Across the lush plains of Egypt, Taita, a freed eunuch slave, wears his authority lightly.

They have been fighting Southern Egypt's constant and historic enemy, the Hyksos people in the north, since time began. To finally crush them, Pharaoh must turn to his most trusted friend.

I find it difficult to say how disappointing this book was. Knowhere near his normal standard.
I was hoping it would end sooner rather than later.
Sorry Wilbur, but probably the worst book of yours I have read. And I am a fan of most of the others.

The ancient order of the Knights Templar possessed untold wealth and absolute power over kings and popes until the Inquisition, when they were wiped from the face of the earth, their hidden riches lost. But now two forces vying for the treasure have learned that it is not at all what they thought it was, and its true nature could change the modern world.
