When they joined us for breakfast, I was pleased to observe that Ramses looked more rested. y look was diminished. He was in full agreement with my decision that we might as well abandon our disguises. I didn’t suppose Mother would stand being confined to the harem for long, he remarked, selecting a piece of fruit from the tray. It is too inconvenient, I explained. We were running out of excuses for admitting strange men to our quarters

First, MWA Grandmaster Peters offers another amusing if wordy Egyptian archeology mystery, set in 1917 and replete with grave robbers, a murder, the discovery of a richly furnished tomb and a cast of thousands. Halfway through the book, this plot is annoyingly left dangling when the British recall the Emerson's brilliant son, Ramses, for an espionage assignment in Gaza, where he must determine if a newly powerful figure, Ismail Pasha, is really the Emerson family black sheep, Sethos, master criminal and secret agent.

Elizabeth Peters knew how to lighten a difficult subject by infusing it with humor caused by the chaos that follows the Emersons. The conclusion to Book 3 also falls flat. I was expecting something a lot more exciting and dangerous.

A new year, 1917, is dawning, and the Great War that ravages the world shows no sign of abating

I am hooked on Elizabeth Peter's "Amelia Peabody Mystery" books. I lost count of how many I've read and I've loved each and every one of them. This books finds Ramses and Nefret married, back in Egypt working with the elder Emersons on a dig. The plot centers on finding out who is making murder attempts on members of the family, and what the villan or villans are trying to hide. The "Master Criminal" is miraculously alive and well after supposedly dying in Peabody's arms in the last book, and there are all kinds of other twists and turns in the story and interesting new characters. If you love mysteries and archaeology, this book is a fun read.

Some years ago my husband recommended these mysteries both for Ms. Peters deft characterizations and for her knowledge of Egypt and her accurate portrayal of the practice of archeology in the early 20th century. I made the mistake of trying to read this book before any of the others. It's important to read these books in order to see the development of the characters and the way in whichthe author moves them through this particular part of history.
This book takes place during World War I. So there is a plot that centers around the excavation of various sites and a plot that has to do with the use of archeologists as spies. The plot is genuinely suspenseful and Ms. Peters takes great care to create characters that are both interesting and about whom you can care. However, the key to all of these books is the voice of their narrator, Amelia Peabody. If you don't like her you're not likely to like the books. I especially enjoy her wit. This is Amelia's husband (and fellow archeologist) Radcliffe Emerson dressing her down for a remark she's just made: `Peabody,' he said mildy `that is even more pompous and pedantic than your usual declarations. Do not suppose that the complexity of your syntax can conceal the inaccuracy of your conclusion.'

Always ahead of the "game" the Emersons succeed in their endeavors even if they have to stretch the truth a bit... Even when they are not confident that they have everything under control they are not afraid to confront the situation and act quickly to provide themselves the desired outcome.
This sequel has 3 "books" covering 3 situations that come together as one. Sub plots that follow through the Amelia Peabody series are referenced in this edition. And as always the action does not abate for very long! ....Lots of behavioral psychology and an ability to respond quickly when needed makes Amelia the smart lady that she is! (And her husband, Emerson, Nefret, and her handsome husband Rameses are quite the co conspirators for good!)

This season in the lives of the Emersons has everything the previous ones had and more--drama, romance, comedy, adventure, danger, spies, intrigue, and cats, plus all the usual characters and some surprises. And even an interview with the author, and her account of an Amelia tour.

Sethos keeps popping in and out playing more and more into the lives of our heroes. War combines to make this an interesting novel of Egyptology. Enjoy the read,

I love Egypt and so of course I love Elizabeth Peters novels. I really feel like I am getting a glimpse of the magic age of archaeology that existed in Egypt at that time. The characters are interesting and the stories fascinating (to me).

Elizabeth Peters has given us another wonderful story about our favorite characters, the Peabody's and Friends. Folks, I own the complete set of this series, and I'm hooked. As a reader, it's really the characters I love and care about. The story, as always is light, but fully paced as we really do want to know what happens next, and who was that, and how did that happen, and...and...but always with a light, delicate touch, that gives the reader pleasure, and not pain. Although the Peabody series is labeled "Mystery", I would reccommend this series to anyone who enjoys a "delightful" read.
