    Excellent Ancient Egypt tale

    Everyone believes the slaves built the pyramids that housed the tombs of the Pharaohs. However, those brilliant architectural structures were fashioned by the people who lived in the Place of Truth, an isolated village of artisans. The virtuosos living there used the magic of the Stone of Light to transform anything into gold and to convert matter into a translucent item. Though revered by most that know them, they have a powerful enemy in General Mehy of Thebes. <P>When he was younger, Mehy tried to join the Place of Truth, but was rejected for not meeting the standard required of all the residents. He has held a grudge ever since and now has an inside person trying to steal the Stone of Light for him. Mehy is clever as he works behind the scenes so no trace exists to him if something goes wrong. Still he does everything he can to weaken the power base of those who run the Place of Truth, but even with his Machiavellian ways can he prevail over one of Egypt¿s most scared icons? <P> The fourth and final novel in the Place of Truth series is as magically powerful as the previous three tales. The leader of this small village of people answering a noble cause is a hero setting an example of honor and loyalty instead of hedonism and vanity for his fellow residents. The villain is obsessed, but works his ruses behind a veil of safety. Christian Jacq completes his classy Ancient Egypt quartet with another triumph that will gratify future audiences for eras. <P>Harriet Klausner
