The Emersons are back in Egypt, the First World War is raging elsewhere and there is a dead body in a tomb ... typical Amelia Peabody territory.
If you've read the others you will love this one. All the usual characters are with us from Gargery the strange and unusual butler to Sethos the embarrassing illegitimate brother. Ramses and Nefret rejoice in married bliss (although it is very interesting to re-read the earlier books and see the changes in Ramses' character to make him a more useful, all round hero)and Amelia is still having dreams of Abdullah.
The villain in this novel is not the usual master criminal but the British Army and their attempts to involve Ramses in what they are doing. This is one plot line, the discovery of a new tomb replete with treasure is the other.
Maybe Amelia and Emerson are becoming unbelievable at times, but, what the hell .... this novel is funny, well written and enjoyable ... not one of the best in the series but head and shoulders above much else that is written these days !!

I am sad getting near the end of this series of books . We meet the third generation of the family and , needless to say , they are as colourful as the rest . I have never been to Egypt , but feel as if I have seen the pyramids through Ms Peters eyes . The mystery murder and general mayhem continue to enthral .... enjoy xxx

Another ripping yarn or as Abdullah says another year, another body. Ms Peters has managed another tall tale of mayhem. The Emersons and Vandergelts are on the hunt for hidden treasure when Ramses is not undertaking more work for the Intelligence (sic) services. It is all very good clean fun and a joy to read.

Jolly fun in Edwardian Egypt. Puzzles to solve, villains to catch & treasures to be uncovered. Every now & then the voice is not authentically British (railroad, rather than railway stations, a lack of prepositions & other things which the spell check will not allow me to enter!) but that has not spoilt the stories.
My only complaint, as always with Kindle, is that there is no facility to find out the number of a book in a series (unless it has a very short title) so that a series can be read in order.

I am mad about Egypt and its history and to have such wonderful characters and animals just makes its perfect. I have them all on my Kindle and woud now like tohave the actual books as I would read them again.

One again Peters has written a book a that I couldn't put down. A fan of the Amelia Peabody fan I look forward to each installment and she does not let me down. The family continues to expand, mystery continues to stop Emerson excavating and the mysterious Sethos continues to surprise. As always a fantastic read a must for lovers of the series.

I have now read the whole series. I enjoyed every one. Some are better than others but I felt a sense of great loss when there were no more. This is not great literature but it is great fun. I have been one of the irritating tourists in Egypt and loved recognising events and sites I had seen.
