About the Book

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Amelia has really pitched a tent in our hearts.” —Philadelphia Inquirer

“Amelia Peabody, the bossy archaeologist in Elizabeth Peters’s romantic adventures set in Egypt at the end of the last century, makes a perfect companion for a cruise up the Nile.” —New York Times

“Amelia is rather like Indiana Jones, Sherlock Holmes and Miss Marple all rolled into one.” —Washington Post Book World

“Peters’s wily cast of characters keeps the reader coming back for more.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Grand adventure.” —Toronto Sun

“[A] jewel of a series.” —New York Times Book Review

“Deeply satisfying. . . . The joy of the Amelia books has always been their elegant sense of humor . . . Peters manages to satirize romantic thrillers while producing some of the finest in the genre.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Once again, MWA Grandmaster Peters uses vivid settings, sharp characterizations, and deft dialogue to transport the reader to another time and place.” —Publishers Weekly

“No one is better at juggling torches while dancing on a high wire than Elizabeth Peters.” —Chicago Tribune

“...between Amelia Peabody and Indiana Jones, it’s Amelia--in wit and daring--by a landslide.” —The New York Times Book Review
