    “Mystery of the Temple”, a crime thriller on ancient Egypt, where a female prefect investigates a strange illness and death which leads her to the Pyramid of Khufu and his curse. “Mystery of the Temple” is the eighth book of the “Mysteries of Ancient Egypt” Series authored by Nathaniel Burns. This book is written in the backdrop of a time during the rule of mighty Pharaoh Ramses-II (1279-1294 BC), who ruled Egypt from his capital at Pi-Ramesses. As we have seen through the previous seven books of “Mystery of the Temple”, a crime thriller on ancient Egypt, where a female prefect investigates a strange illness and death which leads her to the Pyramid of Khufu and his curse. “Mystery of the Temple” is the eighth book of the “Mysteries of Ancient Egypt” Series authored by Nathaniel Burns. This book is written in the backdrop of a time during the rule of mighty Pharaoh Ramses-II (1279-1294 BC), who ruled Egypt from his capital at Pi-Ramesses. As we have seen through the previous seven books of this series, Ramses has three Prefects, Shabaka, Neti-Kerty and Moses, the same characters and particularly the first two dominates this book. Two mysterious deaths occur in Thebes, where the dead body of Kaliph and Xaron decomposes very quickly, and spiders descends on rotten flesh and leaves only bones as remains within 2-3 days of death. Just after recovery from Plague epidemic the Prefects becomes suspicious if this is another unknown epidemic and starts investigating. Their investigation at Thebes meet dead end but they get some hint and Shabaka and Neti travels to Memphis with Neti’s servant Seota. In the markets of Memphis, they get the impression that stolen items from graves are being sold openly. The commander of local mejay (police) is found relaxed and using his office hours to visit whore house and a pissed off Shabaka arrests him. They travel to the Villa of Ramses near the Giza pyramids to camp; they discover all the twenty-two attendants there is dead from a mysterious skin disease. Here they come across the only surviving shepherd Sereb. Following some hints from ancient scrolls they reach the Sphinx and a nearby Amun temple and meet a lone priest Zereth. From them they learn more about this disease and during Khufu’s time also this disease occurred. Meanwhile Seota contacts this skin disease leaving Neti very concerned and she and Shabaka leaves for Khufu’s pyramid and enters inside to looks for some ancient scroll describing this disease and its cure. After getting almost lost in the traps and labyrinths inside the pyramid, they reach Khufu’s burial chamber and realize how all the valuables were stolen and plundered. They also read the scrolls describing the curse of Khufu to the thief’s and plunders about type of disease and deaths which they saw in Thebes and Memphis, but obviously no cure. They reach back to Memphis with sick Seota. Here the meajy already alerted by Shabaka, have discovered a house of thieves, where a lot of stolen artefacts from the Khufu’s Pyramids were found but all the thieves mysteriously dead with rotten flesh with curse syndromes. The story suddenly ends here abruptly without Neti finding a cure for Seota, keeping the readers a bit high and dry. Obviously Nathaniel wants the readers to read his ninth book of the series. The book is quite well written as an ancient mystery thriller, there a few typos remaining which requires more through editing. If you have seen the great Pyramid of Khufu at Giza and the Sphinx, this book is for you and relate yourself to the past very well.

    Neti-Kerti was the most unusual character. She was a mummifier by trade as well as a prefect for the Pharoah. In addition to her skills with the dead she was also an investigator of crimes. So an ancient crime solving coroner type character. I found her to be most interesting. The story was nicely written with good pacing and at no point did I feel a lull in the story. It was a fast read and enjoyable!

    Mummified's daughter books This is the eighth book in the series by Nathaniel Burns. It gives an insight into the Egyptian way of life and the trials and tribulations facing a mummifier. It is excellent as were the first seven books and really holds your interest. I would recommend the whole series to everyone.

    Good but seems incomplete The story is good, but the ending is sudden and seems incomplete. Does Seota recover? Do Moses and Yani reconcile? Do they return the stolen goods to the tomb? Too much is left unexplained.

    A bit bland I found this book boring at times with questionable accuracy, Predictable and with a very sudden end. Over all quite a disappointing read..
