In T.L. Higley’s City of the Dead, Hemiunu is focused on completing the Great Pyramid of Giza or Pharoah Khufu’s Pyramid; Hemiunu has a knack for numbers and architecture and focus on these elements while harboring a dark secret which can threaten the entire Egypt. This secret is literally killing off his friends and each must go back to that fateful day of their past in order to figure out what is going on. It began with his feelings for Merit, Pharoah Khufu’s wife and the death of Amunet. The killer, now named Anubis, is forcing Hemiunu to rethink all he has ever believed, ever fought for and ever loved.
The setting of City of the Dead is what makes the book warm and unsettling. From the sands of ancient Egypt to the mention of kohl to line the eyes and the occasional Inundation of the waters in the land you get the feel you have been transported to that time experiencing the suspense of “who done it” as there was no CSI back then(City of the Dead continued)
