WW28 book offering: Shadow Of The Sphinx by Christian Jacq

As Neferet had been called urgently to the main hospital in Memphis for a difficult operation, Pazair was feeding Mischief, his wife’s little green monkey.

Presumably this Pazair is Neferet’s husband and all alone… do I detect a “when-the-cat-is-away-the-mice-will-play scenario here?

About Shadow Of The Sphinx:

The time has come for the final confrontation. Appointed supreme magistrate and first minister of Egypt, Pazair and his wife Neferet must join forces against the Finance Minister, Pazair’s sworn enemy, now openly presenting himself as spokesman for the conspirators who plan to overthrow Ramses the Great in order to seize supreme power. The situation appears desperate. By undermining the economy, the conspirators threaten to destroy the values which presided over the birth of Egyptian civilisation. And allies are few and far between. Where is Pazair’s blood brother Suti, who has escaped from his Nubian prison? After several fruitless attempts, will the mysterious “shadow-eater” succeed in eliminating Pazair? Who is the real leader of the conspirators, the one hiding in the shadows? And who will emerge victorious from this fierce battle, on which the survival of Egypt depends?
