(From the publisher):
A fading papyrus, nearly four thousand years old. Within it lie the clues to a fabulous treasure from an almost-forgotten time... a riddle that becomes a savage battle across the unforgiving terrain of North Africa.
When her husband is brutally murdered, beautiful half-English, half-Egyptian Royan Al Simmu is forced to seek refuge in England. With eminent archaeologist Nicholas Quenton-Harper, she can pick up the pieces of her shattered life and find the courage to return to Ethiopia. For Duraid. For the long-dead slave Taita. And for the dreams of an ancient Pharaoh...Because others will stop at nothing to claim the prize as their own.
