But I still love visiting an archaeological dig any chance I get, and I love reading about new discoveries, especially concerning Egyptology.
This might be part of the reason I so enjoy Vicki Pitts Caine's writing, notably her books Cairo and The Tempering Agent. She makes Egypt come alive. It begins with the archaeological aspect to her story, but she ramps up the action with adventure, suspense and romance.
In Cairo, Liz McCran heads to Egypt searching for the answer to her friends' disappearance. She is thrown into an exotic world of intrigue and mystery, with riddles to solve before she can reach her goal.
In The Tempering Agent, Priscilla is hot on the heels of a murderer and artifact trafficker.
This is the review I posted for Ms. Caine's suspenseful novel, The Tempering Agent. "Vicki Caine's Egypt has been beautifully staged. She lets you hear the sounds of Cairo, smell and taste the exotic food and feel the desert heat. Her research shows through in her attention to archaeological detail. Now, as to the romance-It is woven through the suspense masterfully. The tension between Priscilla and Donnie turns the pages by itself to the final resolution. Loved this story!"
