A crime novel from ancient Egypt? Yes, please.  Who doesn’t love to read about an idealized version of ancient Egypt?    Drake’s writing is very descriptive – your imagination gets a lot to work from.

The story is about a detective (called ‘a seeker of mysteries’) who is called in to investigate the disappearance of Queen Nefertiti – violence, mystery and adventure ensue, and so on.

I can’t say it’s in my top ten, but it’s a fun read if you’ve got time to fit it in.
