THE MAN FROM CROCODILOPOLIS

I am pleased to say that my latest short historical crime story is published today in

Corocodil

The Book of Extraordinary Historical Mystery Stories, an anthology  edited by Maxim Jakubowski for Mango Publishing. The story is set in Alexandria during  ancient Egypt’s Ptolemaic era and introduces  Hanufer, the overseer of police and Sabu, his sergeant. I hope to follow this up with at least one novel.

Alexandria is the city founded by Alexander the Great and was home to the Pharos Lighthouse and to the great Library of Alexandria. It was essentially a Greek city in ancient Egypt.

This is Hanufer’s first case upon being appointed by the pharaoh, Ptolemy Philadelphus himself. The body of a murdered slave is hauled out of the lake and before he can begin to track down the murderer he must first find out who the slave is and who he belonged to.
