Amelia and family have arrived in Egypt for the 1911 archeological season, after the marriage of young Ramses’ best friend David to Amelia’s niece Lia. But trouble finds them immediately when David is accused of selling ancient artifacts.

While Amelia and company try to clear his name and expose the real culprit, the body of an American is found at the bottom of their excavation shaft. As accusations of drug dealing and moral misconduct fly, a child of mysterious antecedents sparks a crisis that threatens to tear the family apart. Amelia brings her brilliant powers of deduction to bear, but someone is shooting at her and coming awfully close!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Peters’ story is—as always—modern, believable, and exciting.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Barbara Rosenblat is Emerson, Peabody, Nefret and Ramses, and they are each so distinct that the listener may believe in multiple personalities.”

    AudioFile

  • “Well-realized time and place [and] interesting, lively characters.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Details of the dig hold attention as always, but it’s the way Peters mines the previous books for personal history that makes this adventure such a standout. Especially intriguing is the way Peabody’s treacherous nephew Percy is brought to the forefront. The ramifications of his actions set up what will surely be the next book, which readers will await with justifiable anticipation.”

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ainsley | 2/19/2014

    " I love the Peabody books, and I'm a sucker for the sequence featuring the grown-up Ramses in unrequited love...so there's no way I could give it less than five stars. *sigh* "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ahmed Koriem | 2/15/2014

    " Elizabeth Peters in The Falcon at the Portal, have a good start with satisfactory amount of action and movement, she also had done her homework for regaining the atmosphere of Egypt from a century as seen in the eyes of non Egyptians, but in total the story is page turner. I only seen that although she is making a mystery based on the archeology of old Egyptian history, she doesn't speak on the real history of those dynasties and pharos she deals with them. I know the author is the master of his work, but, some people know little about the truth of those great kings. "

    " I am torn in reviewing this book. I liked the history of what was going on in Egypt as World War was about to break out. But the main mystery wasn't engaging. The biggest reason to read this story was the build up of Nefret and Ramses. Their, will they/won't they relationship takes such an annoying turn I might have taken away a star except that the ending made me instantly start the next novel. "

    " The thing I like best about Elizabeth Peters' books is when the twists in the plot come along, they are completely believable. And, if you are paying attention, you will surely come to the same conclusions as the characters and solve the mystery along with them. "
