'Oscar French is left alone with his archeologist Uncle's latest acquisition. Floating in a glass dome filled with formaldehyde, the relic is a grisly severed head from a mysterious tomb in the jungles of northern Borneo. Its mouth carefully stitched shut, an unknown language tattooed across its wizened forehead, the Head of Savakor possesses strange powers. Unsuspecting Oscar is about to be offered the revenge he has dreamed of, and terrifying power he could never have imagined...but at what price?' (Source: author's website.)
