Synopsis

When Robert Cairn is caught out in the rain, he sees something strange. Apollo, the king of the swans, seems to have died without apparent reason right in front of his eyes! When Robert goes to investigate, he discovers that the swan had its neck broken in three places. He's so spooked by this that he goes to the nearest home, the one of Antony Ferrara. Inside Antony's home, Robert feels frightened and suffocated.

Antony has always been a strange man. He's been rumored to be a bad boy of sorts and was asked to leave Egypt. The reason for that, nobody quite knows. But Robert sees some strange things in Antony's home. He glimpses Egyptian artifacts and creepiest of all, an unwrapped mummy. Why Antony has all these items, one can only guess. Their guesses are nothing compared to the strange happenings that's actually happening. And Robert and his friends must find out what before it's too late!

Sax Rohmer was a prolific author of early science fiction and fantasy. He was perhaps best known for creating the super-villian, Dr. Fu Manchu -- a character who went on the become the subject of many films and, in fact, much plundering. (Think about it for a moment: how many evil Chinese Mandarin masterminds have you heard tell of? Remember Ian Fleming's Dr. No? Flash Gordon's Ming the Merciless? Lo-Pan, from Big Trouble in Little China? Egg Fu, from Wonder Woman? Be careful. They're everywhere.)
