The Betrayal

by E. Phillips Oppenheim

Excellent of its type. Of course, it is awash with the aristocrats and private incomes typical of the time, but don't be put off by that!
The plot is well constructed and the characters superbly drawn. What I liked most about it most was the lack of empty jingo, and the fact that the characters are not drawn in black and white. Even several of the villains have their redeeming features.
Pacey and written in a clean and surprisingly modern style, I read it in two sittings.

Author of the Day

A. W. Exley
When A.W. Exley isn't deciphering hieroglyphs or riding her horse sidesaddle, she is thinking up plots for her next best-seller. Nefertiti's Heart is a beautiful mixture of all Exley's passions in life, set in a Steampunk society, featuring a very Egyptian theme. As our Author of the Day, she chats with us about her fascination with Egypt, why she picked an alternate universe for Nefertiti and how she shaped the book.
