Publisher's Summary

After an adventurous season spent excavating at Dahshoor, and narrowly averting the clutches of the Master Criminal, Victorian Egyptologist Amelia Peabody Emerson and her spouse prepare for a quiet summer in England. The social and domestic routine, though interrupted by the precocious escapades of their only child, Ramses, hardly seems much of a challenge for the indomitable Emersons. But, rest assured, dear reader...domesticity does not prevail. When a night watchman mysteriously dies in front of the mummy Lady Henutmehit in the Egyptian room of the British Museum, Amelia is on the scene with her trusty parasol, ready to do battle with the malignant mummy.
Despite the appearance of an ancient sem priest and cryptic notes in hieroglyphics, Amelia surmises that a less-ancient villain is at work, a villain with evil plans for select members of the British archeological community, including her beloved Emerson. Is the villain plotting Emerson's demise, or something even more sinister?

Excellent Narrator

For fans of the Amelia Peabody series, I highly recommend Ms Rosenblat's narration. She provides Amelia with a lovely british accent and appropriate voices for the other various characters. From a gruff and husky Emerson to the high and childlike Ramses her narration is completely entertaining. As this is the 5th Amelia Peabody narration I have listened to, three by Ms Rosenblat, I have established a definite preference for her's.

the Amelia Peabody Series by Elizabeth Peters

I am thoroughly enjoying this series, referred to me by a dear friend. I highly recommend this series. I must admitt that the reader (Barbara Rosenblat) has truly made the series live. Also because i enjoy many "period" movies it is easy to place faces, in my minds eye, with each character due of course to the reading of Ms. Rosenblat. Therefore you will understand that when Ms. Rosenblat is not the reader it is a great disappointment. I am now on book 8 "The Hippopotamus Pool" and only one book was not the reader I am so endeared. But please donot allow this to discourage one from reading them all! Many many hours of enjoyment await you all, Robbin Wms
