Ashalon is a professor of Egyptology at Cairo University. He is none too happy to learn that another American is coming to his country to dig among the ruins of his ancestors. He vows to make it difficult things difficult for this foreigner, who has been given permission by the Council of Antiquities...at least until he meets the American upstart, Corina Camden. Professor Camden is searching for mummified remains from the Twenty-first and Twenty-second dynasties, and she quickly captivates Ashalon. Nights Over Egypt is a story of archeological digs, rich culture and buried passion.
