  • 1898: Bound for Chicago, the freighter Jerry McGuen goes down in Lake Michigan, taking with it every man aboard. But what other fate could befall a vessel carrying the ill-gotten sarcophagus of an Egyptian sorcerer?

    Now: A veteran diver and "ghost ship" expert is exploring the legendary wreck for a documentary. He dies inexplicably inside the freighter's main saloon. Then another diver is killed and panicked rumors rise like bubbles from the lake: ancient demons have awakened below!

    The expedition's beleaguered financier calls paranormal investigator Katya Sokolov to Chicago to save the film--and perhaps some innocent lives. Along with media forensics guru Will Chan, Kat plumbs the depths of an evil that may date back to the time of the Pharaohs. But some secrets are best drowned in the seas of the past....
  • From the book

    "Amun Mopat," Katya Sokolov said to Logan Rain-tree. "You're kidding me, right?"

    The heat that had been shining through the skylight seemed to disappear, as if the sun itself had lost some energy.

    The name made her shudder. They'd just finished investigating a death in Los Angeles at Eddie Archer's special effects studio--a death based on an old film noir remake. The original movie had been titled Sam Stone and the Curious Case of the Egyptian Museum. The new one, fittingly, was called The Unholy.

    "No, I'm not kidding," Logan said.

    He had a fascinating face, the result of Native American and European parents, handsome and filled with character. She had learned to read it well, and she knew--he was not kidding.

    Amun Mopat.

    It was the name of the insidious ancient Egyptian priest who had supposedly come back to life to perpetrate murders. He was a character in a movie.

    A character used in the very recent tragedies that had taken place.

    And now... Amun Mopat?

    "Amun Mopat, yes," Logan said, almost as if she'd spoken aloud. He leaned back, looking around with a sigh. They sat in the beautiful little lobby-cafe of their boutique hotel, surrounded by wrought-iron lattice work and art deco design. The past weeks--although somewhat traumatic in the final resolution and cleanup--had still contained some nice upswings. They'd seen tapings of half a dozen TV shows, including Kat's favorite comedy, spent days at the beach in Malibu, visited the Magic Castle and other attractions, and actually experienced something that resembled a vacation.

    This meeting didn't bode well. She'd received the call to meet Logan while she was enjoying a visit to the La Brea Tar Pits. It had been an urgent call, and she'd known it meant she wouldn't be seeing a retro performance of the Rocky Horror Picture Show that night with Tyler Montague and Jane, two of the six in their special FBI unit.

    She'd wondered if the others were going to be involved, but she was sitting here alone with Logan.

    She had all but forgotten her strange dream of the night before. And now, even as it seemed to come crashing down around her, she wondered what a storm at sea could have to do with Amun Mopat.

    The curse. She'd heard the words in her dream. Egyptian entities always seemed to come with curses!

    "Go figure. After all this--Amun Mopat. In Chicago," Logan said in a dry voice.

    "Yeah, go figure. Chicago," she repeated blankly.

    Logan Raintree was her superior, the head of their team. Their actual boss was the elusive Adam Harrison, who had begun this excursion into the unknown--and the known--combining FBI technology and certain...unusual talents. Logan worked loosely with the head of the first team, Jackson Crow, evaluating information from those who sought help and deciding which cases truly called for their unique abilities. Since the original group of special investigators had become known as the Krewe of Hunters, they'd unofficially been dubbed the Texas Krewe. Their first case had been in San Antonio, home to many of them. Working with Logan and the other team members was thrilling and gratifying at once; it felt as if they spoke an ancient and secret language, and had come together as nationals from the same foreign country.

    At the moment, she wasn't feeling especially thrilled. Or gratified. She wished she was back at the Tar Pits.

    "And you want me to go out there now?" Kat asked. She didn't add alone.

    Logan glanced at his...
