Elizabeth Peter's Amelia Peabody, along with her husband - Emerson, is an archaelogist and expert on Egyptian pyramids. Each year they spend time working on digs but danger, murder and young lovers "dog" each season. This book in the series is by far the most superb with masterful development of the characters, plot and sub-plots. The tension before all is resolved will please any mystery reader, particularly those that enjoy historical fiction.
The story is a combination of interweaving themes of love, intrigue, adventure and compassion. The development of the story is told from various main character's points of view.
I had a hard time putting it down.
