The Lost Pharaoh
Publication date: December 2019
Yanhamu is a magistrate in Akhmin, unconventional and less wealthy than he and his wife, Nefer-bithia would like. When he receives a request by the Nomarch of Elephantine, it looks like his prayers have been answered. He is required for a high court case and the nomarch is willing to pay handsomely. However the case raises more questions in Yanhamu’s mind than are being answered.
He also wants the truth about his past but his quest leads him into trouble. First with his wife and then with the state itself. Pharaoh Horemheb fears sedition and when Yanhamu is arrested on suspicion of treason, it looks like he won’t survive, let alone save his marriage.
