"Wildsmith is a master of world-building. In her hands, 1930s Egypt is a truly visceral place seen through the eyes of a curious and vulnerable child, where every sound and scent comes alive on the page. Throughout, Wildsmith walks a delicate line between cinema and literature in her scene descriptions, ensuring that the pace is never slowed, and yet every observation is palpable. All aboard for an uncommonly satisfying murder mystery."

Murder and mayhem abound in this thrilling return to the 1930s as a young woman uncovers her own connection to the power and magic of her ancient Egyptian ancestors.

Verity is swept away from England to Egypt when her father, a professor at the British Museum, is assigned to discover the final resting place of Nefertiti. This fascinating world helps Verity feel a connection to her dead Egyptian mother like never before. However, her newfound home is rife with mysterious murders. Will Verity be able to discover the source of the violence that surrounds her before it's too late?

If you enjoy Agatha Christie's murder mysteries, the mysticism of Sherlock Holmes stories, the descriptive writing style of Daphne du Maurier, or uncovering the secrets of ancient Egypt, you'll adore this riveting story.

Although Verity Easton is a standalone novel, one beloved crossover character from M. Rebecca Wildsmith's first novel, Hattie Vavaseur, makes a cameo appearance!
