An entertaining adventure of time travel and magic. In the past, Egyptian sorcerors are plotting against the British, trying to destroy them in the future.
In the future/present, a wealthy man discovers the key to some time travel secrets, via the use of gates. Hiring an academic, he tests one out, but the guy is stuck in the past, and gets tied up in the whole Egyptian sorcery thing.
Plenty of other wild stuff in this book, too.
