Marvellous Recreation of Life in Ancient Egypt
on 12 April 2000
Lauren Haney magnificently recreates everyday life in ancient Egypt during the interesting reign of the only female Pharaoh. Where this series differs from novels by other authors set in Ancient Egypt, is that Haney's stories concern the work of a provincial police force commander, rather than the pharaoh and the intruiges of the royal court. Here the head of the local Medjay Police force, Bak, has a complicated case of murder to contend with. The detail of life in Ancient Eygpt is recreated with wonderful ease, without the novel starting to read like a tect book. One started you won't want to put it down. Well worth a read !
