Product description

Review

"One of those historic fiction books where the author has actually made a serious effort to research and understand the historic context of her story. And on top of that, an interesting well paced story of theft and murder that makes the reader truly want to keep on reading. If anyone has an interest in ancient Egypt and enjoys a little suspense, this book will fill both needs. It is an excellent read, exciting, educational, and interesting, with very plausible characters. " "Besides a nicely complex mystery, the author evokes the time and place convincingly. And the characters are NOT modern ones plopped down in a period setting, as many authors including some "big names" often inflict upon unsuspecting readers."" "A considerable degree of poetry marks Wilder's writing. Her descriptions of scenery and emotion can be exquisite, calling the reader to remain for a while at the feast of words and images. The writer projects her understanding and interpretation of a civilization that was with commitment and passion. The book is a very enjoyable read for anyone interested in the ancient past and universal human condiitons." " Diana Wilder has penned an evocative novel of a crumbling civilisation, where the dutiful strive against the odds to hold society and tradition together. A suitably heavy atmosphere permeates this yarn conveying the despair and confusion of the struggle to maintain normality when norms and mores are in flux and it is hard to distinguish enemies from friends."

Book Description

Wenatef opens his eyes to darkness and intense silence. The air is heavy with myrrh: he is in a burial chamber. Pain lances through his left side as he tries to raise himself, bringing the taste of blood to his lips. His life ebbs as he remembers how the nightmare began..

One of his men came screaming of destruction and mutilation in the tomb of Egypt's greatest king. Wenatef set out to stop the sacrilege only to find that the very people he is sworn to protect were blocking him. He dreams of judgment before the gods and awakens to find new strength and even more questions. Whose blood is pooled on the floor beneath him and caked on his side when he seems, now, to be unhurt?

Wenatef lets his enemies think they have killed him and sets out to uncover who is robbing and defiling the dead. Each new discovery brings him closer to the heart of a far-flung scandal of greed and betrayal that reaches a climax in a final confrontation in the great Temple of Karnak beneath the gaze of the gods.

A KILLING AMONG THE DEAD is a historical mystery set during ancient Egypt's declining years. It is a tale of betrayal, revenge and redemption, and one man's discovery that no matter how alone we seem in our struggle against evil, the Great Ones are never far away.
