When Colonel Delamere dies at the hands of two burglars, his solicitor, Eric Ward, has to carry out the Colonel's instructions regarding an Anubis statuette: he is to send a sealed letter to the Foreign Office, and hand the statue over. Unfortunately, the statue was taken by the burglars and cannot be found. As well as the Foreign Office, others seem determined to acquire the mysterious statue - including Israeli Intelligence, and a gang of North-Eastern descendants of Yemeni immigrants known as the Sand Dancers. Will anyone discover the secrets of the Guardian of the Dead, or will they be taken to the grave?
