Virginia Jones & the Curse of Nergal
Kathy Hobbs and her murderous troupe of Fantastical Theatrical killers are back to their mischievous ways -- spoofing another classic with Virginia Jones & The Curse of Nergal (Book by David Landau).
This mystery spoof of the Indiana Jones series takes place in Marlene's Cabaret in Liechtenstein. It seems that wealthy explorer, Sir Wallis Burgess, is dead. His ashes are collected in an urn he retrieved from the recently discovered tomb of the Mesopotamian God of the Underworld, Nergal.
Some say he died of “the curse.”
Others suspect his greedy wife, his mysterious
mistress, his double-crossing partner or the
dangerous followers of the Underworld God.
It is up to adventuress Virginia Jones
(Indy's little sister) to discover which as well as
