9780061951664: Lord of the Silent (Amelia Peabody Mysteries)

Dateline: Cairo and environs, 1915. Risking life, limb and her second-best hat, the intrepid Egyptologist Amelia Peabody and her irascible, handsome archaeologist husband Emerson embark on another season of exploration and crime solving. When a dead body tums up in the tomb they are excavating, Amelia vows to protect her family and find the killer no matter what the cost. Filled with surprises, including the return of a long-lost but certainly not forgotten enemy, here is delicious entertainment starring fiction's best loved and most indomitable lady sleuth.

Review:

"* 'I can't wait for the next Elizabeth Peters' - Angela Rippon * 'A writer so popular that the public library has to keep her books under lock and key' - Washington Post Book World * 'Between Amelia Peabody and Indiana Jones it's Amelia - in wit and daring - by a landslide' - New York Times Book Review

Book Description:

Undeterred by world war and enemy submarines, Amelia and Emerson set sail once again for Egypt, where ghosts of an ancient past and spectres of a present-day evil hover silently over an inscrutable land.
