Egypt’s enemies are massing in the North. But could the nation’s deadliest threat lie within?
The Year of the Cobra is the third and final book in Paul Doherty’s Egyptian trilogy. Perfect for fans of Lauren Haney and Wilbur Smith.
Egypt is in danger. The barbarous Hittites are rumoured to be massing their armies. Pharaoh Tutankhamen is seriously ill and the country appears powerless against its enemies. Scheming minister Lord Ay sends Mahu, Overseer of the House of Scribes, to uncover the Hittites’ plan. But what Mahu discovers could be more devastating than any attack…
When the Masked messengers emerge to guide Mahu many unanswered questions reveal themselves; the truth about Pharaoh Akenhaten’s disappearance; the identity of the ‘Watchers’ and secret knowledge about the Aten; the one God and the coming of the Messiah. Mahu knows that Egypt’s future rests on this knowledge, but he also knows that knowledge is power…
