Who killed Queen Nefertiti? That's just one of the problems troubling Lord Meren, chief adviser to Tutankhamen, in the fourth entry in a wonderously detailed and totally accessible series of mysteries set in ancient Egypt. Avoiding virtually all of the Hollywood High Camp treatment of the period, Lynda S. Robinson recreates a world of brutal poverty under a very thin layer of opulence--a culture obsessed with death and corpses. While Meren frightens his family by poking into the suspicious death of Nefertiti, someone--perhaps a human, perhaps the demon goddess Ammut the Devouress--is killing common people in the city of Memphis, gouging out their hearts and leaving behind a white feather. Previous books in this splendid series--Murder at the Feast of Rejoicing, Murder at the God's Gate, Murder in the Place of Anubis--are available in paperback.
