In Ancient Egypt, newly-widowed Renisenb returns to her family home after several years away. Complications arise almost immediately as her father brings home a new concubine, Nofret, who begins to turn family members against each other. Just as Renisenb and her brothers realize what a danger Nofret is, she is found dead. Only Renisenb, the family scribe, and the wise family matriach realize the death was no accident, and together they set out to solve the mystery, as more family members are killed.
