9780061246272: A River in the Sky: An Amelia Peabody Novel of Suspense

1910. Having brought Egypt firmly under her thumb, Amelia Peabody turns her attention to a harder challenge: Palestine, a province of the crumbling, corrupt Ottoman Empire and the Holy Land of three religions. Hearing that Morley, an English adventurer, has raised money to mount an expedition to search for the vanished treasures of the Temple in Jerusalem, Emerson and Amelia are persuaded to go after him in order to prevent a catastrophically inept excavation and the possibility of armed protest by the infuriated members of all three religions who view the Dome of the Rock as sacred. The War Office is concerned about increasing German influence in Palestine and insists that Morley is secretly working for German intelligence. Emerson doesn’t believe it, but could he be mistaken? In the meantime, their son Ramses has been working on a dig at Samaria, north of Jerusalem, where he encounters an unusual party of travellers. One is a female German archaeologist, and the other a mysterious man of unknown nationality and unknown past. Ramses’s insatiable curiosity leads him to a startling discovery about the pair. He must now pass the information on to his parents in Jerusalem – but only if he can get there alive…

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

As full of riches as King Tut's tomb. ( Denver Post)

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

A writer so popular that the public library has to keep her books under lock and key. ( Washington Post Book World)

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Paperback / softback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, A River in the Sky: An Amelia Peabody Novel of Suspense, Elizabeth Peters, August 1910. Banned from the Valley of the Kings, Amelia Peabody and husband Emerson are persuaded to follow would-be archaeologist Major George Morley on an expedition to Palestine. Somewhere in this province of the corrupt, crumbling Ottoman Empire--the Holy Land of three religions--Morley is determined to unearth the legendary Ark of the Covenant.At the request of British Intelligence, Emerson will be keeping an eye on the seemingly inept Morley, believed to be an agent of the Kaiser sent to stir up trouble in this politically volatile land. Amelia hopes to prevent a catastrophically unprofessional excavation from destroying priceless historical finds and sparking an armed protest by infuriated Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Meanwhile, Amelia's headstrong son, Ramses, working on a dig at Samaria, encounters an unusual party of travelers and makes a startling discovery--information that he must pass along to his parents in Jerusalem . . . if he can get there alive.
