Lion in the Valley: The Amelia Peabody Series, Book 4 | [Elizabeth Peters]

Lion in the Valley: The Amelia Peabody Series, Book 4

The 1895-96 season promises to be an exceptional one for Amelia Peabody, her dashing Egyptologist husband Emerson, and their wild and precocious eight-year-old son, Ramses. The much-coveted burial chamber of the Black Pyramid in Dahshur is theirs for the digging. But the brazen moonlight abduction of Ramses - and an expedition subsequently cursed by misfortune and death - have alerted Amelia to the likely presence of her arch nemesis, the Master Criminal, notorious looter of the living and the dead.

Publisher's Summary

The 1895-96 season promises to be an exceptional one for Amelia Peabody, her dashing Egyptologist husband Emerson, and their wild and precocious eight-year-old son, Ramses. The much-coveted burial chamber of the Black Pyramid in Dahshur is theirs for the digging. But there is a great evil in the wind that roils the hot sands sweeping through the bustling streets and marketplaces of Cairo. The brazen moonlight abduction of Ramses - and an expedition subsequently cursed by misfortune and death - have alerted Amelia to the likely presence of her arch nemesis, the Master Criminal, notorious looter of the living and the dead. But it is far more than ill-gotten riches that motivate the evil genius this time around. For now the most valuable and elusive prize of all is nearly in his grasp: the meddling lady archaeologist who has sworn to deliver him to justice...Amelia Peabody!

Don't miss the rest of the Amelia Peabody series.

    "A great book"

    I really enjoy the Amelia Peabody series and happen to enjoy Susan O'Malley's Narration the best. I think she does an awesome job. So, to each his/her own.

    "Good book but?"

    This book is quite good, funny too, but the choice of narrator is baffling. What were they thinking? The only redeeming quality of this production is the book itself. Unfortunately, it is rendered nearly un-listenable by the amateur reading.

    "Wonderful Series"

    I began listening to the Amelia Peabody Series a few months ago and found that they are very addictive! Since Audible does not offer all the books Elizabeth Peters has written in this series I found myself searching for them everywhere. Wonderful books, wonderful narration, can't wait until I have read them all! (I'm not sure why the previous reviewer states the narration is done with an American accent, all the books I have heard in this series are done in an English accent).

    "Delightful"

    This irreverent character from a time when women were powerless "haus fraus" gives constant amusement. The narrator does a passable job of assuming different accents as needed.

    "Watch out!"

    This is from a fun series of books, made unlistenable by bad narration. These books feature a British heroine, but are narrated in an American accent. Unforgivable.
