Art historian Robert Wyatt receives a summons to visit the residence of his former lover, Margaret Trelawny. There, he discovers that Margaret’s father, renowned Egyptologist Abel Trelawny, has been found in a comatose state in his study, bearing unusual claw marks on his wrist. Trelawny’s last wishes stipulate that he must remain in the room alongside his collection of Egyptian artifacts, always under the observation of two witnesses.
