The pharaoh Tutankhamun is dead, killed in a mysterious hunting accident. In theory, this should be good news for Huy, who was exiled from court - and prevented from working as a scribe - when Tutankhamun took the throne. Palace intrigue, though was never so simple. In the years since his exile, Huy has been eking out a living as a freelance problem solver - essentially the world s first private eye - and it s in that capacity that he s been hired once again, to find out exactly how Tutankhamun died. If Huy s employer were purely interested in the truth, that would be one thing. But he has an agenda of his own, which doesn t bode well for the suddenly friendless young queen. And in becoming his snoop-for-hire, Huy may have bought himself a lot more trouble than he s being paid to take on. A Chandler-style PI story in the second millennium BC - Western Morning News (UK)

At the end of her bestselling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who d been living in Indonesia when they met. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other, but also swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally married. (Both were survivors of previous bad divorces. Enough said.) But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government, which-after unexpectedly detaining Felipe at an American border crossing-gave the couple a choice: they could either get married, or Felipe would never be allowed to enter the country again. Having been effectively sentenced to wed, Gilbert tackled her fears of marriage by delving into this topic completely, trying with all her might to discover through historical research, interviews, and much personal reflection what this stubbornly enduring old institution actually is. Told with Gilbert s trademark wit, intelligence and compassion, Committed attempts to `turn on all the lights` when it comes to matrimony, frankly examining questions of compatibility, infatuation, fidelity, family tradition, social expectations, divorce risks and humbling responsibilities. Gilbert s memoir is ultimately a clear-eyed celebration of love with all the complexity and consequence that real love, in the real world, actually entails.
