The Great War has ended at last. Archaeologist Amelia Peabody and her husband, Emerson, the distinguished Egyptologist, no longer fear for the life of their daring son, Ramses, now free from his dangerous wartime obligations to British Intelligence. Delightful new additions to the growing Emerson family and new wonders waiting to be discovered beneath the shifting Egyptian sands mark a time of new beginnings in Luxor.

However, the theft of valuable antiquities from the home of a friend, including a magnificent gold bracelet adorned with the image of the goddess Hathor, causes great concern. Ramses's encounter with a woman costumed in the veil and gold crown of Hathor herself only deepens the mystery.

With those in her circle suddenly plagued by a series of accidents, Amelia attempts to connect these troubling threads into a pattern. But her investigation is setting her on a collision course with an adversary more formidable than any she has ever encountered.

    " I had to take a break from this one for a while, but when I came back, I was so glad to be with Amelia

    " A nice visit with old friends. I love this series. Amelia Peabody is such a great character. This time around the cavalcade of characters and their subplots was a bit overwhelming. But still a bit of fun for my roundtrip flight to Vegas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deanna | 1/15/2011

    " Everyone is in this one!! Absolutely everyone!! Many plot lines finally tied together -- great suspense, true danger, loyalty, betrayal, romance -- very little archaeology. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosemary | 10/26/2010

    " Another fantastic adventure of the Emerson clan performed for audiobook by the incomparable Barbara Rosenblat. I just can't get enough! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 10/18/2010

    " As always with this series, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The mystery was mysterious and kept me guessing till the end. Sethos' daughter turns up again. Is she a villain or has she changed her ways? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea | 10/10/2010

    " Once again, I dip into a series at a stage where nothing really makes sense if you don't have the backstory. I think I might like the beginning of this series, but I think I need to read something else for a while before tackling it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jean | 9/13/2010

    " This was given to me by Jack, Rich's friend. I read it but don't think I'll do more of this series. It takes place in Egypt which was interesting, but her style is too slow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William Alan | 8/20/2010

    " Pretty darn good. Everyone is getting settled in. It's a little like the calm right before the denouement. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthiaj | 8/11/2010

    " Another reasonable installment in the Amelia Peabody series. I thought the "bad guys" were a little more obvious in this story compared to some of her others. But by the 15th book in a series.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stella | 6/24/2010

    " I like the meaning behind the term, "Children of the storm". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 4/27/2010

    " I've been trying for ages to remember which book had the dahabeya "chase" in it! Hooray! def. one of the BEST! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sally | 4/23/2010

    " Elizabeth Peters does a great job of keeping Amelia Peabody and her family from getting stale. She manages to find strange people and suspense for the family while letting them age. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 12/24/2009

    " Favorite quote: Sethos let out a faint groan. "I had better get--er--good old Badger back to the house," I said, giving him a hard look. "
