MURDER AND MYSTERY IN THE UTOPIA OF EGYPT

SCORPION SCHEME
DEATH AND DANGER ON THE NILE
Hope Sze Medical Crime 8

Published by Wildtree Press, the book is available worldwide in digital and print across all platforms!

PHARAOHS' TOMBS. ANCIENT MYTHS. MODERN-DAY MURDER

A picture containing text, person Description automatically generated

Dr. Hope Sze doesn't need a free trip to Egypt.

She can't afford the flight to Cairo, or the cruise down the Nile, so she'd keep studying in Canada-except her fiancé, Dr. John Tucker, yearns to patrol the pyramids and confront the curse on King Tutankhamun's tomb.

So, when a company offers them both a free stay in Cairo in exchange for a month's work in an emergency department, Tucker lobbies for a pre-honeymoon in the Valley of Kings and Queens, investigating the windswept temple of Hatshepsut, or scuba diving in the Red Sea.

Instead, within 90 minutes of arrival, Hope drops to her knees outside the Grand Egyptian Museum, desperate to save a now-comatose 87-year-old Johannesburg man who'd raved about Kruger and treasure after receiving a nail through his skull.

Tucker fixates on their one chance at the legendary Kruger Millions, a rumored fortune that many believe lies secretly stowed somewhere in South Africa.

Since their combined student debt load totals half a million dollars, Tucker can't pass up the possibility of a treasure trove in buried gold.

Hope launches into her first mystery based in a birthplace of human civilization.

Where the evil god Set battled righteous Horus and Isis in an 80-year war.

Where wealth and power clash with political revolution.

Where Antony fell in love with Cleopatra.

Where Hope and Tucker must outwit, or fall prey, to a ruthless criminal mastermind.

Praise for the Hope Sze series

FAIRY TALES ARE FOR ALL AGES

 IT'S NATIONAL TELL A FAIRY TALE DAY


The history of Fairy Tales is rooted in truth, but also, meant to entertain.  Often told by travelers or in the manner we would associate with 'campfire tales', fairy tales are also a means to help guide children into proper behavior.  Oral histories, myths, and legends, these were retold stories often intended to teach a lesson or moral desired by society.  They often had different renditions depending on the geographical area you visited due to cultural differences, but mostly rang the same overall.  And, with time, they grew into more mystical and fantastical tellings, with magic, mythological creatures, and more.

Today, let's enjoy the tradition of great storytelling by indulging in some of the most beloved fairy tales as well as finding some new ones!


Here is a great blog post that might interest you:
