Description
"Amerotke, Chief Judge in the Hall of Two Truths, returns in another richly detailed murder mystery set in ancient Egypt [the seventh in the series, following The Poisoner of Ptah]. After Tekreth, Guardian of the Door of Sobeck, dies under suspicious circumstances, Pharaoh-Queen Hatusu asks Amerotke to investigate. Of course, nothing is as straightforward as it initially appears, and as he delves further into the mystery, he begins to untangle a web of intrigue and deceit that reaches into the upper echelons of a clandestine Nubian society dedicated to the destruction of the holy dynasty. As in the previous entries in this excellent series, [P.C.] Doherty conjures up an exotic realm rife with danger, superstition, and ill-fated political conspiracies. The authentic historical foundation provides a fascinating backdrop for the unexpected plot twists that keep the pages turning."Booklist
