In the second book of the Texas Krewe trilogy, Graham delves into Egyptian history. The main characters are a great team, both professionally and romantically. And the subject of curses — and whether they actually exist — provides interesting food for thought.

Special Agent Dr. Katya Sokolov is called to Chicago to assist with a case involving the curse of Egyptian priest Amun Mopat, whose sarcophagus went down on the Jerry McGuen. When she hears an Egyptologist died while down at the wreckage, Kat is intrigued. Krewe member and agent Will Chan was in Chicago on vacation just as the Amun Mopat case made headlines. Causing trouble with his brash attitude, Will doesn’t exactly strike Kat as a desirable partner. As the deaths pile up, people speculate that it is the curse, but both Kat and Will firmly believe that curses are not real. So who’s behind this series of murders? And can the agents stop the real killer before the killer claims one of their own? (MIRA, Aug., 384 pp., $7.99)
