Description

After an adventurous season spent excavating at Dahshoor, and narrowly averting the clutches of the Master Criminal, Victorian Egyptologist Amelia Peabody Emerson and her spouse prepare for a quiet summer in England. The social and domestic routine, though interrupted by the precocious escapades of their only child, Ramses, hardly seems much of a challenge for the indomitable Emersons.

But, rest assured, dear reader...domesticity does not prevail. When a night watchman mysteriously dies in front of the mummy Lady Henutmehit in the Egyptian room of the British Museum, Amelia is on the scene with her trusty parasol, ready to do battle with the malignant mummy.

Despite the appearance of an ancient sem priest and cryptic notes in hieroglyphics, Amelia surmises that a less-ancient villain is at work, a villain with evil plans for select members of the British archeological community, including her beloved Emerson. Is the villain plotting Emerson's demise, or something even more sinister?

Excellent

I've read all the books in this series but Barbara Rosenblat, one of the best narrators in the audiobook universe, brings a whole new level of enjoyment to the series. She is the perfect voice of Amelia and the rest of the characters.

Excellent Narrator

For fans of the Amelia Peabody series, I highly recommend Ms Rosenblat's narration. She provides Amelia with a lovely british accent and appropriate voices for the other various characters. From a gruff and husky Emerson to the high and childlike Ramses her narration is completely entertaining. As this is the 5th Amelia Peabody narration I have listened to, three by Ms Rosenblat, I have established a definite preference for her's.

Don't ask me!

Don't ask me! I am the last person to critique an Amelia Peabody book. That is because I am an unabashedly unashamed fan of the intrepid Feminist scholar and her dashing husband, Radcliffe's Emerson. So I refuse to critique on the ground that it will reveal me as hopelessly in love with the entire Amelia Peabody Series.

My favorite in the series so far!

This is the 5th book in the Amelia Peabody series that I have read and it was my favorite.

The two cousins of Ramses were added to the story, and that made the story more entertaining with the cousins different personalities. I love Ramses; so I enjoyed seeing his interactions with these children.

I loved the love story between Amelia and Emerson. They are such a great couple.

You still get the murder and the mystery in the plot, but the whole family plot is excellent too.

I thoroughly enjoyed the audible!

Barbara Rosenblat, the narrator, was also superb.

the Amelia Peabody Series by Elizabeth Peters

I am thoroughly enjoying this series, referred to me by a dear friend. I highly recommend this series. I must admitt that the reader (Barbara Rosenblat) has truly made the series live. Also because i enjoy many "period" movies it is easy to place faces, in my minds eye, with each character due of course to the reading of Ms. Rosenblat. Therefore you will understand that when Ms. Rosenblat is not the reader it is a great disappointment. I am now on book 8 "The Hippopotamus Pool" and only one book was not the reader I am so endeared. But please donot allow this to discourage one from reading them all! Many many hours of enjoyment await you all, Robbin Wms

Great always!

The books themselves are great, but Barbara Rosenblat's interpretation makes them come alive. It still amazes me how she can make you see the characters in your minds eye. I have listened to the series many times over the years and never get tired of the Emerson's adventures.

Love Elizabeth Peters!

Her books are wonderful, and having Barbara Rosenblat read them is even better. My first audiobook of hers was the ‘Curse of the Pharaohs’. She is Amelia Peabody, and I wouldn’t listen to any other person read it than Ms. Rosenblat. :)

Always good for a laugh

Deeds of the Disturber??? Elizabeth Peters
audio version performed by Barbara Rosenblat

4 stars
Deeds of the Disturber is the fifth book in Peter???s Amelia Peobody series. In this book, Amelia, her husband Radcliff Emerson and their precocious son Ramses have returned to England after a season of excavation and detection in Egypt. While Emerson sets about organizing his excavation notes and preparing for publication by the Oxford University Press, Amelia is burdened with the care of her obnoxious niece and nephew. The plot immediately thickens with the death of a night watchman and the desecration of a mummy at the British Museum. Investigating the crime takes Amelia, Emerson and the intrepid Ramses from the brothels and opium dens of Victorian London to Scotland Yard. The exciting climax occurs in the dark confines of the decaying, gothic Mauldy Manner.
This book is a pastiche of detective fiction and a spoof of Victorian society dramas. I adore Amelia Peobody. More than that, I adore Barbara Rosenblat???s talented interpretation of this entertaining series. Every voice, every inflection and especially every accent she employs is perfect. Rosenblat???s rendition of the young Ramses is one of the funniest things I???ve ever heard. It is worth listening to for this line alone, ???Fortunately, I???ve brought along a little nitroglycerin.???

Change of Pace

This Amelia Peabody book takes place mainly in England, rather than the adventurous Egypt. I was not sure I would enjoy it in a differnt locale, but the story was fast paced, exciting, and entertaining. Once again, Barbara Rosenblat lends excellent narration to the story. I have thoroughly enjoyed the British accent she uses with these characters. Much more so than the versions by Susan O'Mallay. Of books 1-6, this is by far my favorite.

Good but not quite as good as others

I love this series and this author. Elizabeth Peters is an extremely talented writer. I sometimes am amazed at the words she uses, and the phrasing. The words alone can evoke crystal clear understanding or feelings. Add to that the narration by Barbara Rosenblat and it is perfection. Rosenblat is an awesome performer. Her accents are terrific. She has a pronounced, excellent and consistent voice for all the characters regardless of whether they are man, woman, child, Scottish, Egyptian. etc. There is no one that could do a better job.

This book takes place in England rather than in Egypt as most of the books do. The murder and the mystery that surrounds it are okay, but not as interesting as ones in the other books. The part that was excellent was the plot line regarding Ramses and his cousins. Ramses is my very favorite character in the series and he is amusing and interesting in this book. Percy and Violet, his cousins, are visiting for a few weeks. They are about the same age as Ramses. I would get happy when the story turned to their plot line. Amelia Peabody Emerson is my hero. She is a cultured, brilliant and no nonsense person. She and her husband, Emerson, get quite frisky with one another, but it is win a draw the curtains sort of way - not explicit. Emerson is also an interesting character. He is blustery, valn, loud and intimidating. Emerson is also loving and sweet. I can see why Peabody is so in love with him.
