Synopses & Reviews
Someone--or something--is slaying innocent persons on the night streets in the royal city of Memphis. Frightened citizens believe it is the gruesome work of the Devourer, the eater of souls, one of the most fearsome gods in the Egyptian pantheon. Even Lord Meren, the Eyes and Ears of Pharaoh, is baffled by this series of horrific crimes whose victims have only one thing in common: the grisly manner of their deaths.
Is the evildoer truly the Devourer, risen from the netherworld, or just a mere mortal? Between Lord Meren and the truth lie dangerous mysteries--in the city's back alleys and in the bosom of his own noble family. . . .
Lord Meren, sleuth in the service of King Tut, investigates the mysterious death of Queen Nefertiti -- and tracks a serial killer -- in his fourth fascinating whodunit. By the acclaimed author of Murder at the Feast of Rejoicing.
