  • The Spies of Sobeck Jan 20, 2011
    by Dennis R

    The most recent of Doherty's Egyptian mystery series presents a complicated story of deception, intrigue, and action. Judge Amerotke slowly unravels the schemes and finally identifies the guilty. This novel has more description of life in ancient Egypt and there is less focus on the relationship between Amerotke and Queen Hatusu and other characters from the previous novels. Bottom line is that the book is a good read full of interesting characters and events in a complex mystery.

    As always, the author claims to have extensive knowledge of ancient Egypt. All of his books, including this one, prove otherwise. It is riddled with errors about that ancient civilization, starting with the name Hatasu. The last time an Egyptologist used that name for Hatshepsut was in the early 1900s. Many of the other characters have names that must've been created by the author, not the ancient Egyptians.
    The story moves quickly, with scenes moderately well written but difficult to believe in the ancient Egyptian society. The atmosphere seems to have come out of the Middle Ages in England, which is understandable since the author's training is in that time period. I strongly suggest that he limit his writing to a period in which he's acquainted rather than to ancient times.
