I have to admit
this was pretty poor: a preposterous plot full of dodgy hokery-pokery
(or hokum-pokum, if you prefer), unbelievably long-winded (the whole
thing could've fitted into a short story), and really amazingly dull,
with a whole tanker-load of cardboard cutout characters, implausible
plot 'twists', boring Ancient Egyptian mumbo-jumbo, boring Modern
English spiritualist tripe ... you name it. Avoid.
