Assassination is Ancient Egypt's second oldest profession - and The Lady Serpent is the kingdom's most skilled practitioner of its deadly arts.
But she has a problem.
She on a job Thebes, and someone's killed not her target - but her client.
Working with General Ay, the Pharaoh's right hand man, she must find
the culprit fast.
Yet she's caught up in the middle of a power struggle for control of all the lands of Egypt. And, even worse, her professional reputation is at stake.
Can she see off mutineers, cunning widows, a soothsayer and a scheming butler? Or will her career be finished while she is still in her prime?
'Race of Scorpions is a fast-moving, historical murder mystery that brilliantly captures the atmosphere of ancient Egypt - as well as being an enthralling detective story. It is perfect for fans of Steven Saylor, Lindsey Davies and Simon Scarrow.
