Sirocco, Storm over Land and Sea
by Inge H. Borg
Morsi-followers storm Jabari El-Masri’s Cairo Museum finding undocumented tablets. Dr El-Masri insists they are for a US exhibit. Boston Egyptologist Naunet Klein is asked to clean and decipher them in Cairo.
She and her scientist colleagues become embroiled in Egypt’s political upheaval as well as an audacious theft that culminates in her kidnapping by men dealing in illicit ancient treasures.
