About the Book

Scepter of Flint (N.L. Holmes)
Click to Read an Excerpt
During the Great Jubilee of the Aten, a mysterious series of tomb robberies takes place, and witnesses begin to die. 

With plague ravaging the palace, where Hani’s daughter is a physician, and Egypt’s ally, Naharin, collapsing into the hands of a usurper, 

Hani must make sense of what is happening. 

And who in high places is his real enemy?

For lovers of Egypt, it reconstructs the world in lively detail and puts the reader right there in the land of the pyramids. The characters and the challenges they face will be immediately identifiable: issues of conscience, inter-generational relationships, even plague. 

For mystery readers, they’ll find a complex whodunit and a bit of political thriller.
