Inge H. Borgabout this book: Sirocco, Storm over Land and Sea, is the second book of Inge H. Borg's Egyptian Series—although its story stands alone. The connection between this book and the first historical fiction novel, Khamsin, The Devil Wind of The Nile, are the golden Ancient Tablets.
After they had been lost in the sands during the dreaded Khamsin in 3080 BC, in the novel Sirocco, they are being rediscovered and translated by present-day Egyptologists. Their task is interrupted by the political unrest that gripped Egypt in mid-2012, causing the eminent Cairo Museum Director, Dr. Jabari El-Masri, to take drastic steps to save them from being melted down by those vying for new power.
During a perilous escape from the Red Sea to Crete, the Sirocco tosses not only the small sailboat headlong toward its fate, but it also seals the fate of the three Boston scientists, as well as another passenger, Edward Guernsey-Croc, a shady wheeler/dealer type from California. (You can get to know him even better in: Edward, Con Extraordinaire, also by Inge H. Borg.)
The year--and with it time--is running out. Will the ominous predictions of the golden tablets come to bear on our world?
