Description

Once again, the New York Times bestselling author of the Amelia Peabody novels “kicks up a desert storm.”—People

The “grande dame of historical mystery” (Washington Post) is back with a thrilling new tale featuring America's favorite archaeologist turned sleuth.

At last the Great War is over. Amelia Peabody, her distinguished Egyptologist husband Emerson, and their extended family are preparing for another season of excavation in Egypt. To everyone's great joy, their son, Ramses, and his wife, Nefret, have become parents. Amelia, enjoying the role of fond (yet firm) grandmother, hopes that for once this will be a quiet year with Ramses no longer undertaking perilous missions for British intelligence and no old enemies on their trail.

Yet the hazards of the past will be overshadowed by new danger and a new adversary—unlike anything Amelia's ever encountered—who will pursue her in a battle that puts innocent young lives at stake.
