Hidden deep beneath Manhattan lies a warren of tunnels, sewers, and galleries, mostly forgotten by those who walk the streets above. There lies the ultimate secret of the Museum Beast. When two grotesquely deformed skeletons are found deep in the mud off the Manhattan shoreline, museum curator Margo Green is called in to aid the investigation. Margo must once again team up with police lieutenant D'Agosta and FBI agent Pendergast, as well as the brilliant Dr. Frock, to try and solve the puzzle. The trail soon leads deep underground, where they will face the awakening of a slumbering nightmare.

Professional reviews

"Dick Hill's reading of this fascinating sequel to THE RELIC builds the suspense and horror. Two skeletons locked in a bony embrace are found deep in the mud off Manhattan's shoreline. Abnormalities in the skeleton point to "Mbwun," or the Museum Monster's, return. From FBI Pendergast's Southern drawl to the New York accent of D'Agosta, Hill's portrayal of each character is complete and easily identifiable. The production technique of changing the vocal quality when a character "thinks" rather than "speaks" is used to good effect here. While this will surely be a regional hit, horror and mystery fans will enjoy this tale, as well. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
