Amelia Peabody inherited two things from her father: a considerable fortune and an unbendable will. The first allowed her to indulge in her life's passion. Without the second, the mummy's curse would have made corpses of them all.

Would you try another book from Philip Gardiner and/or Philip Gardiner?

You can't even hear the Naive New Age Rhetoric this guy is spewing forth in inaudible dribbles under the eerie New Age music. He drags it out so slowly, what little he has to say, that it is sheer torture.

Has Conspiracy Chronicles turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, there are some really important Conspiracy books in existence. This is not one of them.
