The Golden One: An Amelia Peabody Novel of Suspense, Book 14 | [Elizabeth Peters]

The Golden One: An Amelia Peabody Novel of Suspense, Book 14

A new year, 1917, is dawning, and the Great War that ravages the world shows no sign of abating. Answering the siren call of Egypt once more, Amelia Peabody and her family arrive at their home in Luxor to learn of a new royal tomb ransacked by thieves. Soon an even more disturbing outrage concerns the intrepid clan of archaeologists: the freshly and savagely slain corpse of a thief defiling the ancient burial site. Yet this is nothing compared with the lethal fate that threatens Ramses.

Publisher's Summary

A new year, 1917, is dawning, and the Great War that ravages the world shows no sign of abating. Answering the siren call of Egypt once more, Amelia Peabody and her family arrive at their home in Luxor to learn of a new royal tomb ransacked by thieves. Soon an even more disturbing outrage concerns the intrepid clan of archaeologists: the freshly and savagely slain corpse of a thief defiling the ancient burial site.

Yet this is nothing compared with the lethal fate that threatens Ramses. Besieged by the British and defended by formidable Turkish and German forces, the fortified seaport of Gaza guards the gateway to the Holy Land. Answering a call he cannot refuse from British military intelligence, Ramses must journey to this ancient, fabled city to undertake a mission as personal as it is perilous. Death will surely be his lot if he is caught or exposed. Meanwhile, Ramses' wife, Nefret, guards a secret of her own....

Once again the incomparable and best-selling author carries us to a breathtaking realm of ancient wonders and crumbling splendor - from the hectic bustle of the Cairo markets to remote, sand-swept corners of the Egyptian desert where the gods of antiquity sleep. Returning visitors to the world of Amelia Peabody will be enthralled by the latest mesmerizing adventure from the award-winning grandmaster, and newcomers will succumb to her wiles as they are caught up in the tantalizing spell of the remarkable Elizabeth Peters and The Golden One.

    "Unabridged! Yay!"

    As an appreciative reader of the Amelia Peabody series I was thrilled to see this book in it's unabridged form. The performance by Barbara Rosenblat is unequaled in my listening experience. And the story is fun, humorous and interesting as are almost all in this series.
    Please continue to petition Audible to skip the abridged versions of this series or any other for that matter!

    "Real treat"

    You are within 5minutes completely in the story and that doesn't change until the last words are spoken.
    Looking forward to the next book

    "A manuscript lost (to me)"

    I have been a fan of the late Elizabeth Peters for years. I have also marveled at Ms. Rosenblat's flair for bring the words and characters to life. I thought that I had read & listened to all of her wonderful books. Then I discovered The Golden One...got it 2 days ago and just finished it today...What a pleasure to hear another chapter of the saga that I had missed, it helped connect the dots plus learning that Edward Washington was in the story was a nice surprise. I miss Elizabeth Peter's aka Barbara. WONDERFUL!!

    "The Golden One"

    The reader is excellent. I always enjoy the banter. The familial love is always there but not over sweet. The Peabody books are always fun.
