A novel by

 
 
Since the death of Ramses the Great, the villagers of the Place of Truth have been under pressure to produce their best work to honour Egypt's greatest Pharaoh. But the pressure of work can only conceal the anxiety faced by all who live in the secret village; will the new Pharaoh, Merenpath, want to continue his father's good work? Or will he disband the artisans and force them to leave their beloved home? As the new master of work at the Place of Truth, Nefer the Silent bears the ultimate responsibility for all he oversees. But he is in mortal danger. Mehy, Chief Treasurer of Thebes and leader of the armed forces, continues to plot Nefer's downfall. And it is up to Nefer's wife, Ubekhet, to protect him and try to earn the title she has been given - The Wise Woman. Thefts, murders, floods, sorcery and evil, Nefer and Ubekhet must take on all this and more as they prepare for the grandest burial Egypt will ever know.
