Book: The Tempering Agent by Victoria Pitts Caine
|4.7 stars based on the 3 most helpful Amazon reviews|
Victoria Pitts Caineabout this book: My love of exotic gemstones is interwoven in the final book of my trilogy: The Tempering Agent. Each chapter begins with a short description of one of the twelve stones in the breastplate of the high priest.
My interest in ancient Egypt continues in the third novel and I extensively researched the ancient oasis at Siwa thought to be visited by both Cleopatra and Alexander the Great. They both sought advice from the Oracle. The fragments of the 4 B.C. Oracle's Temple still can be seen today.
The main characters take the same route across the Western Desert where the 50,000 strong army of Cambyses II, the first Persian ruler of Egypt, vanished.
The reader will be interested in the adventure and suspense in this novel in the pursuit of the antiquities trafficker and murderer and the impeding fear of the heroine that she's the bait in the catch.
One reviewer revealed: In The Tempering Agent, Laura Croft meets Indiana Jones, only with realism, romance, and good values.
