Publisher's Summary

The Great War has ended at last. Archaeologist Amelia Peabody and her husband, Emerson, the distinguished Egyptologist, no longer fear for the life of their daring son, Ramses, now free from his dangerous wartime obligations to British Intelligence. Delightful new additions to the growing Emerson family and new wonders waiting to be discovered beneath the shifting Egyptian sands mark a time of new beginnings in Luxor.

However, the theft of valuable antiquities from the home of a friend - including a magnificent gold bracelet adorned with the image of the goddess Hathor - causes great concern. Ramses' encounter with a woman costumed in the veil and gold crown of Hathor herself only deepens the mystery.

With those in her circle suddenly plagued by a series of accidents Amelia attempts to connect these troubling threads into a pattern. But her investigation is setting her on a collision course with an adversary more formidable than any she has ever encountered.

Performed by Barbara Rosenblat.

Children of the Storm

if you like this series you will love this book. I hate to see this series come to an end. it is a very relaxing, yet not boring, series if you enjoy a bit of history on the side.

Another great adventure in Egypt

The Emersons are again having a fine time trying to excavate when dastardly events continue to get in their way. Always humorous and full of intrigue, I highly recommend it.

Fabulous! Another amazing story

I completely enjoyed this book. The plot had many surprises I can’t wait to read the next one. Elizabeth Peters mixes suspense, romance and humor all in one story.

Good but not my favorite

Time spent with the Emerson's is always enjoyable, however this book was missing something for me. A little slow until the last quarter

loved it

best one yet and was much more complicated then the last two sadly only two more books. I was afraid with Ramses married that it would just get to be more a romance then mystery and excavation.

Addicted to Amelia

These books are so enjoyable. Glimpses of Egyptian archaeology (more or less -- locations, some characters such as Howard Carter who discovered Tut's tomb -- are indeed accurate) and history is part of it, but the characters are truly engaging. Barbara Rosenblat's performances perfectly capture their personalities, speech patterns, accents, etc. One begins to feel a part of the family and they're adventures.
