Currently Reading - Out of the Black Land, Kerry Greenwood
This isn't one of Kerry's crime novels, but rather a book set in Ancient Egypt. Outside my normal reading experience, but very atmospheric, fascinating.
From the Blurb:
Eighteenth Dynasty Egypt is peaceful and prosperous under the dual rule of the Pharaohs Amenhotep III and IV, until the younger Pharaoh begins to dream new and terrifying dreams.
In the name of Ptah, in the name of his consort Mut after whom I was called and his son Khons who is the moon and time, in the hope that my heart will weigh heavily against the feather and I may live and die in Maat which is truth, I declare that my name is Mutnodjme and my sister is the most beautiful woman in the world.
