- In stock
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)
