"Full of surprises, twists and turns, this is a glorious, riveting historical thriller."
Tess Gerritsen

"Nick Drake has woven a bright, luminous tapestry. This is brilliant; make sure you read every line."
Manda Scott

"Drake easily injects a serial killer plot into the middle book of his Ancient Egyptian trilogy while vividly evoking the reign of the boy king Tutankhamun."
Publishers Weekly

"Rahotep, like C.J Sansom's Shardlake, is a detective at the very heart of his historical era."
Daily Express

"Nick Drake's second book in his Egyptian trilogy bears the standard high. Everywhere there is gold. It is a novel replete with wonderful things. Nowhere have I found the life of Tutankhamun brought to life so vividly, so convincingly accurate. Nefertiti, the first in the trilogy, has risen to the top of my to-read list, based on the quality of this novel."
