Publisher's Summary

After an adventurous season spent excavating at Dahshoor, and narrowly averting the clutches of the Master Criminal, Victorian Egyptologist Amelia Peabody Emerson and her spouse prepare for a quiet summer in England. The social and domestic routine, though interrupted by the precocious escapades of their only child, Ramses, hardly seems much of a challenge for the indomitable Emersons.

But, rest assured, dear reader...domesticity does not prevail. When a night watchman mysteriously dies in front of the mummy Lady Henutmehit in the Egyptian room of the British Museum, Amelia is on the scene with her trusty parasol, ready to do battle with the malignant mummy.

Despite the appearance of an ancient sem priest and cryptic notes in hieroglyphics, Amelia surmises that a less-ancient villain is at work, a villain with evil plans for select members of the British archeological community, including her beloved Emerson. Is the villain plotting Emerson's demise, or something even more sinister?

Don't miss the rest of the Amelia Peabody series.

    "Kept me guessing"

    Amelia might be a good detective but I have to say that she is a terrible mother. Good thing Emerson is around to take care of Ramses! She is so mean to him and though she might care in her heart, it does not come across that way.

    The story is interesting and kept me guessing till the end.

    "Don't ask me!"

    Don't ask me! I am the last person to critique an Amelia Peabody book. That is because I am an unabashedly unashamed fan of the intrepid Feminist scholar and her dashing husband, Radcliffe's Emerson. So I refuse to critique on the ground that it will reveal me as hopelessly in love with the entire Amelia Peabody Series.

    "Great Voices, but..."

    The performer did great with the voices, but her very audible and frequent swallowing was very distracting. It almost made me stop listening to the book all together.

    Barbara Rosenblatt's reading of Elizabeth Peters' fun, well-developed characters is superb! Smart, funny, and interesting, yet wonderfully touching at the same time.
