First of all a night watchman is found dead in the Mummy Room of the museum, a look of horror frozen on his face and very soon panic spreads through the capital while the gutter press ask the question 'Can Fear Kill?'.

And as Amelia closes in on the murderer, Emerson and Ramses must try to keep her from adding herself to the list of victims...
