This time Myrl and Faye are in the Middle East with T. E. Lawrence and Gertrude Bell, "The Queen of the Desert."
Meet the woman who warned the British and French governments what would happen if the promise of self governance evaporated. The woman who mapped the Arabian Desert by herself. The woman who gave Iraq her name. And now the same woman has gone missing.
In a world of kidnapping and illegal mining comes a tale that puts Faye face to face with a predator from her past and Myrl with a woman nearly as imperious as she is.
