Tutankhamun

D everything about this book Reader reviewA KING IN DANGER A BATTLE TO STAY ALIVE On the shadowy city streets the cryptically mutilated bodies of several young people are discovered These brutal acts are destabilizing a ruthless regime already unstable thanks to corruption and the appalling divide between rich and poorMeanwhile Tutankhamun at 18 has inherited an empire that should be at the height of power and glory But he faces only a Court full of conspir. The second book in this series is much like the first an interesting historical mystery that too often at least for me gets bogged down in description and language to the detriment of pace and plottingRahotep is a melancholy poet turned investigator who gets pulled into the intrigue of the palace during the reign of the famous Tutankhamun What seems a simple investigation into mysterious objects found in the palace turns into a mystery that may cost Rahotep everything and puts the future of Egypt at riskThe characters and backdrop are interesting but too often Drake a poet and playwirght insists on detailed descriptions of both interior ie emotional and exterior scenes to the point that the story loses its pace Rahotep is supposed to be a uniue perspective agnostic when it comes to the gods introspective and prone to uestion everything too much musing and description means less tension and actionThose who like historical mysteries with lots of details may disagree
