Publisher's Summary

In 1941, a hand grenade explodes in a Cairo bar, taking the life of Stern, a petty gunrunner and morphine addict. His death could easily go unnoticed as Rommel's tanks charge through the desert in an attempt to open the Middle East to Hitler's forces. Yet the mystery behind Stern's death is a top priority for intelligence experts. Master spies from three countries converge on Joe O'Sullivan Beare, who is closer to Stern than anyone, in an effort to unravel the disturbing puzzle. The search for the truth about Stern leads O'Sullivan Beare through the slums of Cairo to a decaying former brothel called the Hotel Babylon.

Nile casts big shadow in this smoky, dusty epic

Whittemore wrote the perfect World War II spy novel with this third installment of the Jerusalem quartet. Reading books I and II (Sinai Tapestry and Jerusalem Poker) helps but is not entirely necessary, though recommended because they are also great works of modern weird fiction. Hilarious and heartfelt and murderous by turns, this entry in the quartet is no different. The narrator is great and in some ways listening to the book is easier than reading it, as the text lacks quotations and some other bits of punctuation that can prove trying for some new to the series.
