Synopsis:
Thirty-one-year-old Victorian gentlewoman Amelia Peabody has not only inherited her father's fortune, but she is also blessed with his strong will as well. Now she's headed for Cairo, accompanied by a girl with a tarnished past, to indulge her passion for Egyptology. Little did she know that murder and a homicidal mummy lay in wait for her.

Review:
Elizabeth Peters's unforgettable heroine Amelia Peabody makes her first appearance in this clever mystery. Amelia receives a rather large inheritance and decides to use it for travel. On her way through Rome to Egypt, she meets Evelyn Barton-Forbes, a young woman abandoned by her lover and left with no means of support. Amelia promptly takes Evelyn under her wing, insisting that the young lady accompany her to Egypt, where Amelia plans to indulge her passion for Egyptology. When Evelyn becomes the target of an aborted kidnapping and the focus of a series of suspicious accidents and mysterious visitations, Amelia becomes convinced of a plot to harm her young friend. Like any self-respecting sleuth, Amelia sets out to discover who is behind it all.

Review

Review:
This first journal of the fabulous Amelia Peabody describing her adventures in Victorian Egypt introduces the incredibly popular series. Susan O'Malley isn't Barbara Rosenblat, narrator of the series for Recorded Books--but get over it. The harumphing may not be so forceful from Radcliffe Emerson in this O'Malley reading, but the indomitable Amelia Peabody carries the listener along as easily as she carries her umbrella. Visitations of moaning mummies and other horrific occurrences befall the lovely Evelyn, the dashing Emerson brothers, and Miss Peabody herself, as they excavate together for the first time.
