Fiction, Mystery

These books are definitely skewing over towards the romance category. When Emerson is hit on the head, he loses his memory of the last decade or so, forgetting everything that has happened since his last excavation there - including Amelia Peabody. The doctor tells her to not shock him with the knowledge that he is married to her (and certainly not with the knowledge of Ramses!) and so she sets out to win his heart back all over again, with the assistance of their millionaire friend Cyrus Vandergelt. Along the way they have to deal with the instigators of the assault, who want to know all about their previous adventure to a lost civilization.

And they have to deal with someone reproducing an ancient Egyptian fable, the ending of which is unknown...
