"Between Amelia Peabody and Indiana Jones, it's Amelia--in wit and daring--by a landslide."

-- New York Times Book Review

New York Times bestselling Grandmaster Elizabeth Peters transports us to the Land of the Pharoahs--and leaves us in the most capable hands of intrepid archeologist and adventurer Amelia Peabody--in The Falcon at the Portal . A suspenseful and always surprising romp through 1911 Egypt with Amelia and her equally indomitable family, the Emersons, The Falcon at the Portal immerses us in a fascinating world of antiquity and majesty, and plunges us into a mystery as perilous as it is puzzling. As the Cleveland Plain Dealer suggests, let us all "raise a toast to the incomparable Amelia Peabody."
