This review is from: An Evil Spirit Out of the West (Ancient Egypt Trilogy 1) (Paperback)
A most enjoyable novel, apparently based on common historical theories and facts, about the enigmatic Akhenaten/Nefertiti and this turbulent period in ancient Egyptian history. I stumbled across this book as I love his medieval murder mysteries and was looking for new ones by this author.
This first part, of the planned trilogy, covers from just before Amenhotep III goes into his co-regency with Akhenaten to the point where the new Tutankh*amun* is about to be placed on the throne. I found it quite gripping and enjoyed the way he wove the various historical characters I'd already read about (in historical contexts) quite feasibly into a coherent story. (Don't you want to know how he incorporates Smenkhare !).
