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...

The mystery is fairly thin

The mystery is fairly thin. The story starts off slow and centers mainly on the Emersons' scholarly pursuits with the mystery of the statue relegated to the background. The story picks up about halfway through when a fresh dead body turns up in the most unlikely place. Peters is definitely setting up for the next book here (Tutankhamen!) and it’s easy to see she was thinking about how to end the series even if she never did so.

Listening to Barbara Rosenblat is always a treat, but when she's performing an Amelia Peabody mystery (Elizabeth Peters's engrossing tales of the Egyptologist and her singularly brilliant brood), the treat becomes a feast.

Rit
I just found this series a few months ago... I fell in love with all the characters. Of course, my heroine is Peabody! I then found out that I am nearing the end of the series. I actually put this book aside because I know I will have to say goodbye soon. What an amazing series--I highly recommend it!
Sharpbinder
As usual the book is written with Victorian-ish vocabulary and I'm grateful to be reading on my iPad so that I can touch a word and have a dictionary ready to explain. Wonderful, delightful, page turner.

This series DOES go in order & progresses through the life & adventures of Peabody & Emerson. Do start with Crocodile on the Sandbanks and work your way through the series in the correct order. I expect each book is stand-alone excellent, but it's more fun to read through in order. The series is about a wealthy Victorian lady who decides to travel. She ends up in Egypt & meets an Egyptologist & falls in love & marries him. The rest is one adventure after another. You will learn some Egyptology along the way as well. Great series. Check [...] to get the series in order & learn more. It will make you want to go to Egypt !

It's 1922. Another season of adventure, discovery and crime- solving for the Emerson family, including Sethos, and their friends. And in this one, Amelia finally hits a target she's shooting at!
Manona
Amelia is hilarious. I like her detective work but I have come to identify with her and her family. I just hate that we are all getting old and the kids are leaving. Also that the books will be ending soon.

I'm rereading this series again and I feel like I know these characters so well. I laugh at the antics of some and can't wait to know where they will dig next year. Emerson's the train but Peabody is the engine which means nothing is accomplished without her guidance.
Amelia is her usual delightful self and Nefrit and Ramses only add to the delight.
