9780060759483: The Serpent on the Crown

A New York Times Bestselling Author

Fall, 1921. With the world at peace, the Emersons are enjoying a busy period of excavation in Egypt. But their digging soon turns to detecting when they hear a lurid tale of a man's mysterious death. The widow is convinced her dead husband was the victim of a curse, and implores the Emersons to return the small "deadly" statue that killed him to the tomb from which it was stolen - before it claims another victim.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Peters earned her Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago's famed Oriental Institute. She was named Grand Master at the inaugural Anthony Awards in 1986 and Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America in 1998. In 2003, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Malice Domestic Convention. She lives in a historic farmhouse in western Maryland.

From AudioFile:

Listening to Barbara Rosenblat is always a treat, but when she's performing an Amelia Peabody mystery (Elizabeth Peters's engrossing tales of the Egyptologist and her singularly brilliant brood), the treat becomes a feast. The Peabody-Emersons are in Egypt for the excavation season, and they're soon up to their Victorian manners and mores in murder. With an alleged curse upon a precious gold statue, an ersatz exorcism, and some very villainous villains, archaeological exploration has rarely been more entertaining. Elizabeth Peters's writing sparkles, and thanks to Barbara Rosenblat's bravura performance, every character is identifiable, every nuance is appropriate, and every subtlety speaks volumes. From Peabody's first pronouncement to Emerson's last "Harumph," Rosenblat reaffirms her position as one of the industry's shining stars. S.J.H.
