The Ape Who Guards the Balance begins in 1907 in
England where Amelia is attending a suffragettes’ rally outside the home of Mr.
Geoffrey Romer of the House of Commons. It seems Romer is one of the few
remaining private collectors of Egyptian antiquities, and a series of bizarre
events at the protest soon embroil Amelia in grave personal danger. Suspecting
that the Master Criminal, Sethos, is behind their problems, the Emersons hasten
to Egypt to continue their studies in the Valley of Kings where they soon
acquire a papyrus of the Book of the Dead.
As with past seasons, however, their archaeological
expedition is interrupted. The murdered body of a woman is found in the Nile.
Ramses, Radcliffe, and Amelia all have their theories as to the origin of the
crime, but their own lives might soon be at stake if the cult of Thoth and
their ancient book is, indeed, involved. Download and start listening now!
