This is the first in a series of adventure novels set against exotic backgrounds in the years between the World Wars.

The central character in this series is Rupert Winfield, a young archaeology graduate from Oxford University. His speciality is Ancient Egypt and, following graduation, he finds employment with a well-known travel company, keen to develop and expand their existing portfolio of travel destinations, following the recent catastrophy of the First World War.

A bit of a loner, we first meet Winfield as the resident tour guide on one of the Company's Nile steamers, where he meets one of the passengers, who will go on to play an extremely important role in his future life.

The purpose of this series is to provide you, the reader, with a good adventure story, coupled with more than just a dash of historical accuracy, against the backdrop of historical sites in Egypt, the Middle East and Ethiopia - amongst other venues.

My hope is that, after you've read these books, you'll want to go off on your own adventure and visit the sites described in the novels.

You will be surprised at what you can learn in the process !
