It has been said that the Sahara Desert consumes the past. For Matthew Morrissey and his mentor, the phrenologist Dr. Asa B. Cornwall, there's also the danger of its swallowing the present. In their search for the skull of Alexander the Great, Matthew and Dr. ABC journey across the "Great Sand Sea" in a camel caravan, unaware of the perils that await them--both human and supernatural. Overtaken by slave traders, Matthew and the doctor must call upon all of their knowledge and wit to save themselves and some unfortunate others from disaster. Flowing from Paris to the northern Africa of the 1840s, this sequel to Skullduggery shows that Matthew's ingenuity is a match for the strangely beautiful yet bizarre and deadly world of the desert.
