Tutankhamun's Murder Investigated,
This review is from: City of the Dead (Egyptian Mysteries) (Paperback)
The third in the series of mysteries investigated by Huy, the disgraced former scribe. Tutankhamun is killed in a chariot accident but there are too many discrepancies for the liking of Ay, the old politician. Enter Huy, the discreet and solitary investigator who can be relied upon to carry the blame if things look too messy. Tutankhamun's pregnant widow is caught up in the battle for power between Ay and the ambitious, ruthless Horemheb and Huy finds himself battling for her survival as well as his own.
Gill's Huy is portrayed as a sad, but honourable man in a world dominated by powerful, untrustworthy figures. What really stands out for me however, is the quality of writing which is both gritty and dreamlike. Another great effort from a great writer.
