About this product
- DescriptionFor Rahotep, chief detective, life is about to get very complicated. On the shadowy city streets the cryptically mutilated bodies of several young people are discovered. These brutal acts are destabilizing a ruthless regime already made precarious by corruption and the appalling divide between rich and poor. Meanwhile, Tutankhamun has inherited an empire that should be at the height of power and glory. But the King, just eighteen, faces only the political conspiracies of the Court, and a bitter struggle for ascendancy. And when his own security is threatened by an intruder in the palace, he needs an outsider he can trust to track down the traitor. Rahotep receives a mysterious invitation to the labyrinthine halls of the Royal Palace. But what he discovers at the dark heart of power will put his life, and his family, in grave danger...
