Jacqueline is amused at the group's eccentricities until history begins to repeat itself. A dangerous practical joker recreates famous 15th-century murder methods: beheading, poisoning, smothering, and even drowning in a butt of malmsey. As the jokes become more and more macabre, one at last proves fatal.
Jacqueline puts all her observations together for a dazzling solution that will surprise even the most attentive listener.

"Highly entertaining." (The New York Times)
I love this Amelia Peabody series. The heroine is a feisty woman based in the late 1800's early 1900's. I have always been interested in Egyptology and this is a wonderful mystery series set in this context. Early feminine Activist. Great humor and character development.
