In an old Chicago railroad house, a crack dealer is robbing his customer - a huge, shrouded figure with a thousand in cold cash and a featureless face. The pusher empties his .44 into the man, who is slammed against a wall by the bullets' force. But he rises unharmed - and slowly approaches his attacker with a meat cleaver. "My turn," he utters calmly. He's the Dark Man, a force of evil....
His name is Satni Jambres. It means nothing now, but 30 centuries ago, he was the most feared sorcerer in the world. None dared challenge him, for his magic was fueled by the dark gods of the night. Then, in a surprising twist of fate, a stranger, a one-time slave, brought him to his knees - defeated him using magic that even Jambres could not withstand.
From the still halls of a Chicago museum, they've stolen a priceless ancient relic, and from its blackened crevices they've liberated a human spirit. His name is Jambres - priest of the once-mighty empire of Egypt - and for more than three millennia, he's waited to walk again on earth.
