 —New York Times Book Review


The intrepid archeologist Amelia Peabody and her fearless family, the Emersons, are back in Egypt, and something very nasty is afoot in Lord of the SilentNew York Times bestselling Grandmaster Elizabeth Peters’s sparkling adventure with more riddles than the Sphinx and more close calls and stunning escapes than  an Indiana Jones movie. Reviewers are simply agog over Lord of the Silent, calling it, “Wonderfully entertaining” (Washington Times), “Deeply satisfying”  (Entertainment Weekly), and in the words of the Toronto Globe and Mail, “The hype is true. This is Peters’s best book.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my top 2 fave series' EVER!! This is book #13 in the Amelia Peabody series, and the stories and the characters never get dull or disappoint! I love this series as much now as I did when I read the very first book! What's great about the stories now is that with Ramses and Nefret grown up and married to each other, there are now four formidable Emersons instead of just two in the elder couple of Amelia and Emerson. The interplay between the four as they all adjust to the fact that the "children" are now grown and just as clever and resourseful as the parents creates entirely new and hilarious situations to enjoy for the reader. Of course, as is always the case with the Emersons, murder, mayhem and drama follows them everywhere, and this installment is no different. This season, the Emersons find when they return to Egypt, that it appears someone is impersonating "The Master Criminal" [who readers of the series will know died in Amelia's arms at the end of the previous book, after it being discovered who he actually was - you'll have to read the book to find out!] and so the family begins to investigate. The mystery is interesting and clever, and with four Emersons instead of just two running around Egypt utterly heedless of danger the entertainment factor is doubled. I absolutely adore this series! Elizabeth Peters has not only created, but manages to further develop and enhance these characters in a perfectly natural and wonderful way with each succeeding installment of the series. I look forward to the next installment!
