Scribe’s Duty is the second novel in the Amenhotep, Son of Hapu: A Tale of Egypt series. Here the aged scribe and chief of recruits continues the account of his rise through the ranks of the ancient Egyptian bureaucracy only to find himself overwhelmed by forces he can no longer control. In this gripping depiction of life during the age of the pharaohs, Amenhotep tells how he surmounts all obstacles in his path to power, including bloody dynastic squabbles, the jealousy of older, more noble families, conspiracy, threats of foreign invasion, and seemingly impossible feats of construction, organization, and engineering he is commanded to oversee. At the height of his influence, Amenhotep is quickly enmeshed in events he himself set in motion, but now seem likely to ruin everything he sought to achieve. In Amenhotep’s eclipse and demise, he witnesses the disastrous, inevitable impact of change on an essentially changeless society.
