"I'm glad that Rahotep, the policeman from Nefertiti: The Book of the Dead, has had a second outing. The central figure is the best known Egyptian of them all, Tutankhamun, and Nick Drake has written an engaging and convincing account of this doomed figure and the loyal and dogged Rahotep, the 'seeker of mysteries'." -- Bookseller (London)

In this gripping central novel in Nick Drake's Egyptian trilogy--following the critically-acclaimed Nefertiti--savvy detective Rahotep investigates a terrifying plot against the great Egyptian King Tutankhamun... a murderous plan, shocking in scope, that threatens to unravel the entire Egyptian empire.

Well written, story gallops along with good period detail, interesting characters and a genuine mystery plot that is based on Egyptian beliefs.
