Description: circa 1333 BC, Egypt

The 3rd book in the trilogy with The Ivory Cat and The Missing Queen. (Each book continues the same basic story and cast; and though the protagonist shifts, the same characters preside throughout.)

General Horemheb is confident of becoming Pharaoh when Ay dies childless. Over-confident? He understands men. But not, alas, women, who are as unpredictable and disobedient as cats. The gods, possibly offended, challenge him with plots, pretenders, disappearances, assassins, magic, and willful women–not to mention an imperious kitten who rides his shoulder and whose goddess he had better not offend! Becoming the Next Pharaoh turns out more complicated than he had supposed!
