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.

From AudioFile:

Before the Peabody-Emersons can begin the season's archaeological dig, a flamboyant woman asks Emerson to remove an alleged curse from a rare gold statuette. The close-knit family faces danger and shocking surprises in Elizabeth Peters's seventeenth Amelia Peabody mystery. Harper Audio's author-approved abridgment scrupulously strives to include major characters and plot points. The CD version also provides helpful tracking information on each disc, and, no music to distract from the performance. The truly exceptional Barbara Rosenblat avoids abridgment confusion with her masterful portrayals. Her wit, intelligence, and subtle shadings establish age, class, and motive beyond any doubt. If they ever make a movie of the series, Rosenblat is the perfect choice for all the roles. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
