A Killing at El Kab

No one has died, but a fictional character will!

Last week Janice Susan May (Patterson) and her husband Hiram came to visit Elkab for a few days. Susan is writing a novel set in the Elkab dig house, so Dirk extended her an invitation to come and really get to know the place. She wrote another book, the Egyptian File, which also mentions Elkab. I haven’t read it yet, but it is next on my list!

The egyptian File

We had a great time thinking about the possible plot points, hearing about the characters, speculating on which room would be best for a murder, and generally trying to get Susan to divulge secret details of the book.

She says none of the characters are going to be based on real life (any of us!) We will have to read it and find out…  Look for it this fall, under the title A Killing at El Kab, by Janice Patterson.
