From far and wide, they have came to the capital city of Waset for the opulent Feast of Opet sovereigns and supplicants, the pious and proud, gathering for the eleven day long revelries. While greeting friends and fellow Medjay officers at the bustling harbor, Lieutenant Bak is distracted by foul murder, the discovery of the body of a Hittite horse trader, his throat savagely cut. Bak has no authority to investigate what could be a simple matter of Hittite politics until similar murders occur within the sacred precinct of the Lord Amon. Thought this city is not his own, Bak eagerly agrees to aid in the investigation. But his determined search for connections embroils him in a terrifying conspiracy that points to the court of Queen Hatshepsut herself. Untold others my be joining the ranks of the dead vefore the villain is done.

I love this series. I am only sad that she is not writing any more. Make sure that you read them in order. They really bring ancient Egypt to life.
