D everything about this book Reader reviewA KING IN DANGER A BATTLE TO STAY ALIVE On the shadowy city streets the cryptically mutilated bodies of several young people are discovered These brutal acts are destabilizing a ruthless regime already unstable thanks to corruption and the appalling divide between rich and poorMeanwhile Tutankhamun at 18 has inherited an empire that should be at the height of power and glory But he faces only a Court full of conspir. While a good mystery is always enjoyable when that mystery is mixed with history it s even better Such is surely the case with TUTANKAMUN Intrigue rich atmospheric detail and twists than are found in the narrow streets of ancient Egypt are seamlessly woven by Nick Drake Nefertiti to produce a can t put down tale Our narrator is Rahotep a detective in ancient Egypt s police force Happily married he is the father of four three daughters on the cusp of womanhood and a young son Yet despite the many blessings life has given him he still cannot resist intrigue a mystery to be solved In fact he is known as a Seeker of Mysteries He need not look far in our story Rahotep is first called upon to investigate a truly sadistic murder a young man s bones have been broken and his eyes removed It is a particularly gruesome crime At the same time Tutankhamun the young king is the recipient of frightening gifts which than disconcert him Ankesenamun daughter of Nefertiti now not only Tutankhamun s ueen but his half sister calls upon Rahotep to find out who is responsible for these terrifying gifts and also protect the king and ueen Not an easy task as there are enemies within and without The actual power in the palace is an evil man the elderly Regent Ay His enemy is Horemheb obviously the political climate is highly charged When another eually ghastly murder is committed Rahotep begins to believe that somehow the killer and the implicit messages in the king s gifts are related Tutankhamun and his wife want to claim the power that is rightfully theirs but unknown forces are aligned against them using fear as a major weapon It is not long before Rahotep realizes that what he is learning may very well place his family in jeopardy TUTANKHAMUN is alive with vivid descriptions of daily life beliefs held at that time political factions and For this reader those descriptions sometimes seemed so lengthy that the narrative movement was hampered Nonetheless for those interested in ancient Egypt particularly at the time of Tutankhamun will find much to satisfy them Gail Cooke
