Teaser Tuesday - The Seventh Scroll

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


Royan and her business partner Nicholas have traveled from England to Ethiopia in search of a lost Pharaoh's tomb written about in an ancient scroll. They have searched the Nile river for clues to the secret location, and have found carvings in a cliff wall that may lead them closer to their goal.  They've also been shot at, nearly died in an explosion, and kicked out of Ethiopa.  Now back in England, they plan to return and try to claim  the Pharaoh's treasure before the man who killed Royan's husband, Herr von Schiller, can steal it from them.

The Tease:
 "Von Schiller had gone ashen pale as he listened.  Sweat beaded upon his forehead, and his voice was hoarse and chesty as he asked, "A royal mummy?""
 -The Seventh Scroll, by Wilbur Smith
