“Between Amelia Peabody and Indiana Jones, it’s Amelia—in wit and daring—by a landslide.”
New York Times Book Review

Intrepid archaeologist and superior sleuth Amelia Peabody returns in A River in the Sky. In this breathtaking new adventure, New York Times bestselling Grand Master Elizabeth Peters transports the indomitable Amelia and her family, the Emersons, from their usual milieu, early twentieth-century Egypt, to an exciting—and dangerous—new locale: Palestine! A tale full of atmosphere, intrigue, and thrills, A River in the Sky is further proof that “Peters has few rivals” (Houston Chronicle).

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Patricia | 2/19/2014

    " This is the newest in the series but takes place chronologically earlier than several recent entries. Peabody and Emerson are in fine form and I liked it but found it less satisfactory that if it was a chronological continuation. However, placing the Emersons in Jerusalem instead of Egypt was an interesting diversion. "

    " I was interested in the description of Port Said as that is the port from where I toured to Giza to enter one of the Pyramids last Thanksgiving! "

    " This book was as good this time as the last. Very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sharon | 2/1/2014

    " Elizabeth Peters was entertaining as usual with a mystery set, no in Egypt, but in Jerusalem. Emerson, Peabody, Ramses, David, Nefret, Daoud, Selim and other minor characters were there in the good guys corner. Opposite them in the bad guys corner were a motley crew of thieves, rascals, opportunists, philanderers, spies and the downright evil ones. Set on the eve of WWI, the novel explores some of the reasons behind the looming war, although it primarily focuses on the tensions between the various religious groups in Jerusalem and the concerns with appropriate archeological procedure which leads to death, kidnapping, and espionage. An entrancing story, quick read, fun as always to read of the divergent, but harmonious (for the most part) characters. "
