Die gefährliche Reise einer jungen Amerikanerin nach Rom und Ägypten
  Buecherei.das-Sarah | Jan 13, 2015 |
Para Lydia Harris, todo comenzó con una llamada telefónica desde Roma de su hermana Adele. Un saludo, una invitación para reunirse en Italia con ella, el anuncio del envío de un paquete... y el silencio. El paquete prometido era una cabeza de chacal en marfil. Una antigüedad egipcia, no excesivamente valiosa, llamada a conver-tirse en la clave de una intriga mortal que había de llevar a Lydia a Roma, y de allí a Egipto, en busca de su hermana. Todo ello y seguida de cerca por múltiples peligros que solo podrá sortear con ayuda de un enigmático árabe a cuyos secretos, cultura y forma de vida deberá, mal que le pese, amoldarse.

Book description
It's been four years since Lydia Harris last spoke to her elder sister, Adele. When Adele telephones from Rome and interrupts Lydia’s work as a nurse at the Santa Monica Emergency Hospital, she’s more than a little surprised—and curious.

Adele explains that she sent a parcel to Lydia, and after Lydia receives it, she must come to Rome at once. Disturbed by her sister’s cryptic message, Lydia is further puzzled when the parcel arrives containing a beautiful Egyptian gaming piece in the form of a jackal. When Lydia's apartment is suddenly burglarized, she’s astonished that the only thing stolen is the wrapping paper in which the jackal was mailed.

Deeply concerned about her sister's fate, Lydia determines to track her down, flying first to Rome and then to Cairo. But the deeper she becomes involved in her search, the further she leaves behind the comfortable world of her hospital and the undeclared love of a handsome doctor. Drawn into a lethal battle of wits, Lydia confronts murder, mysterious strangers, and death threats. But in a final confrontation in the Valley of the Kings, Lydia just might face her worst nightmare.
