Book 2 of 2017 -- Desert God

AS we were getting ready for our vacation to California I decided I needed some light easy reading to take with me and so I went to the local second-hand store to see what jumped off the shelf at me.

Wilbur Smith is an author I have not read for decades, when I read the first three (maybe 4??) novels in his Courtney series. I remember finding them enjoyable reading and so when I saw this one I decided to take a chance on it.

If you enjoy historical fiction then I think you would enjoy this novel (though definitely it is far more fiction than historical). Set in the time of the Hyksos invasion of Egypt, the book tells of the stratagems being developed by one of Pharaoh's chief advisers to drive the "barbarians" from their beloved Egypt and reclaim what is "rightfully" theirs.

With a few twists and turns along the way of course...
