THE MAHOTEP SYNOD In 1958 the janitor of the elementary school in the mountain coal town of Kimball is found brutally murdered. George Mahotep was not a native of the area and his background was a mystery. To a town where violent crime was virtually unknown, Mahotep's murder only added to the mystery. A group of gifted children who had befriended George never stop their search for his murderer. They call themselves the Mahotep Synod. Twenty-two years after the murder, after all have gone in different directions in their professional lives, they regroup in Kimball to solve the crime.
