(From the publisher):
The death of Stern, an obscure gunrunner and morphine addict, in Cairo in 1942 awakens a very special interest on the part of Allied Intelligence. Rommel and his Afrika Corps are threatening to overrun Egypt, and the enigma of Stern's death may hold a secret that could decide the outcome of World War II. To unravel the mystery, Stern's friend Joe O'Sullivan Beare descends into the Cairo underworld -- then journeys into the past to uncover the shadowy network of a lost world.
