Be careful about what you might win in a card game. It just might be deadly!
Ethan Gage won an Egyptian medallion in a card game. He is warned that the medallion is cursed. It does not take long for Ethan to be attacked by thieves. He now realizes that they are after the medallion. Things go quickly downhill and Ethan is framed for the murder of a prostitute.
