Description du Livre

Egypt, the 18th Dynasty.

After the death of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun, Egypt must make the difficult decision of choosing a new ruler promptly.

Ay, a powerful and influential politician has taken to the throne and must protect his country from the resentful Horemheb, leader of the army, who craves power and will do anything to overthrow Ay.

Huy, the scribe who unwillingly quit his profession to become a private detective, has been appointed once again by Ay.

Having achieved his ultimate goal, he is now undecided on his next step - should he marry the charming physician, Senseneb?

As their relation progresses, Huy is faced with the tough responsibility of protecting Ay when Horemheb and his followers suddenly attack the premises.

On the other side of Egypt, Tutankhamun’s widow, Ankhsi lives in solitude to grieve her husband’s death. Horemheb ultimately decides to use her as a hostage and Huy must decide who he will protect first – Ankhsi, whose husband he served for years, or Huy, who he works for now?

Will Huy act quickly when Horemheb arrives in order to save Ay and the future of his country whilst also protecting Ankhsi?

‘City of Lies’ is the riveting new thriller from the pen of master story-teller Anton Gill that follows the adventures of Huy in ancient Egypt.

‘Anton Gill supplies enough tension and breadth of description to keep one wanting to know the answer…and he is very readable.’ Times Literary Supplement
