"A touchstone novel for me as an Egypt fiction author" ★★★★★

An all-time favourite (Amazon)

"This is the Egyptian historical novel that helped fire my love of ancient Egypt and my career as an author of Egypt-based novels. I never got over the perfidious Egyptian beauty Nefernefernefer and I dare say there is an echo of her in some of my own creations such as the dangerous Sesheshet in The Smiting Texts and Hunting Hathor. Read 'The Egyptian' if you love ancient Egypt"
