    Egypt, 1320 BC
    : Rahotep is sent on a clandestine mission - he must cross enemy empires and rogue states to deliver a top-secret letter, from the Queen to her arch-enemy, the King of the Hittites.

    The future of Egypt lies in his hands and Rahotep knows he may not return from this mission. But he also has a personal motive driving him on, and personal demons he must face.

    Will he conquer them in time to save Egypt's greatest dynasty, and his own family, from the terror that threatens them all?

    Have you read Nefertiti and Tutankhamun, Rahotep's other adventures?
