A Killing Among The Dead
Wenatef, an officer and Kinsman high in Pharaoh's service, has been assigned to guard the workers at His Majesty's tomb while it is under construction. Troubled by whispers of robbery and corruption among the tomb workers, themselves, but excluded from their counsels, he finds himself fighting shadows until the night he awakens in utter darkness with the taste of blood in his mouth, his life ebbing into silence.
Wenatef crosses the boundary between life and myth. He had been told "You can't fight these monsters alone. You would have to go to the Land of the West and return with an army." Did he die? Did the gods really step in and take part in unmasking the corruption? Perhaps they did.
Armed with the might of the West, he sets out to destroy the robbers and blasphemers and right an old wrong.
Set during Egypt's declining years, A Killing Among the Dead is a tale of betrayal, revenge and redemption, and one man's discovery that no matter how alone we seem in our struggle against evil, the Great Ones are never far away.
