Description

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 seances 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.

Professional reviews

"Alison Larkin engages listeners with a story that is part complex historical mystery, part charming romance, and part fascinating travel adventure. Twenty years ago, Jessie KentonÕs younger brother vanished. Her parents refused to speak of him and even brought a new boy home to replace him. Now, Timothy has also disappeared. Knowing that Timothy's fate is linked to her missing brother's, Jessie vows to find him at any cost. Though her narration doesnÕt always convey the tension and fear that surround each character, Larkin captures the young Jessie beautifully and tackles the many different accents and viewpoints in this book with obvious pleasure. SheÕs especially adept with Georgie, JessieÕs troubled brother, whose unique perspective and emotionality are utterly fascinating. B.E.K. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
