Peters shines, as usual

by eastcoastgal on Jul 15, 2007

When the mysterious death of a watchman in the British Museum is sensationalized by stories of a dire curse, the full force of Amelia Peabody's investigative abilities is brought to the fore. Hampered though she is by the necessity of caring not only for her own son, the ever-precocious Ramses, but also by the addition of her brother's young children, Amelia nevertheless wastes no time in launching her own investigation, and is soon drawn deep into London's Arab underworld, grappling with kidnappers, Egyptian priests, mysterious women and even her own husband! Peters handles her change in setting with admirable aplomb, creating a cast of intriguing new characters as well as reviving several favorites from stories past. The character of little Ramses is especially developed in this novel, and the conflict set up between he and his cousins makes for a convincing and compelling subplot to the principal mystery. Most enjoyable!
