Praise for The Maya Papyrus
"The Maya Papyrus is an astonishingly well-crafted novel. Coady's Egypt - and Egyptians - come to breathtaking life. A massive cast of wholly believable characters drawn straight from the pages of history, a palpable setting, and a plot full of tension and bleak surprises seamlessly interweave to make this one of the best historical novels I've read in a very long time." L. M. Ironside, author of The Sekhmet Bed and The Crook and Flail
