Tutankhamun: The Book of Shadows 4 Mar 2010

Part two of the Egypt trilogy, published by Transworld in 2009.

Tutankhamun was chosen as one of the 100 Best Books of 2010 by Publishers Weekly


"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."
