Twenty years later, Jessie is haunted by the same nightmare. Her other brother, Timothy, has inexplicably vanished from her parents' home. Wracked by guilt because of her failure to ever find Georgie, and convinced that the two events must be related, she sets out on a quest to find Timothy. She plunges into a mysterious world of séances and mystics, nebulous clues and Egyptian artifacts. With the help of a dashing and impoverished aristocrat, Sir Montague Chamford, Jessie follows the trail into the alien, swirling sands of the Egyptian desert.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The edge-of-your-seat action will grab your attention from the very first page. Just when readers think they have it figured out, the author throws them for yet another loop, and the character of Georgie brings a fresh and interesting take to the plot. Furnivall immerses the reader in an intricately woven adventure filled with mystery, intrigue, and romance, and heartwarming, endearing characters, contrasting the harsh reality of old-world Egyptian culture.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

Author Bio: Kate Furnivall

Kate Furnivall didn’t set out to be a writer; it sort of grabbed her by the throat when she discovered the story of her grandmother—a White Russian refugee who fled from the Bolsheviks down into China. That extraordinary tale inspired her first book, The Russian Concubine. From then on, she was hooked. Furnivall is now the New York Times bestselling author of more than ten novels, among them The White Pearl and The Italian Wife. Her books have been translated into more than twenty languages.
