By Jenny Ashcroft

Published Jun 2017


The shores of Alexandria, 1891


Olivia Sheldon has travelled across the world to marry a man she does not love. Reluctant to leave England but coerced into the marriage, Olivia’s reward is being reunited with her estranged sister, Clara. Her punishment is falling impossibly and illicitly in love with the enigmatic Captain Edward Bertram.


Then one scorching day Clara is abducted from Alexandria’s busiest street. Desperate to find her sister – and the truth about her disappearance – Olivia becomes embroiled in Egypt’s shadowy underworld, risking both her life and future with Edward. Because, determined as Olivia is to find Clara, there are others who will stop at nothing to conceal what’s become of her . . .
