As part of the popular Jocelyn Osgood series, Geoffrey McSkimming presents this adventure of the ancient hammer relic that turns out to be much more than just that. All of the titles in McSkimming's imaginative children's series follow archaeologist Cairo Jim and his friend Jocelyn Osgood, a flight attendant and sometimes pilot, on their explorations. The author himself performs this audiobook. He brings an energy that only an author can to his own words. While having fun with his character voices, McSkimming transports young listeners to his fanciful world of excitement.
The third Jocelyn Osgood adventure. While stopping over in Norway, Joan Twilight buys a rusty old hammer for her friend Jocelyn Osgood (the well-known flight attendant with Valkyrian Airways and 'good friend' of Cairo Jim), whom she knows has a minor lust for antiquities. With advice from Cairo Jim, Jocelyn and Joan seek out Professor Kurt Snerdforst, a local expert on things now forgotten. Jocelyn decides to return the hammer to an isolated location in Norway's cold, northern regions. Slowly, however, the shadows of an ancient world begin to creep across their journey, as the hammer fragment proves to be much more than just a worthless, dusty relic.
