    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. 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.

    If you could sum up He Shall Thunder in the Sky in three words, what would they be?

    Best of series!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Every plot and subplot came with a new twist to the story. More happens to the characters in this book than in all the others in the series, except for perhaps, The Last Camel Died at Noon. With many "ah ha" moments to round out the characters, on point historical details, and revelations this is my favorite book of the Amelia Peabody series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Nefret's confession to Amelia about her feelings for and earlier relationship with Rames was unexpected.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Sethos' final moments with the Emersons.

    Undeterred by world war and enemy submarines, Amelia Peabody, grandmaster Elizabeth Peters' indomitable archaeologist-sleuth, once again sets sail for Egypt, where ghosts of an ancient past and specters of a present-day evil hover silently over an inscrutable land.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There's a good story in there somewhere, but abridging this book really degraded the plot.


    Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She's always a terrific narrator!

    New York Times best-selling Grand Master Elizabeth Peters is at her stylish and suspenseful best in a richly woven tale of greed, treachery, and murder set against the tumultuous backdrop of wartime intrigue.

    Would you try another book from Elizabeth Peters and/or Barbara Rosenblat?

    I'm trying all of them; I'm a real fan of the series.


    What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

    She voices the characters so perfectly I can envision each one in my mind.


    Any additional comments?

    Unabridged versions leave gaps in the story and "Huh?" often popped up in my thoughts.
