Overview
1912 London. Jessie Kenton hears her young brother, Georgie, scream in the middle of the night and wakes up the next morning to find him gone. Her parents never speak of him again.

1932. Twenty years later, Jessie is haunted by the same nightmare. Her other brother, Timothy, has inexplicably vanished from her parents' home. Wracked by guilt because of her failure to ever find Georgie, and convinced that the two events must be related, she sets out on a quest to find Timothy. She plunges into a mysterious world of seances and mystics, nebulous clues and Egyptian artifacts.

With the help of a dashing and impoverished aristocrat, Sir Montague Chamford, Jessie follows the trail into the alien, swirling sands of the Egyptian desert. Amid the ancient intrigue and blistering heat, a powerful romance sparks between Jessie and Monty. But they must first confront the demons of Jessie's past--and reveal the dark secrets that threaten not only Timothy's life but theirs as well.

At age seven, Jessie Kenton’s upper-middle-class London world revolved around her emotionally disturbed younger brother, Georgie. One night, with no explanation, their parents took Georgie away, “replacing” him with an orphan boy named Timothy, whom they had adopted. After the initial pain of separation, Jessie gradually warmed to Timothy, but never forgot Georgie. Twenty years later, in 1932, Timothy, now an up-and-coming archaeologist, has disappeared, leaving behind cryptic clues for Jessie taken from their favorite Sherlock Holmes novels. She quickly deduces that he’s in Egypt and leaves for Cairo to try and track him down. With Egypt shaking off the last footholds of British colonialism and artifact smugglers lurking in the shadows, Jessie faces danger at every turn. What’s more, she doesn’t yet know that Timothy has forged a strange, but durable, bond with Georgie, and that finding answers to one brother’s disappearance will lead to a new understanding of what happened to the other. Furnivall laces this fast-paced historical adventure with surprisingly poignant interludes that ultimately connect to the family mystery at its heart. There are a few awkward plot twists, and a largely superfluous romantic subplot, but that won’t keep readers from connecting deeply with the Kenton siblings.
