|Plot Summary of Drinker of Blood|
Lord Meren, the “eyes and ears of the Pharoah,” continues his search for the
assassins of Queen Nefertiti in this fifth episode (“Drinker of Blood”) of the popular Lynda
S. Robinson series. The special agent of King Tutankhamen narrows his suspects. He
knows he is dealing with a deadly enemy--who knows who'll be next. In this intricately
woven plot, Robinson sustains the interest she has established and in “Drinker of Blood”
Meren finds the noose tightening--around his own neck. Early on, he has been discredited
by enemies at the King's court and must go into hiding to try to prove his innocence. His
adopotetd son Kysen and daughter Bener, loyal that they are,
aid him in this episode. While we still do not know the final idenity of the Queen's killer,
Robinson apparently will reveal all next year. It's a long wait til then!
