Strange happenings are afoot in Rome, where a priceless and mysterious artefact -- the Imperishable Bauble of the ancient emperor Tiberius -- has gone missing!
Cairo Jim -- that well-known archaeologist and little-known poet -- and his friends Doris the macaw and Brenda the Wonder Camel are sent to Rome to try to get to the bottom of this act of felony.
They soon discover that the Bauble has terrifying powers if it is held in the wrong hands ... powers that could herald the end of civilisation as we know it!
Another astounding tale from that purveyor of archaeological oddities, Geoffrey McSkimming!
