While it is not absolutely necessary, I think that it is really a good idea to read the Amelia Peabody series in chronological order. Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody character is a real hoot, as are all of the Peabody-Emerson family members. These are fun books and you can't help but pick up some knowledge of ancient Egyptian culture. And I like that Peters sets the books to the late 19th to early 20th century-- giving you a taste of the contemporary Egyptian culture at that time, which was changing so rapidly due to the influx of Europeans (and Americans) into the upper Nile area.

Plot is a little weak, you really have to read it for the characters, all of whom have appeared in her previous books. This shouldn't be the first Amelia Peabody mystery you tackle.
