2nd in the amelia peabody series,
This review is from: Curse of the Pharaohs: second vol in series (Amelia Peabody) (Paperback)
Married to Emerson (very happily!) and with a young baby, Amelia thinks her excavating days are over. But when the widow of a dead archaeologist pleads with Emerson to come out to Egypt and investigate the 'curse' which is killing off the entire expedition team, Amelia is quick to leave the baby with Walter and Evelyn and get herself and her husband out of London.
Humourous pastiche, this will remind you of Agatha Christie at her most camp, but the wit of Amelia and the fascinating chemistry between her and Emerson is a winning formula. Great escapist read.
