    Amelia Peabody inherited two things from her father: a considerable fortune and an unbendable will. The first allowed her to indulge in her life's passion. Without the second, the mummy's curse would have made corpses of them all.

    "The Beginning of a Very Fun Series"
    Overall

    This is the beginning of a very enjoyable series. Elizabeth Peters has written a delightful set of books that take the reader to not so Ancient Egypt (before the great wars). A time when tombs were being discovered by Northern Europeans and they were sharing their finds with the world. We get glimpses of England and its class system along with some well deserved women's lib. These stories were enjoyed by our whole family. We found them to be a witty, mysterious and enlightening romp. The characters of Amelia Peabody, Radcliff Emerson, Rames, and Nefret all come alive in these pages.

    But let us not forget the addition of the narration by Barbara Rosenblatt. She has so many voices and adds them so well, that the enjoyment of the book as an Audible Selection cannot be beat. I now read the new Elizabeth Peter's stories and hear Ms. Rosenblatt's voices speak in my head. I also look for books that Ms Roseblatt has narrated and purchase them.

    We have enjoyed this whole series and you can understand why, as you are introduced to Cairo, the Souk, Amana, and the areas up and down the Nile. Each place is described in colorful detail.
