9780380792672: A Face Turned Backward: A Mystery of Ancient Egypt (Lieutenant Bak)

The many and mighty deities of Egypt must be given their due. All commerce is conducted under the watchful eyes of the functionaries of the great Queen Maatkare Hatshepsut. Death faces any and all who could rob the royal hose of Kemet of its rightful share. Lieutenant Bak, commander of the Medjay police, willingly accepts his assignment to search all Nile River traffic for contraband -- for rumors are rife of valuable elephant tusks passing unlawfully from the south to the north. But greed has spawned death, hideous and unexpected, and someone who would become rich illegally is dealing in far more than precious ivory. Whoever threatens to expose a lethal cache of secrets will not live to see a new dawn -- and loyal Bak could be the next, as he heads relentlessly toward a grim confrontation, a shocking revelation, and very possible doom in the realm of the dead.

About the Author :

Lauren Haney, a former technical editor in the aerospace and international construction industries, is the author of four ancient Egyptian mysteries featuring Lieutenant Bak: The Right Hand of Amon, A Face Turned Backward, A Vile Justice, and A Curse of Silence. She lives in Sante Fe, New Mexico, and travels to Egypt at every opportunity.

From Publishers Weekly :

Lieutenant Bak and his Medjay police at Buhen fortress?southern Egypt during the 18th Dynasaty?are called in to investigate the stabbing of farmer Penhet. The likely suspect, according to the wife, is Penhet's neighbor, Netermose, who swears his innocence. While at the crime scene, Bak and his second, Imsiba, are summoned to Commandant Thuty's office. Goods are moving up the Nile without the appropriate fees being paid, and a large ivory tusk has disappeared. Bak and his men must inspect all incoming and outgoing shipments. The stew thickens when the investigators discover an abandoned, cargoless ship and hear rumors of sightings of a headless man. The plot is fairly simple and, as all good detectives throughout the ages, Bak solves his case with wits and careful investigation. Haney (The Right Hand of Amon) makes up for what is otherwise a fairly routine story with colorful characters and glimpses of daily life and romance in this ancient world.
