This was the first Amelia Peabody Emerson book I read. Since then I have read the entire series several times and am well and truly hooked. They are such involving characters you easily get pulled into the family. You get to know them really well and in this story you become concerned with the dynamic duo and there future together, and of course Ramses adds the his usually comic aspect, and it has very good twist at the end. It has the best ending I have read in quite a while, but then that is usual for Elizabeth Peters. It is very good reading.
