It's set in the time of Hatchepsut and it's a really fun read. This is book one of the series.

Set in Ancient Egypt, during Queen Hatshepsut's reign, this first book in the well regarded Lieutenant Bak mystery series transports you in time and place. You are introduced to many memorable characters, not least of which is Lt. Bak whose strength of character among other attributes stays with you, his friend Sgt. Imsiba, the Commander's beautiful daughter, Aset and the intriguing victim, Lt. Puemre. I found the the enclosed map helpful as well as the cast of characters, which allowed me to keep these unfamiliar names straight and as a historical buff I appreciated the author's note which detailed points that helped in my understanding of the period and enjoyment of the story. Most of all I felt comfortable with Lt. Bak and wanted to visit him again.
