BOOK 3 OF THE MEMPHIS CYCLE As Prince Khay, son of Ramesses the Great, is marshalling a procession for a festival, one of the colossal statues of his grandfather comes crashing down into a throng of worshippers, bringing the feast day of the good god Ptah to a sudden, bloody end. Khay finds clues that show that the fall was t an accident. The collapse of the great stone gateway within hours of the first disaster confirms his suspicions. When the great temple of Memphis becomes the scene of a chilling series of murders, Khay is faced with questions that grow more alarming with every answer he finds. Murder, mystery, hauntings - he appeals to his father for assistance and is sent an ally in the person of his eldest brother, Hori, Crown Prince of Egypt, whose sharp intellect, courage and cunning are offset by a devastating bluntness. Pharaoh's Son follows their investigation into the plot and brings them to the discovery of a hidden treasure whose origin lies in past heresies, and whose use by the plotters may well rock the foundations of Egypt.
Diana Wilder grew up in a military family that traveled throughout the United States and spent generations in the orient. The constant travel honed her love for people-watching and gave her plenty of material for stories, whether set in the present or in the distant past. She has published three novels set in ancient Egypt and one set in the American Civil War. Currently, she is working on a sequel to Pharaoh's Son as well as another Civil War story. In between working on those stories, she is polishing a novel in two parts set in France of the 1830's and two non-magical fantasy novels. When she isn't writing, Diana is showing cats, working in graphic design and trying to knit.
