Description

An Egyptologist investigates a death at the British Museum in this "charming" historical mystery by the New York Times–bestselling author of The Painted Queen (The Denver Post). Back in London after an archaeological dig, adventurous sleuth Amelia Peabody—"rather like Indiana Jones, Sherlock Holmes and Miss Marple all rolled into one"—discovers that a night watchman at the museum has perished in the shadow of a mummy case (The Washington Post Book World). There are murmurings about an ancient curse, but a skeptical Amelia is determined to find an all-too-human killer. Soon, she's balancing family demands, including the troubles of her precocious son, Ramses (aka Walter), with not just one unsolved crime, but two . . . From a recipient of multiple honors including the Mystery Writers of America's Grand Master Award, this murder mystery set in Victorian-era England is a witty, rollicking, and "deeply satisfying" romp (Entertainment Weekly) in a "jewel of a series" (The New York Times Book Review).
