Aboard a boat traveling up the Nile, their delightful
(but catastrophically precocious) son, Ramses, back in England, Amelia Peabody
and her handsome husband, Emerson, just might have a second honeymoon while
they search for Nefertiti’s tomb. On the other hand, they might be heading
toward murder. Or worse.
A beautifully exotic slave woman, an enigmatic
Siamese cat, and a den of conspirators unite to snatch away Amelia’s happiness
unless she reveals a secret she cannot ethically, morally, or in any other way
disclose. So now, as the Emerson-Peabodys arrive at the remote desert site of
Amarna, they will confront danger behind the sand dunes, a nefarious kidnapping
plot, and a villain in disguise among their retinue.
Amelia is tantalizingly close to the most fabulous
discovery since King Tut’s tomb, but as hard as she digs, what she uncovers is
a shocking present-day peril: the loss of treasures far more precious than any
antiquity, her husband’s love. Or both their lives. Download and start listening now!
