Who or what is responsible for the gruesome deaths of members of the secret society known as the Order of Osiris?
Dr. Armiston, an irascible, confirmed bachelor who believes in medicine not mysticism, is certain the deaths are only tragic accidents.
The members of the Order of Osiris suspect something more sinister is at work. They profess to believe an ancient curse has been visited upon their society. Handsome and mysterious Captain Maxwell requests Armiston’s help.
Tarot cards? Egyptology? Spiritualism? Armiston has little patience with the superficial and silly pastimes of the rich, but he does love a good puzzle. Or could it be that he is more drawn to young Captain Maxwell than he wishes to admit?
Either way, Armiston must solve the secret of the cursed sarcophagus very soon, for Captain Maxwell is the next slated to die…

I was reluctant to read this mash-up (not into that sort of thing at all), but was jonesing for another Lanyon read. It was amazing and opened up my interest into old horror novels. A must to try out and fantastic writing.
Was difficult to read, difficult to follow at times! Skimmed through it to see who murderer was, then deleted it. Save your money.
I haven't, finished the whole book yet, and I did get an advanced copy in return for my honest opinion, but so far it has grabbed my attention and I don't want to stop reading. I've read quite a few Josh Lanyon books and have never been disappointed and The Curse of the Blue Scarab so far is off to a great start. The characters are intriguing and the story pulls you in and just makes you want to stay up all night until you finish it. Which is probably exactly what I am going to do. If you like mysteries or Josh Lanyon books, you need to read this.
