The future of Egypt lies in the hands of the Medjay's chief detective Rahotep in the final, gripping installment of Nick Drake's acclaimed Ancient Egyptian trilogy. Following Nefertiti and Tutankhamun, Egypt: The Book of Chaos puts Rahotep on a high-stakes adventure across enemy empires and rogue states on a top-secret mission to secure the fate of the dynasty. Readers of Stacy Schiff's Cleopatra and anyone fascinated by ancient cultures and unspoken secrets will be instantly drawn in by Drake's magisterial recreation of one of history's great unsolved mysteries. Incorporating his own research through the sites, monuments, ruins, and museums of Egypt, Drake brings vividly back to life an era long ago swallowed by the shifting sands of time in this powerful novel of loyalty, ambition, struggle, and destiny.

The author is a skillful writer casting the hieroglyphs into three dimensional people. The book has a fair amount of action and suspense but meanders,at time, as a slow boat drifting the Nile river. The Hittites, Egypt's enemies, provide a cast of colorful characters, not to be missed. After reading this, you would not want to be captured by the Hittites!
