From Publishers Weekly:

Robinson's books about Lord Meren, Eyes and Ears of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun, have been justly praised as one of the most engrossing and sophisticated historical mystery series running. This fifth entry (after Eater of Souls, 1997) is the first to disappoint, one in which the ever wily Meren conducts two investigations that never quite come together satisfactorily. First, he's secretly consumed with finding the person who poisoned Queen Nefertiti. He's narrowed the suspects to three men, but, to prevent the assassin from attacking the current pharaoh, he doesn't want to tell the teenage Tutankhamun about his investigation. Meanwhile, Tut commands Meren to investigate the death of a favorite guard who mysteriously died in the baboon pit at the royal zoo. Because he doesn't want to be deflected from his clandestine investigation of Nefertiti's death, Meren delegates the task to his aide Abu, who delegates it even further. While Meren relentlessly tracks down his three suspects, he must accompany Tut on a war party at the border. There, someone who sounds like Meren tries to kill Tut with Meren's own knife. Accused of the attempt, Meren escapes arrest and finds asylum with a crafty pirate, leaving his adopted son, Kysen, and daughter, Bener, to prove his innocence. The story is told from the alternating third-person viewpoints of Meren and Nefertiti, but the unmasking of Tut's assailant and his guard's killer are tied only peripherally to the former queen's murder. The plot, then, ends with an anticlimax that might have some readers feeling that, uncharacteristically, Robinson has led them through her usual intricate maze of political intrigue and religious infighting for naught. Major ad/promo.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Who killed Queen Nefertiti? Having established in Eater of Souls (1997) that the Egyptian queen did not die of the plague but was poisoned, Lord MerenFriend of King Tutankhamun, the boy pharaoh who succeeded his brothers Akhenaten and Smenkharecontinues his quest for the killer in this second entry in Robinson's trilogy. Acting on information received from his son Kysen's friend Othrys, the wily Mycenaean pirate, Meren focuses on three suspects: horse-breeder Dilalu, military officer Yamen, and merchant prince Zulaya. But everyone who knows anything about the dark business seems headed for an early grave, and someone who obviously doesn't want Meren stirring up the past frames him for treason and attempted murder, sending him into hiding. Robinson intersperses Meren's investigations with flashbacks to the ominously growing discord between Nefertiti and her husband, the heretic pharaoh Akhenaten, whose insistence that his people forsake their pantheon of gods in favor of his own patron, the sun god Aten, bodes disaster for anyone who stands in his wayand ultimately, it may well be, for his nation as well. The vivid mix of conflicts and incidents is diluted by Robinson's need to leave the deepest mysteries unplumbed till the final installment, which keeps Drinker of Blood from standing solidly on its own. Newcomers to Lord Meren's fine series of adventures are well-advised to start elsewhere. -- Copyright ©1998, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
