Description

"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.

Back cover copy

Young Tutankhamun is ready to claim his birthright--a vast, powerful, and opulent empire troubled by foreign wars, corruption, and court conspiracies. He plans to return tolerance and enlightenment to Egypt.

But when horrific "gifts" begin appearing in the royal palace, he commands Rahotep, chief detective of the Thebes division, to investigate. Rahotep realizes the sinister objects have much in common with a series of cryptically mutilated young murder victims discovered across the city.

Rahotep vows to protect the young king from the dark forces that threaten the future of the empire, but what he discovers will put everything he loves in terrible danger.
