For three centuries, the House of Ptolemy has governed the Kingdom of Egypt. Cleopatra - seventh of her name - rules from Alexandria, that beacon of commerce and learning that stands between the burning sands of the desert and the dark waters of the Middle Sea.
But her realm is beset by ethnic rivalries, aristocratic feuds and courtly intrigues. Not only that, she must contend with the insatiable appetite of Julius Caesar who needs Egyptian grain and Egyptian gold to further his ambitions. The world is watching the young Queen, waiting for a misstep...
And now her most trusted servant - her Eye - has been murdered and a vast shipment of newly minted coin stolen. Cleopatra cannot afford for the coins to go unrecovered or the murderers unpunished, so she asks childhood friend, Tetisheri Nebenteru, to retrace the dead Eye's footsteps.
Tetisheri will find herself plunged into the shadowy heart of Alexandria. As she sifts her way through a tangle of lies and deceit, she will discover that nothing can be taken at face value, that she can't trust anyone - perhaps even the Queen herself.

In Marguerite Gavin's voice, I kept hearing Kate Shugak solving crimes in The Park. In this case, displace to 47BC Alexandria Egypt. Death of an Eye just failed to engage me. The plot could have been anywhere...it was just a murder mystery. I put it down after about an hour listen. DNF.
