4.0 out of 5 stars Doherty at his best, 4 Jan 2007
By 
This review is from: The Assassins of Isis (Amerotke 5) (Paperback)
This is the fifth in Doherty's series of murder mysteries set in ancient Egypt. The protagonist is Pharaoh's Chief Judge, Amerotke, and criminals are a dangerous sect of killers and grave robbers known as the Sebaus. Grave robbing during these times was extremely lucrative as the ancient Egyptians filled their tombs with unbelievable riches. Pharaoh, Hatusu, is extremely angry at the desecration of her ancestor's tombs, which she has avowed to protect. The leader of the Sebaus is a powerful person who calls himself or herself the Khetra. This person has a pass that enables the transportation of stolen antiquities out of Egypt. Is it one of the priests of the Temple of Isis where four young temple maidens have disappeared? Or perhaps someone from the house of General Suten, who met his death by being bitten by a nest of vipers? Amerotke must question dozens of witnesses and sift the information to begin to guess at the answers to these riddles. As always Doherty provides his readers with a great thriller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fifth in a Terrific Series, 20 Sep 2007

Paul Doherty is the consummate professional when it comes to writing historical mystery novels. I for one do not know how he can be so prolific with his offering of books and yet make sure that each of them is well researched. Whether they be 13th, 14th, or fifteenth century they are always true to the period. He has also written books about Alexander the Great and is now turning his hand to novels of Ancient Egypt at the time of the most influential period in its long history.

The tomb of Rahimere, his house of eternity filled with all the things he may need to cross to the other side has been hidden for many years, somewhere deep in the desert. The location of the tomb has long been kept a closely guarded secret. But now a sect know as the Sebaus, who take their name from the demons have not only found the tomb, but plundered it for the powerful secret it holds . . .

These book on Egypt just get better and better and long may Paul Doherty continue to write them. They are both entertaining and also give a wonderful insight into the life of the Ancient Egyptians.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great whodunit in Egypt, 17 Jun 2008

This review is from: The Assassins of Isis (Amerotke 5) (Paperback)
I had never read Paul Doherty before and picked this book because it was in the 'crime' section and being based in ancient Egypt seemed a bonus. I was taken into the story, unable to put the book down and finished it after a few days. The details of life in ancient Egypt are fascinating and add interest to a mystery in tomb robbing, dodgy priests of Isis (or are they?), lust and greed. The pace of the story is fast and the action is non-stop. Enough details to see that the author researched his subject seriously but also a nice study of character to keep you interested in the story. A great read!
