Amelia Peabody is one of the good ones. She is a feminist, but totally loves her husband and child. She is a "busybody" but aren't all the good female investigators? In this one she and her husband are called to Egypt to investigate a recently discovered tomb - with a curse! Cats, kids, curses, killings.....this one has it all.

Amelia Peabody is at it again! After the birth of her and Emersons son, Ramses and a 5 year hiatus from Egypt they jump at the chance to take over digging at a cursed tomb site. Death follows them, frustrating their work, spooking their workers and leading to both Peabody and Emerson nearly killing each other in the process!

Great read!

The book is a fun read, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I remember enjoying the first book in the Amelia Peabody series, "Crocodile on the Sandbank." I assume that the introduction of Amelia and Emerson's son, Ramses, just a toddler in this book, means the inclusion of a new character in the series. I guessed the murderer early in the book, so for those who enjoy trying to solve a mystery, you'll probably find this unsatisfying. Sections in this book also are a little too "romancy," which is not surprising considering Peters is also Barbara Michaels.

But, I do like the characters, so I'll no doubt continue on with this series.

Amelia and Emerson return to Egypt to explore a site where its previous archeologist died-was the cause the curse or was he murdered?
Very good book

One of my absolute favorites in high school and beyond. I read this book, and the others in the series, many, many times.
