Liz McCran and Donnie Barnes travel to Cairo, Egypt, in search of Addie and Gary Wright, who were asked to deliver a mysterious envelope. Within days of their arrival, the couple has vanished. When Liz locates the Wright’s contact, Mr. Moustafa, she receives the first of several riddles.
Rayhan Shenouda, an Egyptian working at the American Embassy, agrees to help but his desire is to win Liz’s heart. Following his traditional customs, and much to her surprise, he proposes within days of their meeting.
Will the Wrights be found? Can Rayhan and Liz’s love withstand an inevitable collision of cultures and customs? Or will it all end at the hands of a nomad insurgent named Ahmad?
Reviews: Keep the fast pace but lose the nasty apostasy of “The DaVinci Code”, add a double portion of romance, spice with many exotic Egyptian details and Voila! you’ve got the recipe for “Cairo.” The characters are nicely drawn, each with his or her own distinctive voice. I loved the way Pitts-Caine seamlessly wove together a love story beset with cultural collisions and a spine-tingling adventure full of unexpected twists and turns. I checked five stars, but really this book deserves more. “Cairo” is absolutely I-can’t-put-it-down wonderful! Carlene
I am a huge fan of Author Pitts-Caine…. Once again she delivered a great, exciting and easy read! Look forward to her next book! D.P.
