From the lost journals of archaeologist Amelia Peabody comes a chronicle from the “missing years”—a tale of adventure, bravery, and terror.

Readers have long wondered what befell the Emerson clan during the years before the Great War. Now, at last, the silence is broken and the truth revealed of a perilous journey to a secret and mysterious place hidden deep in the heart of the unforgiving desert. An adventure prompted by loyalty to an endangered friend—and spurred on by lies and treachery—leads Amelia Peabody and her intrepid family into a nest of vipers lying in wait at a remote mountain fortress. And when a dark past and a shocking mystery are ultimately discovered, a loved one may be lost forever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not my favourite but still a good read! I love the Emerson family, and I love reading about their adventures. This book wasn't my favourite, mainly because it's a "lost" year of Amelia's journals, and takes us a number of years back into the past, well before the current situation, when the make-up of the Emerson family was quite different. All the things I love about the Amelia Peabody books are here - the laugh-out-loud-funny snappy repartee between Emerson and Amelia, the exciting adventures the family ALWAYS manages to get themselves into, the fun of following along with how the family always manages to not only survive the dramas, but come out on top every time. If this story had been presented in sequence I am sure I would have loved it. As it is, I'm anxious to get back into the present, and find out what happens next for the current Emersom family members so while this was entertaining, it was not a favourite. Still a good read by a fantastic writer.
