Penguin Putnam
An accomplished Egyptologist, Carla Day's affectionate-but-confused elderly father now lives in a fusion of past and present at an upscale assisted living facility. Then a string of suspicious events unravels at the home, and Carla, hoping to keep a close eye on her dad, takes a job there. But management has one condition: Spy for us, figure out who's doing this, and you and your father can stay...

Soon, terrible things happen-and Carla's father rambles not only about Egypt, but also about a dead woman on the nearby beach. The answer may lie in an ancient Egyptian tomb. Or maybe it's somewhere further-buried deep in the recesses of a brilliant old man's memory.

Baker & Taylor
Accomplished Egyptologist Carla Day turns sleuth to investigate a series of suspicious events at the upscale assisted living facility that houses her confused elderly father, going undercover at the home where she uncovers a terrifying plot that could be linked to an ancient Egyptian tomb.

Green Beach Manor, set on the jagged cliffs of the California coast, calls itself "A Colony for Independently Functioning Adults." It costs a pretty penny - and Carla Day is confident that her affectionate-but-confused elderly father is getting the best care there. Formerly an accomplished Egyptologist, he now lives in a fusion of past and present. The staff hasn't a clue what he's ranting about - and they're ready to send him to what they privately call No Hope House.
Then a string of suspicious events unravels. A fire starts inexplicably in the beauty parlor, and some drugs go missing. Carla, hoping to keep a close eye on her dad, lands a job as an aide at the Manor. But management has one condition: Spy for us, figure out who's doing this - and you and your father can stay...
Soon, a guest swallows glass hidden in her food. An employee dies an eerie death. And Carla's father begins rambling not only about Egyptian pyramids, but also about a dead woman on the nearby beach. The answer may lie an ancient Egyptian tomb. Or maybe it's somewhere further - in the deep recesses of a brilliant old man's memory.
