This novel is set in the time of the Old Kingdom (2686-2181 BC) when Egypt was emerging as a great nation led by powerful and ambitious rulers. This was the age of the pyramid builders who left us those amazing and mystical constructions on the Giza Plateau at which we still marvel almost five thousand years after they were first constructed. The story follows the fortunes of one of those pyramid builders, Pharaoh Khafre whose likeness is believed to be displayed in the features of the enigmatic figure of the sphinx, and it explores the struggle for power that existed in the Nile Valley at that time as well as glimpsing life within the palace where Pharaoh ruled supreme.
