My favorite of this series so far. Emerson and Peabody return to Egypt alone. They hope to recreate their time before Ramses but Emerson is kidnapped and instead Peabody must rescue him and than hold things together because he has amnesia and remembers nothing of the past. Very good book
This book is a hardback book.
This book didn't seem to be as well thought out as many of the Peabody series. It is still good, but just not quite up to her standard with the other books.
oooooh! What a delicious complex plot. Amelia and Emerson are back in Egypt. Evil on their tail. I pride myself at guessing endings. This one threw me for a loop! Great read!!!!!
This was a really enjoyable read.
Very good. Archeology and a good mystery !
If you are an Amelia Peabody fan then you'll love this one.
I am really enjoying the book. I have read many of the later books in the series. It is nice to get the beginning of the story.
This is probably my fave of this series. As intended, it takes you back to the beginning of the characters' relationship.
The best in the series after "The Crocdile on the Sandbank"! Emerson has amnesia and does not remember anything from his past, including Amelia!
Victorian age archaeologists Amelia Peabody and autocratic husband Emerson Radcliffe are on yet another dig in Egypt, this time without formidable teenaged son Ramses, left back in England along with Nefret, the young girl brought out of the desert in secret circumstances during the last expedition (The Last Camel Died at Noon). These circumstances, amid rumors of a lost oasis rich in treasure, lead before long to Emerson's kidnapping; his rescue by indomitable Amelia and ever-faithful Abdullah; and Emerson's post-rescue amnesia. None of this halts the explorations at a tomb that Amelia hopes will turn out to be that of Nefertiti. Much help is provided by philanthropist-amateur archaeologist Cyrus Vandergelt, an American somewhat smitten with Amelia. But enemies old and new abound--ambushes, attacks, and villains in disguise proliferate in exasperating confusion--until the inevitable happy ending and the defeat of all foes, including the equally inevitable Master Criminal.
Amelia Peabody and her husband, Emerson travel up the Nile in search of Nefertiti's tomb.
--Another absolutely rollicking book in the Amelia Peabody series--
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer "Amelia Peabody Emerson, archeologist extraordinaire, and arguably the most potent female force to hit Egypt since Cleopatra, is digging in again."
Aboard a boat traveling up the Nile, their delightful(but catastrophically precocious) son, Ramses, having been left back in England, Amelia Peabody and her husband, Emerson, just might have a second honeymoon while they search for Nefertitti's tomb. On the other hand, they might be heading toward murder. Or worse.
A beautiful, exotic slave woman, an enigmatic Oriental cat, and a den of conspirators unite in attempts to snatch away Amelia's happiness unless she reveals a secret she cannot ethically disclose.
So now, as the couple arrives at the remote desert site of Amarna, they will confront danger behind the sand dunes, a nefarious kidnapping plot, and a villain in disguise among their own retinue. Amelia is tantalizingly close to the most fabulous discovery since King Tut's tomb, but as hard as she digs, what she uncovers is a shocking present-day peril: the loss of treasures far more precious than any antiquity--her husband's love or both their lives.
