Elizabeth Peters was born and brought up in Illinois and earned her Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago's famed Oriental Institute.

Review:

Elizabeth Peters' Mummy Case excels with Susan O'Malley's smooth narrative style, bringing alive...Amelia Peabody's probe of a Cairo antiques dealer's murder. --Publishers Weekly

Between Amelia Peabody and Indiana Jones, it's Amelia--in wit and daring--a landslide. --New York Times Book Review

[Elizabeth Peters] scores again with a riotously witty, tense, and cunningly constructed tale. --Publishers Weekly
