Title Profile & Character Information

The Slayers of Seth

Annotation
"Lord Amerotke, Pharoah's chief judge, is already in the midst of a murder case. A young, ambitious scribe, Ipumer - supposedly in love with the daughter of a powerful general - had hoped to become betrothed. Instead, he is dead from poisoning and the prosecution has indicted his lover, Lady Neshratta, who apparently grew tired of the dalliance. If found guilty, she will be buried alive in the desert sands of the Red Lands." "But before the trial is concluded, the powerful female pharoah's chief advisor summons Amerotke to the Temple of Seth, where he is greeted by the remains of another high-profile murder victim. One of Egypt's great heroes has been brutally killed and Pharoah Hatusu herself has decided to intervene. She believes that General Balet's murder is only the beginning of something more sinister, and she calls on Amerotke for help. There is more to the deaths than meets the eye...but can Amerotke track down the killer - or killers - before the murderer strikes again?"--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
