I've been to Egypt twice, and love Egyptian history, and these made me really feel as if I were in Egypt, with a great sense of setting - even though the the fort of Buhen, which is the setting for several of the books, is now underwater due to the Aswan dam.
The five are:
Flesh of the God - which is a prequel
A Face Turned Backward - #2
A Curse of Silence - #4
A Cruel Deceit - #6
A Path of Shadows - #7 (if you don't count the prequel, which was published in between #6 and #7)
search on Kobo
search on Amazon US
They're also $.99 at Sony
. I read/owned the paperbacks years ago and enjoyed them; I'm thrilled to get them as ebooks. Even better, I have gift cards for both Sony and B&N waiting to be used on non coupon-able books. I hope the remaining titles come to e-book form soon; I wonder if the $5.99 title would be coupon-able at Kobo with a short "trip"?
I love a good Egyptian mystery!
