Intrepid reporter sleuth Poppy Denby is invited to attend the auction of the Death Mask of Nefertiti. The auction is to be held on the country estate of Sir James Maddox, a famous explorer and Egyptologist. Representatives of the
world’s leading museums will be bidding on the mask which was found, in Egypt, under murderous circumstances.
Poppy and her colleagues from The Daily Globe, who are trying to stay one step ahead of their rivals from The
London Courier, dismiss rumours of an ancient curse. But when one of the auction party is murdered, and someone starts stalking Poppy, the race is on to find the killer before ‘the curse’ can strike again.
