“Irresistible….Amelia is still a joy.”
 —New York Times Book Review

 

The intrepid archeologist Amelia Peabody and her fearless family, the Emersons, are back in Egypt, and something very nasty is afoot in Lord of the SilentNew York Times bestselling Grandmaster Elizabeth Peters’s sparkling adventure with more riddles than the Sphinx and more close calls and stunning escapes than  an Indiana Jones movie. Reviewers are simply agog over Lord of the Silent, calling it, “Wonderfully entertaining” (Washington Times), “Deeply satisfying”  (Entertainment Weekly), and in the words of the Toronto Globe and Mail, “The hype is true. This is Peters’s best book.”

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 3/31/2011

    " densely packed action, satisfying, not a book to rush through, obviously "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marita | 12/11/2010

    " Costing with the others in the Series. Nothing much new or exciting in this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 BJ | 11/15/2010

    " This was a weak 4* for me, but how can you not enjoy Amelia's arrogant self-assurance and acerbic wit?! I think I could learn to enjoy being growled at by Emerson even when he's not in one of his amorous moods! And I'm glad to see that the roles of Ramses & Nefret continue to grow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 10/5/2010

    " Fun read--and no bad language! "

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

    " Good. But not as really wonderful as the two preceding. There are a lot of surprises that I shall not reveal here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nacha | 8/17/2010

    " lots of Ramses, hidden treasures, vicious villains and constant twists in the plot! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaye | 7/26/2010

    " Not my favorite book, but I still love the series. This one has Nefret an Ramses adjusting to married life. The Emerson's return to Egypt and of course a body shows up. Some far fetched twists and turns but I do like how the family sticks together and embrace their own eccentricities. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaitlyn | 7/20/2010

    " for the second time around "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthiaj | 6/19/2010

    " Another well researched mystery with Amelia and family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grace | 4/6/2010

    " Amelia Peabody is such a good role model for negligent moms everywhere who let their kids go free range. And I mean that in the best possible way. But the tricky plot twists in this one did stretch credulity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lissa | 3/31/2010

    " I love these characters and don't want to read anything else until I finish all the books available "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 2/17/2010

    " Wonderful series about Egyptology! Fun, strong female characters during early 1900's. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 1/3/2010

    " Another fun mystery solved by Amelia. "

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

    " Two master criminals--can this book contain any more? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 12/9/2009

    " I predicted everything that happened in this book before it was published. Really not a good sign for a mystery. "
