Description

In her best-selling Amelia Peabody mysteries, author Elizabeth Peters has created an award-winning mixture of vivid archeological detail, finely-tuned suspense, and witty romance. Peters' mysteries are so irresistible, The Washington Post Book World says, "the public library needs to keep her books under lock and key." This, the 12th Amelia Peabody mystery, opens in 1914. As the tides of war rise, Egypt is threatened by attacks. Espionage abounds, pulling in several members of the Peabody Emerson household even as they embark on a new archeological season. Amidst a growing tangle of disguises and deceptions, Emerson's nemesis, the Master Criminal, appears. As increasing perils threaten the Peabody Emersons, their expedition, and Egypt, help arrives from a most unlikely source. He Shall Thunder in the Sky is a treasure-absorbing, intriguing, and highly entertaining. And the surprising resolution is one that leaves even the unflappable Amelia thunderstruck.

Professional reviews

"Amelia Peabody Emerson and her family are up to their necks in the intrigue, disguises and arms sales of WWII. Beyond the plot are the inevitable romances that might come to fruition, the evil nemesis who might turn up and kidnap somebody, and the final revelation at the costume ball. As for narrator Barbara Rosenblat--can we even imagine anyone else as Amelia Peabody? She captures each accent, each distinct family member, each of Emerson's monosyllables, which in her capable hands become whole sentences. But most of all she is Amelia Peabody, whose haughty tone, self-deprecation (but never apology), and passion for her husband still shine through after 12 books. Like chocolate and peanut butter, Barbara Rosenblat and Elizabeth Peters are a perfect match. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
