Plots, sub plots, and counter plots make this a novel packed with action. Its setting is Egypt, from Cairo to Khartum, and it has among its characters an American heiress fabulously rich; an attractive irish widow; a likable irish nobleman (who tells the story); a Salem school teacher seeing the world for the first time; an English army officer disguised as an Egyptian prince; a New York woman who thinks she is the reincarnation of Cleopatra; an American girl married to a Turk; an English baronet; and an American sculptor. There is plenty of guide book information for the serious reader, and, for the benefit of the more frivolous, four engagements are arranged among the assorted number of persons referred to above, with a report of another marriage that has taken place, so to speak, off stage.
