The first in a new trilogy by Christian Jacq, BENEATH THE PYRAMID is a gripping novel of suspense which takes place during the reign of Ramses the Great.

A young, intelligent, incorruptible novice judge, Pazair, is called to Memphis to investigate the mysterious deaths of five guards standing watch over the sphinx at Giza.

His inquiries unearth a plot to overthrow Ramses, and with the help of Souti, a former scribe, and the beautiful Nefertet, a young doctor, he sets out to discover the truth.

Review by

I liked this book about Pazair the young judge who is trying to find the truth. He's young and doesn't understand the status quo which gets him into trouble. My only problem with the book is that this isn't a self contained book. To find out what happens with his investigation you have to read the next book.
