Description

The spunky Victorian Egyptologist Amelia Peabody Emerson has returned to the exotic Nile valley. Parasol aloft and hot on the trail of an unexplored tomb, she must outwit a shadowy evildoer, a questionable antiquities dealer, and her loquacious son, Ramses. Washington Post Book World praises Elizabeth Peters: "A writer so popular that the public library has to keep her books under lock and key."

Professional reviews

"Egyptologist Amelia Peabody and her intrepid family find themselves hard on the heels of a queen's tomb--and a murderer. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat, an American who lived for many years in England, is tops in the field for accuracy and consistency of accents, appropriateness of voices and understanding of emotional cues. She has particular fun with this series, a combination of high adventure, comedy of manners and tongue-in-cheek parody. Her voice for young Ramses, who has been called the most obnoxious child ever born of woman or writer, is especially amusing. While this book isn't the strongest of the series., Rosenblat once again deserves kudos for her interpretation. S.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
