Best-selling mystery author Elizabeth Peters has captured the hearts of thousands of readers with her spunky Victorian Egyptologist, Amelia Peabody Emerson. In Seeing a Large Cat, Amelia must ensnare a modern-day killer, a bogus spiritualist, and a predatory debutante in the awesome Valley of the Kings. Someone is sending ominous messages: "Stay away from tomb Twenty-A!" Intrigued, parasol-wielding Amelia won't rest until she finds the forbidden burial site.

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.

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!!

Convinced that the tomb of the little-known King Tutankhamen lies somewhere in the Valley of the Kings, eminent Egyptologist Radcliffe Emerson and his intrepid wife, Amelia Peabody, seem to have hit a wall. Having been banned forever from the East Valley, Emerson, against Amelia's advice, has tried desperately to persuade Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter to relinquish their digging rights.

I LOVE EP's books and BR's narration. I have read and/or listened to all of Amelia & Co's adventures. Without a doubt this is my favorite series of all time (including that Harry whats his name...). To me this particular book was a bit of a let down because it seems like this is where the story ends in time...also the pace was slow (but I guess the characters are older...)...Perhaps one more book set after Lord C dies (from the Curse ???) and Howard makes it up with them asking them to come back and help with the restoration...maybe this time someone could kidnap Kevin O"Connel and Emerson and Amelia could rescue him??? Sigh....I hope there are more books to come from the earlier days (and "lost" journals) - Your most eager (or at least one of your most eager) fans - Karen

P.S. Audible you are missing some of the full length stories and I am hoping to complete my audio library so get to getting them :-)
