What you need to know before your trail

The opening of an archaeological exhibition brings with it intrigue and evil as a fabled cursed golden death mask lives up to its dark past and death strikes at the exhibition. While digging up pieces of history, these archaeologists have also been burying secrets – deadly ones – and it’s up to Jasper to uncover the truth before the murderer strikes again.

With a nosy journalist desperate to breathe life into the rumour that the mask brings bad luck to anyone possessing it, and the police eager to blame a famous cat burglar who recently pulled off a string of daring robberies, Jasper is on his own in bringing the true culprit to light.

Travel Guide

Travel around Vienna with Jasper and a murder trail

Inspector Jasper of Scotland Yard is in Vienna on holiday where an archaeological exhibit with a golden death mask reputed to be cursed is on display.

There are many other sites in the city highlighted which are worth a visit in real life. Prater Park for example:

“The Prater was the beating heart of the city and a meeting place for many.”

Vienna’s history comes to life via its museums and the search for a death mask. The city itself is a background rather than a central character but it’s an atmospheric one.
