Scepter of the Nile by Ross Homer
Book 1: The Scepter
This adventure begins over eight thousand years ago and continues to this day. What does the first queen of Egypt have in common with archeologists from both Ankara and Tel Aviv and a private investigator from Houston, Texas? And Cleopatra? What has she to do with this?
What they have in common is a box. A simple metal box that was meant to stay hidden forever.
There are tomb raiders and artifact thieves who would do anything to make the box theirs. They will kill and torture just to claim it. What is in this box that is so alluring?
Peter Carpenter and Eliana Amendola set out to find the answer. They will face murderers, thieves, kidnappers and a breathtaking yacht. They will travel from Houston to London to Tel Aviv and then Hillsboro, TX in pursuit of this mysterious metal box.
