A brilliant story of love, danger, courage and betrayal from the Sunday Times top ten bestselling author of The Russian Concubine

It's 1932 and 27-year-old Jessica is living London life to the full when her younger brother Tim, an ancient Egyptian archaeology expert, goes missing. Teaming up with Sir Montague Chamford - who can resist neither a damsel in distress nor the chance of adventure - Jessie vows to find her beloved brother.

Following the clues Tim has left in his wake, Jessie and Monty head to Egypt. In the relentless heat of the desert, a powerful romance sparks between them, but danger also lurks in every shadow. But they must first confront the demons of Jessie's past-and reveal the dark secrets that threaten not only Timothy's life but theirs as well. With a 'thrilling plot,' Shadows on the Nile is a 'breathtaking [work of] historical fiction.' (The Times)

MEDIA REVIEWS
Perfect holiday escape material * Candis *
Atmospheric and intriguing * Woman & Home *
This world famous author . . . has a masterly touch when it comes to character and plot * Sidmouth Herald *
One character is particularly beautiful - Jessica's lost brother Georgie who, it is suggested, has autism. His view on the world is very sensitively shown and he turns out to be the hero of the piece * The Lady *
Furnivall laces this fast-paced historical adventure with surprisingly poignant interludes that ultimately connect to the family mystery at its heart * Publishers Weekly *
Kate Furnivall's latest novel offers intelligent historical fiction at its finest . . . Richly satisfying and superbly written, it has enough adventure, excitement and romance to quench any appetite. However, its real appeal lies in its skilful characterisation, particularly that of Georgie, Jessica's abandoned brother whose autistic view of the world is both persuasively and poignantly conveyed * Good Book Guide *

“Writer's Block?”

I loved The White Pearl, but this book seemed to me to be thoroughly disjointed with superficial characters and fragmented writing. KF writes unbelievable stories which she makes believable and exciting but I... More
