Publisher's Summary

The Great War has ended at last. Archaeologist Amelia Peabody and her husband, Emerson, the distinguished Egyptologist, no longer fear for the life of their daring son, Ramses, now free from his dangerous wartime obligations to British Intelligence. Delightful new additions to the growing Emerson family and new wonders waiting to be discovered beneath the shifting Egyptian sands mark a time of new beginnings in Luxor.

However, the theft of valuable antiquities from the home of a friend - including a magnificent gold bracelet adorned with the image of the goddess Hathor - causes great concern. Ramses' encounter with a woman costumed in the veil and gold crown of Hathor herself only deepens the mystery.

With those in her circle suddenly plagued by a series of accidents Amelia attempts to connect these troubling threads into a pattern. But her investigation is setting her on a collision course with an adversary more formidable than any she has ever encountered.

Performed by Barbara Rosenblat.

    "Addicted to Amelia"

    These books are so enjoyable. Glimpses of Egyptian archaeology (more or less -- locations, some characters such as Howard Carter who discovered Tut's tomb -- are indeed accurate) and history is part of it, but the characters are truly engaging. Barbara Rosenblat's performances perfectly capture their personalities, speech patterns, accents, etc. One begins to feel a part of the family and they're adventures.

    "Another great adventure"

    Barbara Rosenblat brings one of the great Egyptologist detective couples to life again in another funny, gripping mystery. One learns so much about Egyptian culture, history, archaeology and her struggle for independence after WWI. it's a most enjoyable way to learn about this ancient civilization.

    "Children of the Storm"

    if you like this series you will love this book. I hate to see this series come to an end. it is a very relaxing, yet not boring, series if you enjoy a bit of history on the side.

    "the esteemed amelia peabody"

    it is always a joy to hear Barbara Rosenblatt read the Amelia Peabody stories. I enjoy the book so much more when Rosenblatt reads it to me than when I read it..If you are new to the series you you should start with"crocodiles on the sandbank" And don't forger to use the unabridged recording with Barbara Rosenblatt..
    You will be meeting very entertaining People that you will care deeply about. The murders and other interesting people is icing on the cake. Along the way you will learn a lot about the middle east ca 1900, learn lots of arceology and a lot about the ancient civilization in the middle east.

    I have listened to almost all of The Peabody books more than once. I recomend them wholeheartetly.
