1925, and a group of English tourists arrive in Luxor on a cruise, among them is Jeremy Hessling, a gay and handsome but penniless young adventurer who does very well with the support of older wealthy friends, namely Percy, a gay fifty year old resident in Luxor, and Mrs Dryden, a forceful widow he latched onto onboard ship. Once in Luxor Jeremy, in addition to meeting Percy again, looks forward to renewing his sexual exploits with Khalid, an attractive Arab; but he also finds interest in Graham, a fellow traveller and a fine athletic young man accompanied by his fiancé. Jeremy soon finds himself in love with two men, but with seemingly little hope of a permanent arrangement with either.
There are of course several more characters, mostly male and Arab, who enjoy one another or some of the English men, or as in the case of some corrupt local policemen who enjoy meeting out their own form of retribution by sexually abusing their English prisoners.
In addition to the many and varied sexual encounters, and there are many, there is a rather slight story of amateur detective work. But what this really develops into is a touching love story; almost all the players come out of these escapades with someone, and not necessarily the partner they started with, all that is except Jeremy, perhaps?
As with other Idol titles, The Love of Old Egypt has more than enough sexual activity, but the characters are varied and interesting, and the love theme more than hold it a together.



:lol: who knows Percy? ;) so whats new could be modern day Luxor!! :)
Neverthless sounds a good read for a wet day :D
