The 1895-96 season promises to be an exceptional one for Amelia Peabody, her dashing Egyptologist husband, Radcliffe Emerson, and their precocious (some might say rambunctious) eight-year-old son, Ramses. The long-denied permission to dig at the pyramids of Dahshoor has finally been granted, and the...

I really liked this story for one because it was set in Egypt and the exotic locale always makes the plot line just that much better to me. I really enjoyed the twist at the end involving the "Master Criminal." Peters makes all of her characters really likeable and I even like the Master Criminal no...

In this fourth entry in the Amelia Peabody series, the Emersons (with Ramses and Bastet, of course) return to Egypt, and this time they get to excavate at the pyramids of Dashoor. Amelia is in raptures, with a chance to have a pyramid of her very own to explore. But when an adversary is discovered m...

It is always interesting to return to a book I once loved. Sometimes the books are better than I remembered—as the same author's Curse of the Pharaohs proved to be. Sometimes they don't seem as good.

Amelia, her husband and son are back in Egypt for a dig. t...

Returning to Egypt to excavate the pyramids at Dahshoor, Amelia Peabody, Radcliffe Emerson, and their 8-year-old son Walter Peabody Emerson, a.k.a. Ramses the walking/talking encyclopedia. Right now Ramses is my favorite character. He is just so infuriatingly clever, logical and verbose. He can tal...

A mix bag for this one. On one hand I liked the archaeological sides. I liked Ramses then again, I always like Ramses. I can still see Emerson as a earlier reincarnation of Daniel Jackson. I still like Amelia. The setting was familiar since Lion in the Valley is an almost sequel to The Mummy Case. S...

I think I enjoyed this one a little more than the others because, surprisingly, the addition of a precocious child to the mix actually made the story more amusing.
