I have just this second finished The Sands of Sakkara - absolutely brilliant. The atmosphere of Egypt - particularly Cairo - is recreated superbly and the underlying sadnesss of the story - of Halder & Weaver's love for Rachel Stern is truly touching as well as the tantalising blend of fact and fiction.
