Summary (From the publisher):

"I want my father to know that I will not remain silent, that I will not be kept for ever in the shadows and corners."
It had been four days since that meeting with his mother in this very hall. The Veiled One had not discussed the matter again but I knew what he plotted, what he wished to do. He had placed the swollen-throated Ureaus, the spitting-cobra of Egypt, around his forehead.
"The snake knows when to strike, Mahu. And so do you."

Known as the Veiled One, the ugly and deformed Akenhaten is a shadowy figure. As a child he is overlooked and despised by his own father. As an adult he is thrust into the political limelight when his elder brother dies.

Mahu, ambitious and ruthless, watches the young prince carve his own path to power. He becomes Akenhaten's alter ego, his protector and confidant, standing by as Akenhaten proclaims that there is only one God, the Aten, and that he, Akenhaten, is that God's only son. Revolution and chaos follow in this dramatic reign filled with fraud, abduction, assassination, betrayal and treachery.

But when Mahu becomes suspicious of Akenhaten's majestic and glorious wife Nefertiti, and the political skill of her father, Ay, it seems that a hidden and malign influence may also be at work. And then Akenhaten disappears...
