With those in her circle suddenly plagued by a series of "accidents", Amelia attempts to connect these troubling threads into a pattern. But her investigation is setting her on a collision course with an adversary more formidable than any she has ever encountered.
Romantic Times Award Winner - Best Historical Mystery, 2003
"This is an enjoyable read in its own right, powered by evocative depictions of 1919 Egypt and the engaging voice of Amelia herself, a bright, independent woman, who relishes her role as family matriarch. Her affectionate, give-and-take relationship with her Egyptologist husband, Emerson, continues to enchant." (Publishers Weekly)

Abriged to Incomprehensibility
Hold out for the unabridged verion of this book. The abridged version is mangled.
Instead of having brief exposition to explain what happened during the 'lost paragraphs', this abridgement just chucks out sections willy nilly, making it almost impossible to comprehend what's going on.
Awful. Awful. Awful.

abridged versions are terrible
After reading/listening to all the Amelia Peabody books I was VERY disappointed to see that several of them are only available in an abridged version. Half the story was gone including all the subtle action which makes this series so fantastic. Why, after producing 12 books would they choose to ruin 3 of them by only recording abridged versions? HUGE LETDOWN.
