Mystery Historical | Mystery Woman Sleuth
Can fear kill? There are those who believe soâ€”but Amelia
Peabody is skeptical. A respected Egyptologist and amateur
sleuth, Amelia has foiled felonious schemes from
Victoria's England to the Middle East. And she doubts that
it was a Nineteenth-Dynasty mummy's curse that caused the
death of a night watchman in the British Museum. The
corpse was found sprawled in the mummy's shadow, a look of
terror frozen on the guard's face.
Whatâ€”or whoâ€”killed the
unfortunate man is a mystery that seems too intriguingly
delicious for Amelia to pass up, especially now that she,
her dashing archaeologist husband, Emerson, and their
precocious son, Ramses, are back on Britain's shores. But
a contemporary curse can be as lethal as one centuries oldâ€”
and the foggy London thoroughfares can be as treacherous
as the narrow, twisting alleyways of Cairo after darkâ€”when
a perpetrator of evil deeds sets his murderous sights on
his relentless pursuer...Amelia Peabody!
