In Amelia’s seventh adventure, she and Emerson take passage on a boat travelling up the Nile, enjoying a second honeymoon while they search for Nefertiti’s tomb. On the other hand, they might be heading towards murder. An exotic slave woman, a Siamese cat and a den of conspirators unite to snatch away Amelia’s happiness unless she reveals a certain secret…and at the remote dig in Amarna what she uncovers is a shocking present-day peril: the loss of treasures far more precious than any antiquity – her husband’s love or both their lives!

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

A writer so popular that the public library has to keep her books under lock and key.

Think Miss Marple with early feminist gloss crossed with Indiana Jones... accomplished entertainment.
