Publisher's Summary

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. But are the Emersons in even darker danger with the intervention of one of Amelias oldest and most dangerous adversaries? Tantalizing clues suggest this might be so, and point toward an archaeological discovery of unparalleled importance - and the resurrection of a voice that has been silent for millennia.

Unabridged finally!

As a fan of the series, I'm so excited to finally have the missing books available in unabridged audio.

Lord of the Silent

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.

always a joy

The Amelia Peabody stories are in my view absolutely great when read by Barbara Rosenblatt. I can find now fault except that the story was maybe not quite as good as some of the others in the series.
For newcomers to the series start with "crocodiles on the sandbank" read by Barbara Rosenblatt, it really makes a big difference who the narrator is.

Enjoy

Admirable Follow-Up 2 "He Shall Thunder in the Sky

Fans of Elizabeth Peter's "Amelia Peabody" series will not be disappointed with "Lord of the Silent". The progression of character development is good. The story moves very quickly in some sections (almost too quickly) but the story is sound.
Barbara Rosenblat as the narrator is terrific as usual with only a few minor slips in character.
I would love to find more writers and series as entertaining as this! Good, clean, fun!

Excellent plot twists

interesting shift to the younger Emersons adds a different slant to the story. one doesn't tire of the stories, always a fresh look at murder and adventure.

Lighter than the previous Emerson story but just wonderful

I have come to love the Emerson family and this book did not disappoint. Enjoyable to see Ramses continue to grow and be more like his father. Ending came a bit quick but I thoroughly enjoyed my journey with this remarkable family and look forward to the next

Another well crafted story

My only sorrow is Thai know these tales are coming to an end. Only a few more chances left to be a part of the eccentric and delightful Emerson family And TO Enjoy Peters tongue in cheek humorous and loving portrayal of her characters
Barbara Rosenblat is unequaled in her narrational abilities I believe Amelia would agree

good, but missed something

I think it has to do with Ramses being more settled I guess.

the story was interesting so all I can think is the change in character or characters.
