Age 12-16. 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 .
