Near-fine first edition, with some bruising to spine and small bump to bottom of back board. Some discoloration to top corner of page block. In a very good unclipped dust jacket with some brusing along top edge and a small nick to bottom of spine.
Ancient Egypt. Land of the Pharaohs. A kingdom built on gold. And a legend shattered by greed... Now the Valley of the Kings lies ravaged by war, drained of its lifeblood, as weak men inherit the cherished crown.
'An epic of sex, death and intrigue in the valley of the kings...richly written...packs in the action...excellent' Weekend Telegraph
'Grand mythical material...the set pieces are fabulous' Time Literary Supplement
'Superlatively evocative... Smith's descriptions hardly falter over 500 pages...(River God) has relentless momentum' Observer
