|Lion in the Valley|
Date: 1986 — $6.75 — Book
The Master Criminal is back, or so Amelia Peabody believes. Maybe it's the fact that Ramses was almost abducted from a pyramid in Cairo. Maybe it's the fact that a man was murdered in his bed, while the well-bred lady that was his companion has disappeared. Or maybe it's the fact that a number of incidents are beginning to add up, and everything is pointing to one source - Amelia herself.
For some reason this series wears me out. The three stars I give this novel is more a reflection of my flagging interest than of any innate quality.
