More Information

Years after the king's death, a young man with a passion for the truth questions the pharaoh's contemporaries-including his closest friends, his bitterest enemies, and his enigmatic wife Nefertiti-in an effort to discover what really happened in those strange, dark days at Akhenaten's court. As they each report their version of events, Mahfouz allows his-readers to decide for themselves the truth about Akhenaten.
