From the terrorist camps of Mozambique to the cloistered halls of Cambridge and beyond, The Flamingo Room moves with breathtaking speed to its violent conclusion back where it all began, in a remote corner of Zimbabweís great game reserve of Ghona re zhou, place of the elephants. In The Flamingo Room, fiction entwines closely with fact, and is the first in a series of novels by Jerold Richert to explore the myths surrounding Zimbabweís ancient ruins, their origin, and controversial link to King Solomon and the Phoenicians. It had been called the archaeological myth of the century but to Chris Ryan, a part-time soldier, tracker, pilot and owner of a game sanctuary, the age-old controversy surrounding the origin of the Zimbabwe ruins was the last thing on his mind. Then his young wife is murdered by terrorists and the trail reaches across the world. To find the killers, he seeks help from an eccentric museum curator and hieroglyphics expert in Cairo.
