Publisher Description

#1 bestselling authors Preston & Child return with the next book in a series featuring archaeologist Nora Kelly and FBI Agent Corrie Swanson.

'A collision between past and present that will leave you breathless' – LEE CHILD

A MUMMY, AN ANCIENT TREASURE, A DANGEROUS MYSTERY.

After a shoot-out leaves a senior agent gravely wounded, FBI rookie Corrie Swanson finds herself under investigation. Her supervisor assures her she's not to blame and the black mark on her record will be cleared in short order. But Corrie finds she cannot shake off an overwhelming feeling of guilt.

As a distraction, she takes on a new case involving a fifty-year-old mummified corpse discovered in a hidden enclave at High Lonesome, a long-abandoned New Mexico ghost town. Quickly out of her depth, she realizes she needs the help of her old enemy, archaeologist Nora Kelly. The two women soon uncover a startling truth: the deceased was poisoned, and died clutching a priceless artifact.

Can Corrie and Nora solve the mystery of the scorpion's tail? Or will they – like others before them – die in the attempt?
