*****

'I'll find him. I will.'

It's 1932 and 27-year-old Jessica is living London life to the full when her younger brother Tim, an ancient Egyptian archaeology expert, goes missing. Teaming up with Sir Montague Chamford - who can resist neither a damsel in distress nor the chance of adventure - Jessie vows to find her beloved brother.

Following the clues Tim has left in his wake, Jessie and Monty head to Egypt. In the relentless heat of the desert, romance is kindled between them, but danger also lurks in every shadow. And then Jessie starts to wonder how much Monty really knows about her brother's disappearance . . .

A dramatic story of adventure, excitement, love and romance can all be found in the SHADOWS ON THE NILE

Review quote

Kate Furnivall's latest novel offers intelligent historical fiction at its finest . . . Richly satisfying and superbly written, it has enough adventure, excitement and romance to quench any appetite. However, its real appeal lies in its skilful characterisation, particularly that of Georgie, Jessica's abandoned brother whose autistic view of the world is both persuasively and poignantly conveyed * Good Book Guide * Furnivall laces this fast-paced historical adventure with surprisingly poignant interludes that ultimately connect to the family mystery at its heart * Publishers Weekly * One character is particularly beautiful - Jessica's lost brother Georgie who, it is suggested, has autism. His view on the world is very sensitively shown and he turns out to be the hero of the piece * The Lady * This world famous author . . . has a masterly touch when it comes to character and plot * Sidmouth Herald * Atmospheric and intriguing * Woman & Home * Perfect holiday escape material * Candis *

About Kate Furnivall

Kate Furnivall didn't set out to be a writer. It sort of grabbed her by the throat when she discovered the story of her grandmother - a White Russian refugee who fled from the Bolsheviks down into China. That extraordinary tale inspired her first book, The Russian Concubine. From then on, she was hooked.

Kate is the author of eight novels, including The Russian Concubine, The White Pearl and The Italian Wife. Her books have been translated into more than twenty languages and have been on the New York Times Bestseller list.
