Undeterred by world war and enemy submarines, Amelia and Emerson set sail once again for Egypt, where ghosts of an ancient past and spectres of a present-day evil hover silently over an inscrutable land. In the autumn of 1915 Cairo is transformed into an army camp teeming with enemy agents and shockingly bold tomb robbers are brazenly desecrating the ancient sites. Amelia seeks refuge at a remote dig in Luxor, but this provides no guarantee of safety when she discovers a fresh corpse in an ancient tomb.

Elizabeth Peters is a master with the English Language! Her dry sense of humor has me chuckling continuously throughout the books. I also love the fact that they imply, but don't go into graphic detail with the violence and intimacy. Barbara Rosenblats narration is wonderful, and make the book three dimensional. She has, over many books given life to a head strong brilliant little Ramses, to an adult young man Ramses. Her narration enlivens the spirit in which the books are written.
