Summary
London, 1821. Recently returned from Egypt, the adventurer Giovanni Belzoni enthrals Londoners with the city's first exhibition devoted to Egyptian art. As he unveils his star exhibit, a perfectly-preserved mummy, there is a collective intake of breath. The astonishing spectacle provokes an immediate scandal: a hysterical preacher demands the destruction of this pagan relic; an elderly Lord wants to feed it to his dogs; a pathologist wishes to keep the body in order to study this fascinating phenomenon. But the following night, the mummy disappears - and the preacher, the Lord and the pathologist are murdered. The case is handed to the country's foremost detective, Inspector Higgins, For him, the prime suspect is none other than the mummy itself. He is also convinced that the revolutionary conspiracy causing unrest in London's most squalid districts and the mummy's disappearance are closely linked. Assisted by the beautiful Lady Suzanna, will Inspector Higgins succeed in solving the puzzle before the mummy's inescapable judgment?
