A new tale of suspense from the bestselling author of )Lady Of Hay( and )On The Edge Of Darkness(, set in mysterious Egypt, where past and present elide.
Recently divorced, Anna Coburn decides to cheer herself up by retracing
a journey her great grandmother made in the nineteenth century: a Nile
cruise from Luxor to the Valley of the Kings. Anna carries with her on
the voyage two mementoes of her great-grandmother Louisa: an ancient Egyptian
scent bottle, and the diary of that original Nile cruise, which has lain
unread for a hundred years. As she follows in Louisa's footsteps, Anna
discovers in the diary the chilling secret of the scent bottle and is pursued
by the same terrifying spectres as her great grandmother.
