plot

Dr. Janis Crunbitt has just taken delivery of the sarcophagus of King Rametupem which is to be added to The Wapping Collection. However there's just one small problem, the sarcophagus has been replaced by a dead body. Even worse, Professor Bloomers, due to deliver an Egyptian papyrus to Dr. Crunbitt, has gone missing. Dr. Crunbitt decides to call in that master sleuth Lord Peter Flimsey and his faithful servant Punter to get to the bottom of these foul deeds. It appears that there may be more to this Egyptian mystery than meets the eye...

review

The worst of the Flimsy trilogy. For some reason, Joan Sims is rather annoying in this one and desperately overacts. Although to be fair, she hardly had the best material to work with.
