House of Illusions
Seventeen years after a peasant girl is made the scapegoat for a murderous plot against the Pharaoh and banished to Aswat, Kamen is forced to stay a night in the dreaded village. Unable to refuse a madwoman's request to carry her manuscript to the Egyptian leader, Kamen sets in motion a chain of events that reopen a plot against the Horus Throne. The drama that unfolds is one of miraculous disclosures and unexpected vindication.
