Feisty and fearless, clever and open-minded, Phryne Fisher, feminist sleuth, is not your usual detective. I've long been a fan of these 1920s Australian mysteries, and wondered how the author would present such a different kind of story. Told from the perspectives of Mutnodjme, Nefertiti's half-sister, and the scribe Ptah-hotep, and redolent of the sights, smells, and sounds of Ancient Egypt, "Out of the Black Land" belongs on the "keeper shelf" of any collector of novels set in this time period. Political intrigue and personal connections enrich the story of Akhnamen/Akhnaten and his one god as the Egyptian empire slides headlong into disaster. Passion, delight, puzzlement, and fear bring to life the perils of the Amarna court. Who, in this cast of historical characters, will step forward to save the empire--and at what cost? P.S. The historical notes at the end are a good read, too.

Almost impossible to read. Text won't go smaller than huge.
