Covert in Cairo
by Kelly Oliver
April 24 - May 19, 2023 Virtual Book Tour
Ancient mummies aren’t the only bodies buried in the tombs of Cairo.
The notorious Fredrick Fredricks has lured Fiona to Egypt with a cryptic threat on the Suez Canal.
But when a cheeky French archeologist is murdered, and an undercover British agent goes missing, the threat moves closer to home.
Is the notorious Fredrick Fredricks behind the murders? Or is the plot even more sinister?
Competing excavators, jealous husbands, secret lovers, and belligerent spies are the leading suspects.
As they dig deeper, soon Fiona and Kitty are up to their donkeys in dead bodies.
If they can’t unwind the clues and 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.

Read an excerpt:
Covert in Cairo is the second book in author Kelly Oliver’s delightful Fiona Figg and Kitty Lane Mystery series, and it is every bit as fun and exciting as the first. Favorite characters return to track down a master spy and save the Suez Canal, this time among the pyramids of Egypt.
The main character, Fiona Figg, is still as gung-ho as ever (maybe even more so) to prove her value to Captain Hall back at headquarters in London. After the events of book one and its subsequent revelations, she finds it difficult to trust her young companion, Kitty Lane, although she grudgingly admires some of the girl’s surprising skills. Having seen her in this setting, Fiona reminds me of a young Amelia Peabody from the Elizabeth Peters series of that name. Fiona, however, has had her head turned by two unavailable men. Still, her earnestness and heart-felt responsibility to do her duty is endearing. My verdict is still out on the enigmatic Kitty.
Kelly Oliver is the award-winning and bestselling author of three mystery series: the seven-book suspense series, The Jessica James Mysteries; the three-book middle grade kids’ series, Pet Detective Mysteries; and the four-book historical cozy series, The Fiona Figg Mysteries, inspired by those trips to the Green Hills Library.
Currently, Kelly is the Vice President of Sisters in Crime.
When she’s not writing novels, Kelly is a Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University.
