    Duraid Ai Simmu and his beautiful wife, Royan, were the first to discover the tomb of Queen Lostris and, with it, the scrolls that record the burial of Pharaoh Mamose with all his vast treasure. But as their present-day search for the treasure moves from the Nile to the uplands of Ethiopia, a savage battle begins. For others will stop at nothing to claim the prize as their own.

    what happened to the story?

    more detail. The details of Taitas riddles were t otally missing. Without these details the story was dull.

    Hidden away in the deserts of North Africa, Taita has passed the years since the death of his beloved Queen Lostris in prayer and study.

    Egypt is struck by a series of terrible plagues that cripple the kingdom, and then the ultimate disaster occurs: the Nile fails. The waters that nourish and sustain the land dry up. Something catastrophic is taking place in the distant and totally unexplored depths of Africa from where the mighty river springs. In desperation, Pharaoh sends for Taita, the only man who might be able to find the source of the Nile and discover the cause of all their woes.

    Time for Taitha to retire?

    Wilbur usually manages to keep a story going and make it exciting - this one is obvious and lacks conviction. Maybe I've read too many of his books an..Show More »
