The Crosses--high-spirited Elizabeth and her brilliant Professor of the Occult husband, Simon--find themselves, along with Jack Wells, in 1920 Cairo on a special assignment for the Council for Temporal Studies. It seems like a simple enough mission---find a missing pocket watch and bring it back to the present. The only problem is, they're not the only ones looking.
With danger lurking around every corner, Simon and Elizabeth race against a shadowy foe who is after far more than just a watch. The price for success this time just might be their lives.

Really enjoyed the book
I couldn't put it down, read it in two days.
Seriously?!?!! Absolutely loved this book! She has done it again! Simon and Elizabeth head off on another whirlwind adventure, this time in Egypt. Some of characters from previous stories are mentioned but we are introduced to some new ones as well...(MORE Diana please!!!!) although this is book #6 I feel like it could stand alone because the author gives u recap on some things without dragging it out so a new fan won't be lost and us who have read from the beginning aren't bored. Simon and Elizabeth are absolutely an adorable couple but it's not all mushy either. Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!
