Perhaps it has something to do with what transpired the last time they investigated the ruins of the Black Pyramid. On that infamous occasion they came face-to-face with Sethos, that chameleon-like villain otherwise known as The Master Criminal. While successful in depriving this "genius of crime" of his ill-gotten treasure, they were thwarted in their attempts to capture him. He escaped into the night like a wily serpent, revenge embroidered upon his countenance.
It is inevitable that The Master Criminal should come face-to-face with the inimitable Amelia Peabody again, but this time it is not antiquities he is after, but Amelia herself!

A Delicious Confection
This series is a true delight. I have read all of the books, twice - but Barbara Rosenblat brings out every nuance and makes the audio books even more enjoyable. The characters come to life with her skillful narration. While these books are certainly full of suspense, they are so funny you will laugh out loud. As a bonus, Elizabeth Peters' PhD in Egyptology enables her to give credibility to her characters' adventures and lets her audience glimpse the Egypt that tourists do not see. Bet you can't listen to just one!

Love that Sethos!
This is a fun entry in the series. Elizabeth Peters has a talent for creating characters who the reader cannot wait to encounter time after time! Fortunately, she usually obliges and brings back the good guys! And here we have many of our favorites returning.
Barbara Rosenblat has become THE voice of Amelia Peabody and company. Count me among fans who look forward to her narration as much as we look forward to the next Amelia!
