Publisher's Summary

It is 1942, and civilization as the world knows it teeters on its edge. Nazi Germany stands at the height of its power. Anton Rider is now a desert commando engaged in obliterating Nazi air bases and petrol dumps. His old friend, Ernst von Decken, a German soldier of fortune, has become the enemy. Meanwhile, in North Africa, the brilliant General Rommel's panzers threaten the Suez Canal, the oil fields of the Middle East, and the trade route to Asia. Alliances shift, loyalties deceive, espionage thrives, and danger lies as much in the dark corners of Cairo as it does in the desert night. And at a barge on the Nile, at the Cataract Café, under the watchful eye of its proprietor, Olivio Alaved, Egypt frames its destiny.

What the Critics Say

"Exotic adventure fiction doesn't come much better." (Publishers Weekly)
"A World War II page-turner that's part Masterpiece Theater, part Raiders of the Lost Ark, part Casablanca." (Washington Post)
"Nonstop action, eroticism and intrigue...take place in [a] terrain of swashbuckling authenticity. Romantic and eventful...a satisfying dose of wartime action, private revenge, and seething passion." (New York Times)

Slow plot. Narrators voice is tough to listen to. Try something else.

Gripping North Africa WWII

Blood, intrigue, romance, and justice intermingle in this historical novel. The region's character is brought out by several nations colliding in the sands of the dessert. Rider (the star of the series) becomes a tragic hero, with pain and courage overcoming adversity in his ever tragic life. Tough not to get absorbed in the narration. Recommended.
