Book 11 in a series of chronological stand-alone plots.
April 1900, Egypt. Dr Watson and the Countess are recruited by Mycroft Holmes to investigate acts of espionage undermining the British effort in the Boer War. A renowned Egyptologist finds himself under Foreign Office scrutiny, all whilst trying to save the temple-island of Philae from the Aswan Dam's rising waters.
Sultry nights along the Nile, cruising paddle-steamers, and awe-inspiring hypaethral temples - what could be more romantic?
With Major Nash working undercover, our Colonel Moriarty en route to the Transvaal, and Sebastian Moran as gun-for-hire - with sabotage, fraud, murder, and the Khamsin itself... Forget romance!

About the Author
Anna Lord has long been fascinated by myth and metaphor, and the way they inform human thought. With an English and Philosophy degree focused on metaphysical poets and logical thinking there was only one creative avenue for her to follow: two rational detectives battling to make sense of a superstitious gas-lit world. Anna's Ukrainian background, coupled with a love for whodunnits, Victorian settings, and Gothic characters, inspires her literary world and makes the books a joy to write. The result is her new series: Watson and the Countess. www.facebook.com/annalordauthor www.twitter.com/CountessVarvara
