About the Book

When an Arab girl finds herself in love with the boy friend of an American Jewess, the result is a pair of psychotic and dangerous women. Against the backdrop of the assassination of the Egyptian leader, Anwar el Sadat in 1981, the women strive for revenge over more than each other. One joins the Israeli Army but her educational and physical skills take her to the Mossad, where she becomes a skilled agent. Even then, though, her paranoia leads to an audacious Israeli theft of the mask and gold coffin of the boy king, Tutankhamun, together with other priceless relics from the Cairo Museum. The police chase involves governments as the treasure hunt crosses Africa, America, Eastern and Western Europe, the Middle East and England. Police in three Continents have to battle against the ingenuity of professional spies and assassins as well as the activities of the Arabic girl’s pursuit of her hated rival. And while all that is happening another love story begins amid the murderous efforts of unscrupulous villains on all sides – all complicated by two women whose pathological hatred dominates their every act – not mention a brilliant instinctive Egyptian detective who believes in creative thinking – to the chagrin of the stiff upper lip senior desk trained copper in London.
