Secrets of a Sun King

By Emma Carroll

It's November, 1922.  In a valley in Egypt the tomb of a long dead pharaoh is about to be discovered.  The world watches and waits for news with bated breath.  Thirteen-year-old Lilian Kaye, who lives in a flat above a shop in London, is eagerly following the story.  One morning the news takes a sinister turn: a man, a famous Egyptologist, disappears.  All that remains of him are his feet.  Then Lil's grandfather is taken suddenly ill, and when a mysterious package turns up for him from the Egyptologist, Lil starts to believe there is truth to the rumours of a pharaoh's curse.
