Josiah Samson: Antiquarian: The Unknown Goddess by Tim WellmanBook 1

A Victorian murder mystery among the tombs of Egypt. The year is 1871, a world of discovery and invention. Electricity, electric lights, fast airship travel… it is not quite the Victorian England of history books! Join proper English gentleman and antiquarian, Josiah Samson, and his surprisingly able assistant, Bea, on their first adventure! Murder, suspense, ancient secrets revealed… it all starts here!

Samson receives two packages by post… one, an exquisite ancient Egyptian statue, the other, the tortured corpse of a colleague. Luckily, his new maid seems to know the reason, and together they head to the Valley Of The Kings to get things sorted… but is it that simple?
