Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Undeterred by world war and enemy submarines, Amelia Peabody — Grandmaster Elizabeth Peter's indomitable archaeologist-sleuth — once again sets sail for Egypt, where ghosts of an ancient past and spectors of a present-day evil hover silently over an inscrutable land.

With son Ramses, his wife, Nefret, and a few unwelcome additions in tow, the elder Peabody-Emersons embark on a dangerous sea voyage to Alexandria, ultimately ending up in Cairo for their annual excavations.  But in this autumn of 1915 the exotic, alluring city is not what it used to be.  Cairo has been transformed into an armed camp teeming with the enemy agents, and shockingly bold tomb robbers are brazenly desecratingg the ancient sites.

Yet there is an even darker danger in store for the Emersons.  Can it be that one of Amelia's oldest and most dangerous adversaries will intervene to alter the family's destiny? Tantalizing clues suggest that this may be so and point toward an archaeological discovery of unparalleled importance — and the resurrection of a voice that has been silent for millenia.

Synopsis:

“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 Silent—New York Times bestselling Grandmaster Elizabeth Peterss 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 Peterss best book.”

Synopsis:

Elizabeth Peters follows her smash New York Times bestseller He Shall Thunder in the Sky with a superb new tale filled with danger, intrigue, and sparkling wit. Dateline: Cairo and Environs, 1915. Risking life, limb, and her second-best hat, the intrepid Egyptologist Amelia Peabody and her irascible, handsome archaeologist husband defy German submarines and warring Senussi to embark on another season of exploration and crime-solving. When a fresh-- but not fresh enough-- body turns up in the tomb they are excavating, Amelia vows to protect her family and find the killer no matter what the cost. Filled with surprises, including the return of a long-lost but certainly not forgotten enemy, here is deliciously dangerous entertainment starring fiction' s best loved and most indomitable sleuth.
