The year is 1903. The place is Cairo. And preparing to tackle an archaeological dig in the Valley of the Kings, the intrepid Amelia Peabody dreams of a large cat, an Egyptian sign of good luck. In fact, an ominous message warning “Stay away from tomb Twenty-A” only intrigues her.

But Amelia soon acquires a fearful headache when her teenage son Ramses and her beautiful ward Nefret sneak about to help a pretty American who thinks she’s being stalked. And when tomb Twenty-A yields a mummy wearing silk undies, Amelia finds herself in a labyrinth of macabre murder, passion, and cruel deceit. Now she needs the cat’s good luck and more: feline stealth, a nose for something rotten, and nine lives. Or her next dig may be her own grave.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Peters’ fans will relish this latest adventure that explores mysteries of the heart as well as murder.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The eccentricities of the Emerson family are lavishly and deliciously presented by narrator Barbara Rosenblat…She delights listeners with the portraits while never allowing them to impede the suspense so carefully woven through the story.…Her performance is a pharaoh’s treasure.”


  • “As usual, Peters’ zesty characters…are marvelous, and there’s plenty of lively repartee to push the story along. The comedy is great, as well, with Peters knowing precisely how to balance starchy Amelia’s officious social respectability with her penchant for meddling in other people’s affairs.”


  • “Essential reading from a pro.”

    Library Journal

  • “The incomparable Ms. Peters hits an all-time high with the ninth chapter in her exceptionally witty and exciting adventure series. The real joy in this book is the emergence of Ramses as a potential new action hero.”

    " Following Peabody and Emerson through another story, this time I find the children taking more of role. That just makes the story more interesting and the plots more complicated, though I must admit I did guess the ending on this one. "

    " Now we've begun the portion of this series I really love. All of these people are strong-minded, highly intelligent, and principled -- and this gets them into serious amounts of trouble with each other and the world at large. There are some wonderfully funny bits -- indeed, Ms. Peters' sense of humor just gets more dry and witty with each successive story. Recommended for everyone over the age of 12 (younger children might be confused by the vocabulary, which is very Edwardian). "

    " number nine in the Amelia Peabody Series. Mind candy for recovering archaeologists. "
