The Final Expedition - Episode 1


“Evening, Sirs,” Richard, the night porter, said without a glance.

Jacob Malden tipped his bowler and passed into the darkened museum. The mummy's stares pierced the darkness. He'd need another raise to spend another day-long voyage trapped inside a sarcophagus.

“I have an old SSB contact in Zurich – Russian troublemaker type. Sent me a letter Buckingham’s interested in,” Arthur said, the darkened museum swallowing their conversation.

“Buckingham’s not Downing Street,” Jacob smirked.

“Scotch?” Arthur asked once within his office.

Jacob waved. One appeared anyway. “What’s got them interested?”

“How familiar are you with biblical prophecies and a centurion named Longinus?”
