9780061999222: Deeds of the Disturber: An Amelia Peabody Novel of Suspense

Can fear kill? There are those who believe so but Amelia Peabody is skeptical. A respected Egyptologist and amateur sleuth, Amelia has foiled felonious schemes from Victoria's England to the Middle East. And she doubts that it was a Nineteenth-Dynasty mummy's curse that caused the death of a night watchman in the British Museum. The corpse was found sprawled in the mummy's shadow, a look of terror frozen on the guard's face. What or who killed the unfortunate man is a mystery that seems too intriguingly delicious for Amelia to pass up, especially now that she, her dashing archaeologist husband, Emerson, and their precocious son, Ramses, are back on Britain's shores. But a contemporary curse can be as lethal as one centuries old and the foggy London thoroughfares can be as treacherous as the narrow, twisting alleyways of Cairo after dark when a perpetrator of evil deeds sets his murderous sights on his relentless pursuer . . . Amelia Peabody!"

Product Description:

Swapping the stifling heat and dust of Egypt for the cooler climes of London, adventuress Amelia Peabody finds herself plunged into an escapade set in the dignified surroundings of the British Museum. A night watchman is found dead in the Mummy Room, a look of horror frozen on his face and the gutter press ask the question 'Can Fear Kill?' And before Amelia can respond with an appropriate answer, a pair of dissolute aristocrats with a shady past appear in her life together with supernatural curses, a lady of dubious reputation with a link to Emerson's bachelor days and a homicidal maniac disguised as an ancient Sem priest - but they are only the very tip of this most singular mystery.

Product Description:

The fifth book in the Amelia Peabody series. A night watchman is found dead in the Mummy Room of the British Museum, a look of horror frozen on his face. Before Amelia can respond, a pair of dissolute aristocrats with a shady past appear in her life, together with supernatural curses.
