1912, London. Jessie Kenton hears her young brother, Georgie, scream in the middle of the night and wakes up the next morning to find him gone. Her parents never speak of him again. 1932. 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. Amid the ancient intrigue and blistering heat, a powerful romance sparks between Jessie and Monty. 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. Download and start listening now!

About the Author

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.
