The Seventh Scroll - Wilbur Smith
The Seventh Scroll. Nearly four thousand years old. A fading legacy from beyond the grave. Within it lie the clues to a fabulous treasure from an almost forgotten time . . .
Duraid Al Simmu and his beautiful half-English, half-Egyptian wife, Royan, were the first to discover the tomb of Queen Lostris. And with it the scrolls in which the wily Taita recorded the burial of Pharaoh Mamose with all his vast treasure.
But as their present-day search moves from the Nile to the uplands of Ethiopia, a savage battle begins, to unlock the Pharaoh's secrets. For others will stop at nothing to gain the prize as their own.
When Duraid is brutally murdered and their research notes stolen, Royan is forced to seek refuge in England. With eminent and aristocratic archaeologist Nicholas Quenton-Harper, she can pick up the pieces of her shattered life. With him she can find the courage to return to Ethiopia. For Duraid. For Tat. And for the dreams of an ancient Pharaoh . . .
Two years after the worldwide success of River God comes the latest thundering triumph from the master African storyteller. The Seventh Scroll is a magnificent adventure set in present-day Africa, yet indelibly linked to the world of River God nearly four thousand years ago.
