9780061246241: The Laughter of Dead Kings (Vicky Bliss Mysteries)

The heist of the century has taken place in Egypt's Valley of the Kings, and Vicki's on/off boyfriend, Sir John Smythe, is a prime suspect. Despite his insistence that he is no longer in the business of stealing antiquities and art objects, even Vicky isn't one hundred percent certain he has not fallen back into his old habits. Pursued by Interpol, the Egyptian police, rival gangs of illicit antiquities thieves, and (worse of all) Vicky's inquisitive boss, Anton Z. Schmidt, she and John set out on a wild chase across Europe and Egypt in an attempt to clear him by finding the real culprits and retrieving the stolen object.

Review:

Praise for Elizabeth Peters:

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

( Washington Post)

I really do think Elizabeth Peters' books are great entertainment. ( Angela Rippon)

Sheer delight, witty, full of seat-of-the-pants comic action... Add dastardly villains and infectious fun and you have the perfect recipe for splendid entertainment! ( Maxim Jakubowski, Guardian)

The well woven plot and exotic atmosphere couldn't be much better - it will delight her fans. ( Library Journal)

You are sure to love it. ( MyShelf.com)
