New York Times bestselling master of suspense, Elizabeth Peters, brings an exotic world of adventure, intrigue, and danger to vivid life, in a tale as powerful as ancient Egypt.

The Emersons have returned to the Valley of the Kings in 1922 and Amelia Peabody and her family look forward to delving once more into the age-old mysteries buried in Egypt's ever-shifting sands. But a widow's strange story -- and even stranger request -- is about to plunge them into a storm of secrets, treachery, and murder.

The woman, a well-known author, has come bearing an ill-gotten treasure -- a golden likeness of a forgotten king -- which she claims is cursed. She insists it has taken the life of her husband and unless it is returned to the tomb from which it was stolen, more people will die.

Amelia and her clan resolve to uncover the secrets of the statue's origins, setting off on a trail that twists and turns in directions they never anticipated -- and, perhaps, toward an old nemesis with unscrupulous new designs. But each step toward the truth seems to reveal another peril, suggesting to the intrepid Amelia that the curse is more than mere superstition. And its next victim might well be a beloved family member ... or Amelia Peabody herself.

A novel filled with riveting suspense, pulse-pounding action, and the vibrant life of a fascinating place and time, The Serpent on the Crown is the jewel in the crown of a grand master, the remarkable Elizabeth Peters.

Performed by Barbara Rosenblat

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book, and fantastic narration! This series of 18 books about a British family of archeaologists living and working in Egypt are wonderful! They are narrated by Barbara Rosenblat, who is absolutely phenomenal!! The way she manages to give different voices to all the characters is unbelievable - you will swear the book is being recorded by multiple readers. The book is great on its own, but Rosenblat's spirited, delightful narration adds an extra level to the story. Her narration of the verbal sparring between Amelia Peabody and her cranky crotchety, but brillian husband Emerson is nothing short of genius!! You will fall in love with this quirky family based on Rosenblat's reading of this wonderful book. This is an entire series of books that is even better as an audio book!! Get all of them - SERIOUSLY!!
