Whyborne and Griffin set off for Egypt after Christine sends them a telegram asking for their assistance. They end up fighting Ghouls, evil undead spirits and a demon from Griffin's past much fun!
Whyborne is still working on his spells though he still adamantly denies being a sorcerer. Along with the usual creepy monsters and Whyborne's magic casting this book introduces a special someone to Christine wink wink. Secrets, backstabbing and magic I just love this series I really do.
