Overview

The pharaoh Tutankhamun is dead, killed in a mysterious hunting accident. In theory, this should be good news for Huy, who was exiled from court—and prevented from working as a scribe—when Tutankhamun took the throne. Palace intrigue, though was never so simple. In the years since his exile, Huy has been eking out a living as a freelance problem solver—essentially the world's first private eye—and it's in that capacity that he's been hired once again, to find out exactly how Tutankhamun died. If Huy's employer were purely interested in the truth, that would be one thing. But he has an agenda of his own, which doesn't bode well for the suddenly friendless young queen. And in becoming his snoop-for-hire, Huy may have bought himself a lot more trouble than he's being paid to take on. A Chandler-style PI story in the second millennium BC—Western Morning News (UK)
