The Two Kites by Robert J Muller is three books in one.

First, it is an alternate history. Imagine the European settlement of the America never made it to California.

Second, this book is a mystery, a murder and a stolen knife.

Finally, this is a work of art using over 150 classical Egyptian words, beautifully rendered hieroglyphic forms on every page.

Whether you read this book for the alternate history, the mystery, or the beauty of the production, you will not be disappointed.
