The North Wind Descends

Holmes, N.L.


Egyptian diplomat Hani is sent to Syria to investigate the horrific murder of a Babylonian ambassador under the very roof of the provincial governor. The chief suspect turns out to have a connection with Hani's own family and some shady political dealing too.

"Masterful characterization and impressively intricate storylines notwithstanding, what makes these novels impossible to put down is Holmes’ ability to immerse readers in a richly described ancient Egypt... Comparable to landmark mystery sagas like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot stories, this series will enthrall historical fiction and mystery fans alike. Starred review—Blue Ink Reviews
"A complex, attention-holding cast... However, it is small details that make this ancient world come alive."--Clarion Foreward Reviews
