The Tempering Agent - The Breastplate of Judgement

Dr. Hackling has been delivered to the police station in Cairo. She fears the worst - Trey Whittington's murder case will be reopened and she was a suspect. But the authorities have another job for Priscilla - help find Trey's killer.

She resists, feels that she's bait in their game but surrenders when she decides she cannot be disloyal to Trey's memory. She will go to Siwa Oasis where the treacherous and illusive Alaa El-Din is thought to be hiding.

When she learns she can take only one other person with her, she calls her assistant Rayhan. His wife, Amisi, is due to give birth to their second child and Rayhan cannot go but knows of another whom Priscilla could trust.

I could chronicle the Greek and Cyene historical data and get myself killed, she thinks as she mulls over her situation.
