While I remember loving other novels by Erskine (Midnight Is a Lonely Place in particular scared me deliciously), this one didn't work for me.

I loved the set-up - Anna, recently divorced and seeking a new purpose, signs on for a cruise to Egypt, taking with her an antique scent bottle and a diary from her great-grandmother (who had also traveled to Egypt, during the Victorian period). The scent bottle turns out to be haunted by the spirits of two ancient Egyptian priests, and as Anna learns more about its history (as well as that of her great-grandmother), she comes to realize that she is in danger of being haunted herself.

All quite promising, but as the novel progressed, Anna experienced far too many TSTL moments, and the ending was completely frustrating.
