Horrible deaths, and Prince Inebny's betrayal of his father, color a passionate love story of Egypt 5000 years ago. Pharaoh Sahu II has taken as one of his queens the girl Kahwet, the only girl young Lord Akaba could love. Akaba serves Pharaoh and his queen with loyalty and respect yearning for the gentle touch of the young queen. Prince Inebny brings death to Pharaoh's palace then mounts Egypt's throne, launching a reign of terror. Interlaced with the tale of the ancient Egyptians is a modern day story that plays out for Greg Kimble when Frankie Peterson, the woman whom he loves, married his best friend Pietro, a wealthy Italian. Like the Egyptian, Greg Kimble maintains a close relationship with the friends, all the while dogged by his longing for Frankie.
