For all her bejeweled beauty and warm wisdom, and despite all her dreams for her glorious Egypt, beloved Nefertiti is dead. Lord Meren not only suspects homicide, but is certain the culprit must be a personage of high power at court.
Shrewd Meren knows that the pharaoh has more than his share of burdens ruling a kingdom in turmoil; he does not need the specter of royal murder added to the load. And so the Eyes and Ears of Pharaoh, as the powerful Meren is called, elects to pursue his investigation of Nefertiti's death under the dark cloak of secrecy.
As court mysteries mount, Meren's agitated behavior spurs the king's distrust. Worse yet, the beleaguered councillor is suddenly beset with scandal and calamity at every turn.
Accused of treason, seduction, and attempted regicide, Meren must ferret out the unscrupulous villain who plots his downfall. Snared in a venomous trap, he will parry and thrust, flee and fight. At chariot's wheel and gilded throne, at dagger's edge and bowman's site, he will battle for honor and retribution. Most of all, he will not cease until he discovers the identity of the drinker of blood...the person who murdered Nefertiti.
