Summary (From the publisher):

A jubilant crowd gathers at the divine temple of Horus: Hatusu, the widow of Pharoah Tuthmosis II, has defeated the Mitanni. All Egypt should be cheering. But even though Hatusu's achievements continue to confound critics and opponents - who refuse to believe that a woman can rule the empire - she cannot silence the court gossips who whisper that her stepson is the true heir to the throne. Aided by her lover, Senenmut, Hatusu is determined that her people will accept her as the first Pharoah-Queen. But the acceptance she craves lies first with the gods, and only the priests can interpret their wishes.

The initial portents are good. But when a spate of savage killings take place in the temple of Horus, the priests understand it as a sign of divine disapproval for Hatusu. Confusion and rumor paralyse the royal city. Only the respected judge Amerotke can be trusted to find truth among the intrigue.
