Publisher's Summary

Mother Nile is the story of Si, the American-born son of an Irish father and Egyptian mother, who goes on a journey through the winding streets of the City of the Dead to solve a half-century-old mystery. When his mother makes an urgent plea on her deathbed, Si knows that he must make the journey to Egypt to find out the truth about his long-lost half-sister, conceived during his mother's affair with King Farouk. Hunted by those who would do anything to keep the past in the past, Si finds help from a young woman who captures his heart. He leaves the City of the Dead a changed man. This work of historical fiction takes listeners on an adventure brimming with suspense, intrigue, and romance.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend it! Its adventurous, with rich characters and an intriquing setting.


What did you like best about this story?

The descriptive aspects of Cairo's teeming life, exploring the City of the Dead. Often, for me, it takes longer to empathize with not only the characters but story and action. Mother Nile, I felt pulled in from the first paragraph


Have you listened to any of Colin Fluxman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not. I liked the "mellow" British accent. An easy voice to listen to. Skill at narrative flow. He evokes emotions well, excitement, fear, etc. Very good with this effort. Though I'm not an expert, I thought he did a fantastic job with pronunciations.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Searching for lost family in Egypt


Any additional comments?

I've listened to a half dozen or so of Warren Adler's works. This is the best one... so far. Thanks for the opportunity to review it!This review copy audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost. Which I can only assume was voluntary on their part. I am happy to give my honest review of it. I think I'm suppose to mention how reviewing this was voluntary on my part too.

A very meaning filled story!

I enjoyed the historical aspects of this book. I have read other books about Egypt and find it a fascinating place. This book brings Egypt into contemporary times. The story circles around the ideas of what we see as modern, superior life and then shows us the alternative life's with its values. He book starts out at a fast pace, and I ended up going back and listening a second time, as I felt I had missed things. I did that in another part of the book where my attention was adrift. I enjoyed this book. It was well written and had a satisfying ending.
