Summary

The spunky Victorian Egyptologist Amelia Peabody Emerson has returned to the exotic Nile valley. Parasol aloft and hot on the trail of an unexplored tomb, she must outwit a shadowy evildoer, a questionable antiquities dealer, and her loquacious son, Ramses. Washington Post Book World praises Elizabeth Peters: "A writer so popular that the public library has to keep her books under lock and key."
