Publisher's Summary

The indomitable Amelia Peabody and her husband, known to many as "the Father of Curses", are into archaeology and mischief again. This third in the series brings the reader once more into Egypt and the shady world of black market antiquities. The winter excavation season has hardly yet begun when Amelia stumbles onto what looks suspiciously like a ring of thieves.Amelia's not the type to take no for an answer, and pretty soon the Emerson family (Master Ramses, a prodigious young intellect is joining his parents for the first time) is tracking down a character known only as The Master Criminal. Or is the Master Criminal tracking them?

Finally, all of the Emersons go on a dig. In The Mummy Case, their son, Ramses, joins Amelia and her husband in Egypt. This season, Emerson has his heart set on giving Amelia her dream: the excavation of a pyramid. Along the way, the Emersons stumble across a master criminal and we learn just how loquacious Ramses is. If you like dry sarcasm, you will enjoy this series. Barbara Rosenblat is as wonderful as always. You may notice that there are two narrators for this series. You do not have to switch narrators to enjoy each volume in this series if you stick with Recorded Books and Barbara Rosenblat.

The Emersons and the mummy case - a must listen

Ms. Rosenblat's amazing narration of this series deserves some kind of award. An Oscar-of-audio books. She makes these already-great stories into masterpieces. She 'plays the roles' of the characters with a range from gruff manliness to sweet child and everything between.

The Mummy Case brings the Emersons back to Egypt, this time with precocious son Ramses along to enliven the tale. Their dig site is uninspiring, but the Master Criminal makes their lives interesting - and full of danger. And the Mummy Case comes and goes.

Amelia Peabody Emerson is hilarious and inspiring. Her stories are worth reading, and definitely worth listening to, if Ms. Rosenblat is doing the reading.
