The continuing story of Egyptologists Amelia Peabody Emerson and husband Radcliffe Emerson set during the late 1890s through the early 1920s. This book is the fifth (of 18--the latest published this year.) There's murder,chases,kidnappings,etc.

It isn't necessary to read them in order as the references to past books are few but there are recurring characters and they do age with each book.

Quite a good read!

Elizabeth Peters rocks! "The Last Camel Died at Noon' is IMO her BEST! (and I've read most of the series. In fact, I missed this one and read it after I had read several later tales of Amelia Peabody and her clan. Peters pulls out all stops in this book. This is desert adventure at its finest, lost civilization, evil vs good, bad guys vs good guys (which are different from evil vs good!) and written in the best proper English mannerisms! Her best, best, best. But I still recommend readers to read the series in order to get the best benefit of her writing and mystery.

first Amelia Peabody book I've read and it was great! I love history and Peters does a great job of exploring the Egyptian countryside. Can't wait to read the next ones.

This was a fun, very old fashioned, mystery set in the 1800s in Egypt. Lots or romance, intrigue, and a bit of history thrown in. I had never heard about Elizabeth Peters before but apparently, she's written quite a few books! I'll try and read a few more.

The last camel is really dead and how will Egyptologist Amelia Peabody, her dashing husband Radcliffe and their precocious son Ramses ever get out of the sun scorched desert. It witty dialogue and an antic sense of humor are for you, this is your mystery. It's funny and the plot twists and turns. Whatever killed that camel anyway?
