'Outstanding' Washington Post.

ALEXANDRIA, 47 BC.

For three centuries, the House of Ptolemy has governed the Kingdom of Egypt. Cleopatra - seventh of her name - rules from Alexandria, that beacon of commerce and learning that stands between the burning sands of the desert and the dark waters of the Middle Sea.

But her realm is beset by ethnic rivalries, aristocratic feuds and courtly intrigues. Not only that, she must contend with the insatiable appetite of Julius Caesar who needs Egyptian grain and Egyptian gold to further his ambitions. The world is watching the young Queen, waiting for a misstep...

And now her most trusted servant - her Eye - has been murdered and a vast shipment of newly minted coin stolen. Cleopatra cannot afford for the coins to go unrecovered or the murderers unpunished, so she asks childhood friend, Tetisheri Nebenteru, to retrace the dead Eye's footsteps.

Tetisheri will find herself plunged into the shadowy heart of Alexandria. As she sifts her way through a tangle of lies and deceit, she will discover that nothing can be taken at face value, that she can't trust anyone - not even the Queen herself.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The first adventure for Tetisheri neatly sets the scene for what promises to be an entertaining series' * BBC History *
'One of my favorite historical mystery series currently around. If this is a sample of this author's talent, I will be eager for more in this series and in search of her back list. Very highly recommended' * MyShelf *
