The search for Queen Nefertiti’s killer brings terror and treachery to the pharaoh’s investigator in this “marvelous series” (Historical Novel Society).
Lord Meren, protector of the pharaoh Tutankhamun, is convinced the boy king’s stepmother, Queen Nefertiti, didn’t die of the plague as others believe, but was instead poisoned. As Meren journeys around Egypt to gather clues, visiting the lush countryside and tombs of the dead, his investigation will lead him to a treacherous—and lethal—conspiracy . . .
