This is another in the series of books featuring Judge Amerotke, a crime solver in the reign of Pharoah Hatsu.. Disaster strikes, at of all things a peace treaty signing, a treaty between Egypt and Libya that is taking place in Thebes. Three of Egypt's leading scribes die a violent death on the forecourt of the Temple. They are the victims of poison. Rumours begin to sweep through the city, the Poisoner of Ptah has returned.
It becomes the task of Amerotke, Chief Judge to investigate these crimes, but by doing so Amerotke has to enter the twilight world of Thebes, where anything is possible if you have money in your pocket. Virtually anything can be bought or sold for a price, but death stalks the streets for the unwary . . .
The new Doherty is no exception and Amerotke, Chief Judge in the Hall of Two Truths, features in another gripping mystery. This novel has all the right ingredients, bound to increase Doherty's alraedy large number of fans. In short: historical crime writing at its best.
