The Wild Wild West: The Night of the Egyptian Queen

In San Francisco, Artie goes to the Museum of Art and meets with the curator, Mr. Logan, to examine the recreation of the tomb of an ancient pharaoh, Ho Tem Ra. Mounted on the statue of the pharaoh is a large ruby. They’re expecting Jim and the Egyptian representative, Heisel, to be there anytime. A guard delivers a shipment and Logan doesn’t remember expecting one, but tells the guard to bring it in. He admits to Artie that he’s been getting absent-minded in his old age. As Logan shows Artie a rare scarab, three men in gas masks emerge from the crate...
