The story takes place in Great Britain and features highborn families, an archeologist and his wonderful family and not so wonderful relatives in a funny and highly entertaining chase for a vicious murderer disguised as an ancient Egyptian priest.
Ramses Emerson is emerging as a skilled investigator, Amelia herself is caught in the throngs of jealousy and Emerson is his usual irascible self.
Ramses disguises himself as a girl and finds that girls are more inhibiting than playing a street urchin.
Her performances always are a rare delight. Her work on the British accent could be improved at times.
Amelia Peabody Emerson succumbs to jealousy. Everyone can relate to this!
A must for any Elizabeth Peters and Barbara Rosenblat enthusiast!
