A sudden increase in attacks on caravans, along with the delay of the Nubian tillage, sees Shabaka and Neti travel to Shabaka's home, Sylene, where they are tasked with finding the royal shutty. On their arrival they find not only that an attempt has been made on Dagi's life, but also that his death has been foretold by the most unlikeliest practitioner of divine arts.
In a race against the moon to ensure Dagi's safety, the situation increasingly gets out of hand, and before long Neti and Shabaka find themselves peering into the deepest recesses of the human soul....
The Forgotten Papyrus returns us to a land steeped in mystery and magic. It paints a detailed picture of Ancient Egypt in all its glory.

So light up the incense, sit close to the light, and draw back the curtains on the shadowed past with this gripping tale of love and intrigue among the living and the dead in one of history's most intriguing civilizations.

A narrator's voice which is not so dry, clipped & wooden & so dicficultto listen to without feeling irritation.
Kevin Clay is a better & more imaginative narrator
Too many things are left hanging; I didn't hear anything about a papyrus in the narrative!
