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 and B&N. 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!
