Autumn 1921. The Peabody-Emerson clan are enjoying a fruitful period of excavation in Egypt. But when they hear the alarming tale of a man’s mysterious death their digging turns to detecting. His widow is convinced her husband was the victim of a curse and implores the Emersons to find and return the small ‘deadly’ statue that killed him to the tomb from which it was stolen — before it claims another life. From bitter experience the Emersons know it would be a serious mistake to start chasing tomb robbers. But Amelia and family soon start to find the curse may be more real than ever imagined…

I can't wait for the next Peabody story... I really do think [Elizabeth Peters'] books are great entertainment.

If Indiana Jones were female, a wife and mother who lived in Victorian times, he would be Amelia Peabody.
