The irascible husband of Victorian Egyptologist Amelia Peabody demonstrates again why he has been nicknamed "father of curses." Denied permission to dig at the pyramids of Dahshoor, Emerson is awarded instead the "pyramids" of Mazghunah-countless mounds of rubble in the midst of nowhere. Nothing in this barren spot seems worthy of interest-until someone gets killed. The dead man is an antiquities dealer murdered in his Cairo shop. When a sinister Egyptian spotted at the crime scene turns up in Mazghunah, Amelia can't resist following his trail. There's a mysterious scrap of papyrus and a missing mummy case to investigate while she keeps at least one eye on their precocious son Ramses and his Egyptian cat.… (mer)

Just gets better and better. I'm not sure if precocious is the word for Ramses but he's certainly something. ( )
  OutOfTheBestBooks | Sep 24, 2021 |
This third book in the Amelia Peabody series see Ramses' first visit to Egypt. This precocious young child keeps everyone on their toes but Amelia is more than up to the task. Between stealing a lion cub, translating a papyrus scrap, and discovering a cache of ancient jewels, Ramses keeps his mother busy.

Otherwise, the site that Emerson and Peabody have been awarded for digging this season is a disappointment. All that remains of the pyramids Amelia longs for are heaps of rubble and Coptic cemeteries. Nothing of interest to a woman who longs to crawl through bat infested tunnels filled with bad air. But a mummy case that keeps appearing and disappearing and a few murders do provide Amelia with a mystery to solve.

This is Amelia's first encounter with the villain she names the Master Criminal but there are lesser villains causing trouble too. Amelia is her usual oblivious and intrepid self as she bulldozes her way through the mystery. It was a fun story told from Amelia's unique viewpoint. ( )

I love Amelia Peabody, the heroine of these books. She's so self-assured and self-delusional.

I have one complaint about this recording: every now and then, there would be a different voice doing the reading -- maybe a sentence or so -- and then it would go back to the regular narrator. All I can figure is that there were mistakes that had to be addressed, and either they got a different woman to read, or they got the woman who did the main narration, but she read differently. Either way, it was a tad distracting, like a ghost sneaking into the story. ( )

Synopsis: Denied permission to dig at the pyramids of Dahshoor, Emerson and Amelia are resigned to excavating mounds of rubble in the middle of nowhere. And there is nothing in this barren area worthy of their interest -- however, an antiquities dealer in Cairo is murdered in his own shop. A second sighting of a sinister stranger from the crime scene, a mysterious scrap of papyrus, and a missing mummy case have all whetted Amelia's curiosity. But when the Emersons start digging for answers in an ancient tomb, events take a darker and deadlier turn -- and there may be no surviving the very modern terrors their efforts reveal. Ramses accompanies his parents and begins his own dig, as well as bussies himself rescuing lion cubs and finally his parents.
Review: Again, Ramses is completely entertaining, although a bit over the top regarding the intelligence of a 5 year old. The 'Master Criminal' is introduced. The entire story is compelling. ( )

It's been a stressful six weeks, and I really needed a tried and true book to help bring those stress levels down. I was delighted to find that my local library had a few Amelia Peabody audiobooks in their collection, so I promptly downloaded one.

I read all of these books years ago, and Amelia remains one of my favorite characters of all time. She is wonderfully unreliable at times. If I could pick a fictional character with whom to sit down and have tea--well, Amelia would definitely be in the running.

I love historical mysteries of all sorts, and Egypt in 1895 makes a perfect setting. This is the first book in which Amelia's son Ramses appears, as well, and Ramses is a remarkable character in his own right. So is Radcliffe Emerson, Amelia's archeologist husband. And the mystery is typically complex, fun and funny, but also serious by turns. So glad to have revisited this one! I'm sure I'll end up re-reading more in the series now that this one stood up so well. ( )
