Set in present-day Africa, yet indelibly to the world of River God nearly four thousand years ago, The Seventh Scroll is another magnificent adventure from a master storyteller. A fading legacy from beyond the grave, the Seventh Scroll holds the clues to a fabulous treasure from an almost forgotten time. Duraid Al Simmu and his beautiful half-English, half-Egyptian wife, Royan, were the first to discover the tomb of Queen Lostris. And with it the scrolls in which the wily Taita recorded the burial of Pharaoh Mamose with all his vast treasure. Their search moves from the Nile to the uplands of Ethiopia, and savage battle begins to unlock the Pharaoh's secrets. For other will stop at nothing to gain the prizes as their own. When Duraid is brutally murdered, Royan is forced to seek refuge in England. With eminent archaeologist Nicholas Quenton-Harper, she can pick up the pieces of her shattered life and return to Ethiopia. For Duraid. For Taita. And for the dreams of an ancient Pharoah...
