Inquest on Imhotep - Beyond the White Walls

A five thousand year old tomb, the gods of Ancient Egypt, secret societies, and a love story that transcends time are some of the ingredients in this mix of occultism, archaeology, romance and power politics.

When an amateur archaeologist locates the lost tomb of Imhotep, architect of Egypt's Step Pyramid at Saqqara and first commoner to be fully deified as the god of Medicine, the stage is set for a combat between rival incarnations of good and evil. Caught in the maelstrom is the owner of the property where the tomb has been discovered. Helped by an alluring, enigmatic woman he falls in love with, he discovers the reality behind the forces at play, a reality resulting form the machinations of a powerful modern day sect claiming Imhotep as their godhead. Moving between Cairo, Siena, Turin and the temples of the Nile valley, INQUEST ON IMHOTEP is a thriller where time and location form a single dimension, in which past and present fuse in a kaleidoscope of events and emotions.   




Professional Reviews
Sharing in the mystery of Immortality, by Erika Borsos, (Top 500 Reviewer) Gulf Coastof FL. USA
In Inquest on Imhotep, Derek Adie Flower creates an eerie feeling of mystery and intrigue right from the beginning. It turns into an irresistible reading experience straight through to the end. The author weaves fascinating facts from Egyptian history into the plot. He describes the climate, the landscape and the Nile superbly. The reader learns of Egyptian burial customs and political intrigues of the times. However, most fascinating is how the author weaves two secret opposing societies into the plot. The author carefully weaves romance into the story along with another murder or two, and some complex political intrigues within the secret societies. The novel is fast-paced and exciting. It is difficult to put down once started. There is a richness and depth which keeps the reader wanting more. Also, subtle twists in the plot provide a spicy flavor. The author's superior knowledge of Egyptology is evident throughout. The characters in the novel are well fleshed out and realistic. The author provides harrowing escapes from the dark forces with a very satisfying resolution, but the evil forces are not totally eliminated. Instead, they undergo a transition and morph into a different version of themselves.
This is an intense and fun reading experience. Erika Borsos [pepper flower]


Debra Gaynor, Hawesville, KY USA (amazon.com)

A well-written plot and well-developed characters will capture the reader's interest and draw them into the story. Flower's has an understated style. Fans will want to savor this book.

A Good Read! Mystery and History! 5 star


A Good Read! Mystery & History!

In this novel we are taken to the mystical land of Egypt where an ancient tomb has been discovered by archaeologist, Christopher Grant. You would think this would bring great excitement but there are forces at work that do not want this tomb to be opened by anyone except themselves, and they will stop at nothing to make sure this does not happen.
Chris, as he was just about to announce his find, dies unexpectedly and the owner of the villa he was renting flies to Egypt to take care of his villa.
After arriving there a reporter, Jim Collings, comes to see him and tells him that it was his understanding, after talking with Chris on the phone, that he had found the tomb of Imhotep on that very property. This was a shock and surprise to the owner who was hesitant to believe it. Several days after his visit, Jim is also found dead and the owner begins to realize something sinister maybe going on.
Upon doing research, the villa's owner learns that Imhotep achieved fame in his life and received many titles from his Pharaoh. He was a High Priest, Magician, and Healer, to name a few. He was certainly an important figure in Egyptian history and greatly revered to this day by many.
Shortly after he is visited by a psychic, Madame Serafim, who fills him in on more of the history of Imhotep and the groups that still worship and serve him in present day, including herself. Some groups good, and some very evil, who will stop at nothing to have their way. Thrown into the mix is a beautiful mysterious woman, named Meri de Rougemont, who has much information to add to the story and who becomes the true love of the villa's owner's heart. Her father, and the group he belongs to, plays an important part in the overall picture of the story. Now there is a race, good against evil, darkness against light, death and life hanging in the balance. Quite intense at times, who will come out the victor? You'll have to read this work to find out.
I enjoyed this novel. I liked the way the writer paints the picture of Egypt, its skies, and landscape, people and customs, and of course its history all influenced the story in a positive way. The storyline was well thought out and quite intense. The characters were also well defined, vivid and life-like, and the weaving of romance into the read added that personal touch that helps bring a story home. All in all a work that gives the reader just about every element they would want, murder, mystery, romance, good against evil, and a few surprise twists to keep you alert and charging on along the way. Very well done. Recommended
