I admit, I’m not the best at making flattering bookcover pictures, but it’s my best try for now. It’s Wednesday and as you can see it’s rather dreary outside. So time for a quiet night in with a good book. In this case, I just started reading The Curse of the Blue Scarab by Josh Lanyon, as you can see. I’m rather intrigued as to where this is going and by the main character Dotor Armiston.
What are you reading this Wednesday?
Who or what is responsible for the gruesome deaths of members of the secret society known as the Order of Osiris?
Dr. Armiston, an irascible, confirmed bachelor who believes in medicine not mysticism, is certain the deaths are only tragic accidents.
The members of the Order of Osiris suspect something more sinister is at work. They profess to believe an ancient curse has been visited upon their society. Handsome and mysterious Captain Maxwell requests Armiston’s help.
Tarot cards? Egyptology? Spiritualism? Armiston has little patience with the superficial and silly pastimes of the rich, but he does love a good puzzle. Or could it be that he is more drawn to young Captain Maxwell than he wishes to admit?
Either way, Armiston must solve the secret of the cursed sarcophagus very soon, for Captain Maxwell is the next slated to die…
