When Hani, an Egyptian diplomat under Akhenaten, is sent to investigate the murder of a useful bandit leader in Syria, he encounters corruption, tangled relationships, and yet more murder. His investigation is complicated by the new kings religious reforms, which have struck Hanis own family to the core. Hanis mission is to amass enough evidence for his superiors to prosecute the wrongdoers despite the kings protection—but not just every superior can be trusted. And maybe not even the king!
