Doctor Nadia Becket, a brilliant computer Epigraphist is called on to decipher fragments of a shattered ancient Egyptian tablet reported to pinpoint the exact location of Cleopatra’s tomb.
The tomb is believe to be intact and contain a trove of priceless antiquities. In reality, only a number of essential funerary items remain along with two empty sarcophagi. Hieroglyphics in this tomb however, tell of a sect called the Pasht founded by Cleopatra’s daughter Selene after her death. Cleopatra’s treasures now reside in a secret location; the home of the Pasht located deep under an ancient trading station in desert near the old city of Caesaria in Mauritania. The horde includes two ancient and very powerful objects from the dawn of human civilisation, fashioned from unidentifiable materials – the Eye of Ra, and the Disc of Aten. Because of Dr. Becket’s profile in deciphering damaged ancient Egyptian texts, her activities are monitored by ruthless international thieves.
