From the Back Cover:

King Tutankhamun has died without an heir, and the future of Egypt lies in the hands of chief detective Rahotep.

Following the death of the boy king, Queen Ankhesenamun has but one hope of keeping her enemies at bay: she must forge an alliance with the Hittites, a new and powerful militant empire that threatens Egypt's supremacy. To this end, she dispatches loyal Rahotep—chief detective of the ancient capital's elite police force—on a clandestine mission to persuade the Hittite king to agree to a marriage between one of his sons and the widowed Queen.

With the nefarious General Horemheb poised to use his army to impose martial law on Egypt and a brutal new opium cartel emerging within the criminal underworld, it will fall to Rahotep to prevent the gathering forces of chaos from destroying Egypt's greatest dynasty. But first he must confront his own demons if he is to save his family from the terror that threatens them all.
