Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long live the Emersons! The Emerson family never disappoints! Yet again they get themselves embroiled in the affairs of others, leading to murder, mayhem and shenanigans, and delight to the reader! This time around, the Emersons have been warned away from a non-existent tomb, which of course makes Amelia determined to find it! They've also been begged for assistance by an old acquaintance, who's husband has become obsessed with a charlatan spiritualist. And if all that isn't enough, a plea arrives from an American military colonel, who's daughter appears to be in danger from unknown villians. Although, the girl doesn't seem to need protection from anyone, but Ramses may need protection from HER! As always, the so, so clever banter among the Emerson extended family - which now includes Nefret, and David - Abdullah's grandson - as well as the irrepressible Ramses - offers laughter and entertainment to the "gentle reader" as Amelia calls us. I never tire of the wonderful, interesting characters Elizabeth Peters has created, in these stories, and with each new installment of the series, the characters grow and develop and become even more charming and engrossing. I loved this and can't wait until the next book!
