product page


Fiction, Mystery

Amelia Peabody Emerson and her husband receive a plea from the recently widowed Lady Baskerville to complete the tomb excavation her husband was working on when he perished. Unfortunately, it seems as though there is something to the curse that is dogging the expedition - or at least, someone is trying to make something of it. If Amelia and Emerson can't figure out the motivations, there is every chance that they will be next.

More Egyptology in this novel, as well as some delicately overwrought prose by Peabody, who has taken to marriage in a big way.
