Hidden LuxorThis unique book is a distillation of everything I love about Luxor, why I had to move here and why I have never got tired of visiting the sites.

Counting the CostAyman and Jane Akshar were members of a cult for 7 years, recruited separately, her from a successful business career and him from post graduate studies.

This is their story, a story of deceit, half truths and manipulation.
