Brad Geagley discusses his book, “Year of the Hyenas.” He begins by discussing how the book is a murder mystery set in ancient Egypt when the kingdom was at the height of its glory and power. Geagley explains that as a backdrop for his detective story he uses the mysterious death of Ramses III, which involved intrigue, ambition, greed, and crimes of passion. Geagley goes on to explain that he set out to write a Film Noir set in ancient Egypt, and with a protagonist modeled after Sam Spade, a very troubled detective who needs to be redeemed in someway. Later he goes on to discuss ancestor worship in ancient Egypt and how it lead to a focus on the importance of childbearing.
