Review: Cairo Caper – Barbara Silkstone
When Wendy Darlin decided to ditch her previous job, and follow her boyfriend, archaeologist Roger Jolley, to Egypt, she never imagined just how much her life would change. Granted, she’s had her own up’s and down’s, but they’re nothing compared to what she’s experiencing now. Roger’s going after Cleopatra and Mark Antony’s supposed tomb. The thought of finding their mystical resting place is mind-boggling, but also thrilling at the same time. Deep inside, she hopes Roger will find exactly what he’s looking for. If they can circumvent the many attempts on their lives, that is.
Dodging bullets, unexpected assassins, and Roger’s notorious ex-girlfriend, Wendy starts to wonder as to what she’s gotten herself into. Everywhere they go, danger follows their every wake. It’s obvious that someone doesn’t want them to find the tomb. The question is, why? What could possibly be buried there, aside from Cleopatra and her beloved, of course?
Determined to get the bottom of things, Wendy does her best to keep a level head through all she and Roger are going through. Though they’ve unwittingly picked up a few friends along way, they’re intent on seeing things through. It doesn’t matter that people keep trying to knock them down wherever they go. The tomb is waiting, and it’s secrets must be discovered, no matter the cost!
The third book in the Wendy Darlin series, Cairo Caper, will pull you in, and take you for an intense and never-ending ride. The action starts from the first page, and keeps going until the very end. Wendy and Roger find themselves in all sorts of situations, but they always come out on top somehow. Granted, the way they do so isn’t always conventional, but at least they find a silver lining beneath every dark cloud. I can’t wait to see what happens next in this quite intriguing series.
Available for purchase via the following retailers: Amazon.
Part-time tomb raider and full-time real estate broker, Wendy Darlin joins her lover, archaeologist Roger Jolley, in a quest for Cleopatra’s tomb. All they have to do is get from Cairo to the Temple of Taporisi Magna alive.
Armed only with a couple of hijacked ashtrays and faced with a trek across the blazing Sahara desert can Wendy out-maneuver Russian oligarchs, a dozen Dark Force mercenaries, and Roger’s chubby ex-girlfriend in time to find the tomb and seal it before chaos erupts in Egypt?
