9780060853525: Tomb of the Golden Bird (Amelia Peabody Series)

In New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Peters's most eagerly anticipated Amelia Peabody adventure to date, the incomparable Emerson clan is a hairbreadth away from unearthing the legendary site they've been searching for: the tomb of the little-known king Tutankhamon. But a sinister plot and a dark family secret stand in the way of their ultimate ambition and threaten to change things forever. . . .

She was named Grand Master at the inaugural Anthony Awards in 1986 and Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America in 1998. In 2003, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Malice Domestic Convention. She lives in a historic farmhouse in western Maryland.

From AudioFile:

The Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Rosenblat audio enterprise seems to gain panache with each outing, since Amanda Peabody and her extended family of Egyptologists are tailor-made to display Rosenblat's talent for drama and dazzling gift for accents. In this installment, an aural bazaar of characters is in play as a somewhat peevish Howard Carter makes the find of the century, the unplundered tomb of King Tutankhamen, while the Emerson-Peabody clan watches in envy from the sidelines. Emerson's black-sheep brother, Sethos, turns up with malaria and a stolen coded document; his estranged wife, Margaret, follows, but Amanda kidnaps her. Half the characters are plotting to rob Tut's tomb, the other half to overthrow the government; chaos reigns, but Rosenblat is droll, sly, witty, and in complete control. B.G.
