Storyline

When Professor Gerald Smaill, an American archaeologist, discovers a golden Byzantine cross in cave in Asia Minor, a disembodied voice threatens him with death. While en route on a cruise ship back to England, he receives additional threats and confides in fellow passenger Father Brown. A secret crypt under a Dover Church has been recently uncovered containing the body of a 13th Century bishop that has been mummified in the Egyptian fashion along with a similar golden cross. Smaill, Brown, and several of the ship's passengers investigate the find and risk the curse that accompanies it. Written by duke1029@aol.com

Goofs

Father Brown says, "Our Father Superior is constantly telling me I lack foresight." There is no such title in the hierarchy of the Catholic Church (unlike 'Mother Superior', which often designates the chief nun in a convent). The head of a religious community may be called the Superior (and Father Brown is a diocesan priest, so this doesn't apply; he would be answerable to his Bishop), and every priest may be called Father, but never the two together.
