Review: Covert in Cairo


Cairo. December 1917.

Following a tip-off from notorious spy Fredrick Fredricks, Fiona Figg and Kitty Lane of British Intelligence find themselves in the hustle and bustle of Egypt. But ancient mummies aren’t the only bodies buried in the tombs of Cairo.

When a young French archeologist is found dead in a tomb in the desert with his head bashed in, and an undercover British agent goes missing, the threat moves closer to home.

As they dig deeper, soon Fiona and Kitty uncover a treasure trove of suspects, including competing excavators, jealous husbands, secret lovers, and belligerent spies! Fiona wonders if the notorious Fredrick Fredricks could be behind the murders? Or is the plot even more sinister?

One thing is clear – If Fiona and Kitty can’t catch the killer, they might end up sharing a sarcophagus with Nefertiti.

With humor as dry as the Arabian desert, and pacing as fast as a spitting camel, Fiona and Kitty are back in another sparkling adventure, this time in WW1 Egypt.

Rating: 5-stars


Covert in Cairo Kelly Oliver is the second installment to a wonderful series. This book is for all fans of Jessica Thatcher, Nancy Drew, Stephanie Plum, and Miss Fisher. I love the duo featured in this series. Fiona is older, easy going, and funny. Her charge and fellow companion is the young woman, Kitty. Kitty is just as smart as Fiona and sometimes plays tricks on Fiona. I love how their relationship. Also, Kelly Oliver has a way with words. I enjoy following the women as they went on another adventure in Cairo. The World War I time period is such a fascinating period that went well with the characters. Plenty of action and humor like a James Bond movie but on the lighter side. Bold, daring, and fun-Covert in Cairo is a must-read book!
