In this first adventure, our headstrong heroine decides to use her substantial inheritance to see the world. On her travels, she rescues a gentlewoman in distress - Evelyn Barton-Forbes - and the two become friends. The two companions continue to Egypt where they face mysteries, mummies and the redoubtable Radcliffe Emerson, an outspoken archaeologist, who doesn't need women to help him solve mysteries - at least that's what he thinks.Hide synopsis

I found an Elizabeth Peters book in 1997. After reading I went back to book one and read every one in sequence. When I caught up I waited expectantly each year for the next one. I felt as if I was part of the family watching each member grow up and mature. Every time I recommend these books to someone, they have the same reaction. When there are no more books on the Emerson family, I will feel as if I lost contact with my family. You must read each book in sequence. I have traveled to Egypt and the history is absolutely accurate. I wish I had read these books before visiting Egypt in 1985 and then I would have had a greater understanding of the monuments and people. Elizabeth Peters is the romantic and historical equivalent of Clive Cussler.
This book has been a great favorite of mine. It finally occurred to me to buy the book instead of depending on the local library to obtain it from one of their many branches. The seller provided a great copy of the book at a most reasonable price and the service was outstanding. Would definitely deal with this seller again.
