The edge-of-your-seat action will grab your attention from the very first page. Just when readers think they have it figured out, the author throws them for yet another loop, and the character of Georgie brings a fresh and interesting take to the plot. Furnivall immerses the reader in an intricately woven adventure filled with mystery, intrigue and romance and heartwarming, endearing characters, contrasting the harsh reality of old-world Egyptian culture.

In 1912, Jessie’s brother Georgie is stolen in the middle of the night. Much to Jessie’s dismay, her parents refuse to discuss it and won’t allow her to speak of him. The next morning, Timothy is asleep in her brother’s bed and she is told he is her new sibling. Two decades later, he too has vanished so Jessie sets out on a quest to find him. Her journey takes her to the Egyptian desert. Much like Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, she collects several companions along the way who all serve to deepen the mystery, enhance her travels and decipher the puzzle of her brother’s disappearance. What Jessie doesn’t realize is that her long-lost brother Georgie is at the heart of the riddle. (BERKLEY, Oct., 434 pp., $15.00)
