* Touchstone brings up foreign language edition, but there is one in English.
You said you have read Pauline Gedge, but she has two newish books out:
The Twice Born and Seer of Egypt They seem to be only published in Canada, but are available on Amazon
Also Michelle Moran has a new book Cleopatra's Daughter which is out in the UK but not yet released in the US.
Nick Drake's new one seems to be only available in the UK
Thats all I can come up with now. I will post more later if they come to me.
The second Brad Geagley book does take place in Babylon, but its still the Egyptian investigator and I enjoyed it more than the first one.
And Colleen McCullough has a wonderful HF series The Masters of Rome that is set at the end of the Roman Republic. The last couple of books involve Egypt. The series isn't done, but the author is not able to see very well anymore and has said that makes it very difficult to do the necessary research, so I don't know if there will be more or not.
First Man in Rome
The Grass Crown
The October Horse (Includes Cleo)
Antony and Cleopatra
They are very good, and quite complex in terms of characters, history and plot, so I don't know if you could really only read the last 2 and 'get' everything.
Good luck and hope you enjoy.
