Excerpt

here like this, untouched and undisturbed until our family's duty is discharged.'

'And when is that?'

Cedric reached inside his jacket and pulled out an envelope. It was brittle and yellowed with age, and a fleck of paper flaked off and floated to the basement floor as he teased open the end. From inside he drew a piece of card. He handed it to his nephew.

'An invitation card?' In fact it was half a card. The faded gilt of the rounded edge ended in a jagged tear where the card had been torn across. Aubrey read the half sentences on the printed side, trying to fill in the missing words and phrases.

'Probably you will pass that on to your next of kin just as I do,' Cedric said quietly.

'But there is a chance, just a chance, that during your lifetime he will come.'

'Who will?'

'Whoever has the other half of that invitation card. He will come to claim the mummy, and you must release it to him.'

'And when that happens?'

Cedric Prior shrugged. He traced his finger along the edge

Fabulous classic style Dr Who novelisation - this features Peter Davison's doctor along with Nyssa and Tegan and is a complex tale of Egyptian mummies in Victorian times that bounces back and forth by several thousand years and plays with time and paradoxes. Great action and has definitely caught the characters voices nicely, with a solid plot and some lovely little asides. Highly recommended.
