Synopsis: [MP3-CD audiobook format in Vinyl case. *NOTE: The MP3-CD format requires a compatible audio CD player.]

[read by Susan O'Malley]

Amelia Peabody, that indomitable product of the Victorian age, embarks on her first Egyptian adventure armed with unshakable self-confidence, a journal to record her thoughts, and, of course, a sturdy umbrella. On her way, Amelia rescues young Evelyn Barton-Forbes, who has been ''ruined'' and abandoned on the streets of Rome by her rascally lover. With a typical disregard for convention, Amelia promptly hires her fellow countrywoman as a companion and takes her to Cairo.

Eluding Evelyn's former lover, who wants her back, and Evelyn's cousin Lord Ellesmere, who wishes to marry her, the two women sail up the Nile to an archaeological site that is home to a rather lively mummy. Soon strange visitations, suspicious accidents, and a botched kidnapping convince Amelia that there is a plot afoot to harm Evelyn.

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.

Book Description Dodd Mead, New York, New York, U.S.A., 1975. 1/4 Cloth. Book Condition: Fair+. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Believed 1st. edition, not stated. Condition is fair+ primarily because of a pronounced spine slant, therefore binding is somewhat loose feeling. Red boards, yellow cloth spine with metallic red titles. Ex-library with the usual markings, card pocket on the rear free endpaper, shelfworn edges. Pages clean and bright except for small light edge stain toward rear of book. Unusually, the title page is missprinted with the word "Crocodile" missing from the title on this page. Pictorial dust jacket is good+ in a protective mylar cover taped to boards. Small tears and chips at spine ends. First Amelia Peabody novel by Elizabeth Peters beginning her acclaimed series of novels based in Egypt during Victorian times. Ex-Library.
