From the Nile Delta to Paris and Zurich, Al Qaeda's pursuit of an Islamic treasure leaves a trail of blood…
Gavin Blake and his gregarious wife Jessica have embarked on a relaxing cruise up the Nile to celebrate his retirement and to fulfil her lifelong dream to visit Egypt. It’s already scorchingly hot on board their luxurious riverboat, and about to get much hotter when the two are drawn into a murderous web of intrigue and danger.
Their ship is attacked by terrorists, and the charismatic Canadian finds himself charged with a delicate and perilous mission to deliver a priceless Islamic relic. Fortunately he has made a new friend, a former U.S. Special Forces officer, whose unique talents prove invaluable as their odyssey begins.
Chased by both Interpol and a brutal Al Qaeda assassin, this high-paced thriller takes readers from the ancient land of the Pharaohs on a harrowing journey across Europe, from mountain passes in the Swiss Alps to the busy streets of Paris. Their tranquil cruise on the Nile is transformed into a desperate struggle to stay alive in an adventure that will change their lives forever.
