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 Alberto, 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. They disembark at an archaeological site run by the Emerson brothers - the irascible, but dashing, Radcliffe and the amiable Walter. Soon their little party is increased by one - one mummy, that is, and a singularly lively example of the species. Strange visitations, suspicious accidents, and a botched kidnapping convince Amelia that there is a plot afoot to harm Evelyn.

    " Some of this book was a 3 stars for me, and some was 5, so I went for the middle ground. It started a little slow, I thought. And the main character loves archeology, so some of those parts got skimmed. At first I wasn't sure about the main character's personality, but by the middle I was so amused by her. And the mystery was very intriguing. One funny thing was that I was reading a very old copy so the dust in the pages irritated my allergies, but I kept on reading! I would read this author again, but I may go digital from here on out. "

    " I loved this book. I have read all of Elizabeth Peters books but the ones about Amelia Peabody are my favorites even though I also like her books written under other names. "
