Brenda and Effie are drawn to a new tearoom in the park. It is owned by the dashing Professor Marius Keyes, who has stuffed the place with Egyptian Antiquities of all kinds. But why does his odd-tasting tea send both women a bit woozy? And why’s he got actual bandaged revenants hiding in his room at the Hotel Miramar and giving massages in his tearoom basement?

It’s all enough to give Brenda shocking flashbacks to the 1930s, when she was housemaid in the home of a certain Reginald Tyler and, together with Henry Cleavis, they fought forces of darkness and diabolism as the Smudgelings, an undercover monster-fighting team. Back then they uncovered a scheme to do with exotic tea leaves and vital life essences and a certain dessicated princess from ancient times.

In the present day the same awful dangers rear their bandaged heads, and it isn’t just Professor Marius Keyes who has mummy issues…
