The novel focuses on three main characters, and is written in a third person limited point of view, which subtly shifts among the three characters, the narrator speaking with each character's very different prejudices as each becomes the temporary main focus. These three characters, in order of appearance, are Gerald Winston Bey, an English Egyptologist; an Egyptian, Kāra, and a dragoman named Tadros. Kāra, being white-skinned, is mistaken by Bey for a Copt, though he is no Christian, and he has no respect for Arab Muslims, either. Kāra claims to be a descendent of Ahtka-Rā, High Priest of Ămen, whom he says ruled Rameses II as his puppet, including hiding the latter's death for two years--archaeology says Rameses reigned 67 years, but according to Kāra, he ruled only 65.

Definitely Not Oz, But a Fun Read30 October 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
I am a great fan of Baum's work. I was so surprised to find that he wrote a book for adults. Lots of intrigue and pitfalls with some nice historical facts. The characters are likable, but at times a bit over the top. Overall a quick, fun read.
