4.0 out of 5 stars If you like mystery & Ancient Egypt this is a fine choice., 3 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: City of Dreams (Egyptian Mysteries) (Paperback)
Huy had been a scribe during Akhenaten's reign. He survived the bitter return to the old ways, gods & a new pharoah's reign under the yoke of rivals Horemheb & Ay, but at the cost of his profession. Unable to live by previous means he is drawn 'unofficially' to assist in the mysterious deaths of young beautiful girls by a Medjay policeman. The deaths are due to unknown cause & pressure mounts to find the guilty party(ies) quickly. Huy uses keen observation, commonsense, contacts and instinct to probe the frightening murders. The author sets the mood & period very capably. Dialogue & descriptions are very readable & are void of distracting 'modernisms' & comparisons.While not the 'greatest' book one may read, it is a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon distraction & a pleasure to read, probably more than once.
