A novel by

Was it murder... or something else

Tamara Hoyland is working undercover as a tour guide in Egypt. She's been sent to keep an eye on Janet Macmillan, a government scientist whose research could threaten British security.

The group is a real motley crew - including a television star, a failed poet, a businessman, an archaeologist and the scientist herself. But by the time they reach their excavation on a remote island, two of the group are dead.

Are the deaths related? And is there more than one killer? With ransom notes and double identities, this won't be an easy crime to solve.

Praise for Death Beyond the Nile

"A mix of the type of murder mystery and brilliant characterisation which makes Ms Mann one of today's foremost crime writers." Harriet Waugh, The Spectator

Praise for Jessica Mann

''Instinct with history, enthrallingly intricate, this is a stylish mixture of period pastiche and a lethal twist-and-turn treasure hunt. Mann rings the maximum entertainment from each, and her lively and literate Tamara Hoyland is fast becoming crime fiction's most beguiling sleuthess." The Times

"Funeral Sites is engrossingly told and grips from start to finish. How often one looks in vain for distinction. Here one finds it." Christopher Wordsworth, The Observer

"A sophisticated, high tension crime novel, deserving all the adjectives usually applied to Jessica Mann - intelligent, witty, sardonic" John West, Sunday Times
