrets will be unearthed.
