Publisher's Summary

Secrets never die....

October, 1923. Lady detective Olive Belgrave has a new case. Lady Agnes doesn’t believe in curses - especially ancient curses - and she hires Olive to prove her uncle wasn’t the victim of a malevolent mummy. Olive investigates and discovers the truth is much worse - it’s murder. Can Olive debunk the curse and reveal the true culprit before the mummy curse claims another victim? 

The Egyptian Antiquities Murder is the third book in the High Society Lady Detective series, a cozy historical series set in 1920s England. If you enjoy lighthearted novels reminiscent of the Golden Age of detective fiction with spirited protagonists and perplexing mysteries, you’ll love the High Society Lady Detective Series from USA Today best-seller Sara Rosett.

An easy to listen to story

I enjoyed listening to this audio book but found the sprinkling of american vocabulary into post WW1 London irritating as it pulled me away from the story. I also think that I was expecting more depth in terms of plot and characterization than I found in this very light murder mystery.

I thought that the narrator had a good range of voices for the different characters but the accent that she used for the main character was too flat and did not differentiate between the heroine speaking or relating something she had seen or done.

A Delightful Cozy Mystery

Olive is a great character. She's smart, methodical and diligent. She manages to politely expose family secrets and solve a murder. The characters are well written and the solution of the mystery isn't obvious. I also like the friendship relationship between Jasper and Olive. I look forward to seeing how their friendship continues to grow. I enjoy this series and eagerly wait for the next book.

For the Love of Egyptology

I guess it was inevitable that a series about a high society lady in the 1920's would eventually have to include a story about Egyptology which was a craze at the time. It was also inevitable that such a book would have so many parallels with Elizabeth Peter’s series of books about the exploits of the fictional character Amelia Peabody. However, what was not so expected but in fact refreshing to see was the references made in the Story behind the Story section of the book giving recognition to Elizabeth Peters. This book was quite good, best so far in the series. If you enjoyed this book and subject matter, I encourage you to look up The Amelia Peabody series. Over the more than 18 or so books in the series, it covers the 40+ years of the lives of the characters, weaving a complex story line with major characters fading into and out of the story line. Sara Rosett’s book The Egyptian Antiquities Murder is a great introduction to these books but a great read in its own right.

Sadly, it's not Amelia Peabody

I bought this because I read all the Amelia Peabody books and was hoping this would serve as a substitute. Sadly, no comparison even though the author acknowledges homage to Elizabeth Peters. I liked the first two books in the High Society Lady Detective series better. I was happy Olive was employed again and Lady Agnes seemed a good employer, but the two diverged: Lady Agnes wanted findings her own way, and Olive wanted the truth. Jasper makes a few welcome appearances, although I must say I was disappointed when he and Olive went to Lady Agnes with new information and their interpretation of the evidence was turned on its head -- I was disappointed because Olive AND JASPER had reached their conclusions, yet Lady Agnes laid all the blame on Olive and Jasper let her. On the other hand, Olive and Jasper generally seem to be an ideal couple, and I wonder when they're going to realize it? There are enough red herrings and false starts to keep the reader guessing whodunit. I most enjoyed the name of the cat, Lapis. There were always cats in the Peabody books.

A great performance!

It’s not possible for me to love this series more! Everything about it is so enjoyable; from the narration that transports you to another era, to the well written plot line, to the red herrings along the way. Olive is a fantastic lead character with depth, and the side characters compliment the story very well. Seriously, if you’re at all on the fence trust me on this, you’ll love it!

Lovely Cozy

This is a light, fun listen. I especially appreciate the author’s addition of “The Story Behind the Story” at the end of the book. Highly recommended!

A good listen

This is more of an old school murder mystery. Characters carry the story with very little author narration. As with all mysteries like this, you have to pay attention…or just wait till the end for the answer…a quick and enjoyable listen with good, well paced narration. Liked it.

Love this series of cozy mysteries

My husband and I have been enjoying listening to this series as we travel. Egyptian Antiquities had some good red herrings which left me wondering who the villain really was since several were quite plausible. I wasn't 100% sure until the reveal.

The narrator, Elizabeth Klett, does a good job voicing the characters making it all the more enjoyable. We love the series and look forward to listening to more.

A Complicated Mystery

Just the thing when you don't want to be able to guess who did it. Another wonderful romp through the early '20's!
