The Mummy

A tale of the supernatural ... become natural.

The Mummy   Other Titles

When Harold Ostrich, a successful businessman, buys a mummy at an antique shop and it comes to life, his world is turned into a nightmare. For the first time he must deal with the terror of a supernatural event, which in its persistence threatens to undermine everything he has worked for and any chance of happiness in his life.

By turns anxious, bizarre, and wryly funny, THE MUMMY explores what happens when a life based on unquestioned notions of reality is overturned by coming face to face with the frighteningly inexplicable, and what struggles and spiritual transformations take place along the way

"Unique, compelling, unpredictable, engaging, blending humor with suspense, deftly crafted and unfailingly entertaining, "The Mummy" is a 'must read' and will prove to be enduringly popular addition to community library collections." --- Midwest Book Review
