9780061999376: Children of the Storm (Amelia Peabody Mysteries)

The fifteenth adventure for Amelia, Emerson and the whole Peabody-Emerson clan!

At last the Great War is over. Amelia, her distinguished Egyptologist husband Emerson and their extended family are preparing for another season of excavation in Egypt. To everyone's great joy their son Ramses and his wife Nefret have become parents. Amelia, enjoying her role of fond (yet firm) grandmother, hopes that for once, this will be a quiet year with Ramses no longer undertaking perilous missions for British intelligence and no old enemies on their trail. Amelia is sadly mistaken. Past dangers cast shadows across the seemingly peaceful present, and a new adversary - unlike any Amelia has ever encountered - will chart a course that puts her beloved family directly in the path of destruction.

Review:

I can't wait for the next Peabody story... I really do think [Elizabeth Peters'] books are great entertainment. (Angela Rippon)

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

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

Book Description HarperTorch, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 188 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Great War has ended at last. No longer must archaeologist Amelia Peabody and her husband, Emerson, the distinguished Egyptologist, fear for the life of their daring son, Ramses, now free from his dangerous wartime obligations to British Intelligence. But in the aftermath of conflict, evil still casts a cold shadow over violence-scarred Egypt. The theft of valuable antiquities from the home of a friend causes great concern in the Emerson household. Ramses s strange encounter with a woman costumed in the veil and gold crown of the goddess Hathor only deepens the mystery. And the brutal death of the suspected thief washes the unsettling affair in blood--setting Amelia on a terrifying collision course with an adversary more fiendish and formidable than any she has ever encountered.
