LOOKING FOR FATHER is the first in the Meira series of stories in which MEIRA MCMAHON, a sexy super heroine with an incredible memory, comes out. It can be likened to the original Superman, or Batman Begins.
Seething at the humiliation of her lover's deceit she goes first to Cairo, where she is implicated in a hideous murder and meets SIR WILLIAM SAINT THOMAS HOUGHTON, once a senior officer in the British Army. Sir William befriends her, and helps her escape the clutches of COLONEL ZADOC of the Cairo Police. In what starts out as a breathless run from the local cops she begins an epic journey of heart wrenching realizations, and personal discovery.
While hiding by day, and traveling the Nile at night, she meets Soteira, a Nubian woman whose wonderful jewels are thousands of years old, but could only be made using clever solar techniques.
In modern, war torn, Iraq she also learns of the Ancients' use of the ziggurats, and is rescued by THOR, a professional killer, when she uncovers the once secret process for creating synthetic gems.
