        March 1, 2004
        Intrepid archeologists Amelia Peabody, husband Emerson and son Ramses have shared numerous exciting adventures, but the 16th volume in MWA Grand Master Peters's bestselling series will have particular appeal for fans. The author fills in a gap in the chronological record (1907–1908) and revisits the hidden city of the Lost Oasis, whose discovery was recounted in The Last Camel Died at Noon
        (1991). The doughty explorers, including foster daughter Nefret, who is from the Lost Oasis, heed the call of a messenger purportedly from that realm's ruler, Tarek. Peters, as her many accolades would suggest, knows precisely what she is doing as she spins a tale of romance, derring-do, bravery and, of course, deceptions, betrayals and disguises in the classic tradition of H. Rider Haggard, if with tongue often in cheek. Familiar enemies surface (bureaucrats, soldiers of fortunes, despoilers of antiquities, etc.) and dog the group as they travel by ship, boat and camel from their English home to the remote desert location that will test their mettle once again. Peters's knowledge of ancient Egypt and the excavations and desecrations that accompanied early archeological attempts in the region allow her to dress her melodrama with authentic trappings that add greatly to the enjoyment. Agent, Dominick Abel. (One-day laydown Mar. 30)

        FYI:
        Peters received the Lifetime Achievement Award at Malice Domestic in 2003.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: The grammatically correct, deliciously verbose Peabody-Emersons are back. Recently unearthed journals of a previously unexamined period in the family's timetable (1907-1908) tell of their return to the Lost Oasis (first explored in THE LAST CAMEL DIED AT NOON). Kidnapping, murder, political intrigues, and damsels in distress make this sixteenth episode in the Peabody Chronicles every bit as exciting as the others. Barbara Rosenblat's fully realized performance invests Emerson with a bumbling authority and the 20-year-old Ramses with the pomposity of youth. Rosenblat shines as the ever-loquacious Amelia tosses off bons mots, manipulating everyone and everything in sight. Rosenblat's tongue-in-cheek delivery and incomparable timing allow seemingly throwaway lines to snap with crocodile ferocity. Those new to the series will become instant fans, and devotees will be delighted. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine

      • content: A recently discovered journal of Egyptologist Amelia Peabody explores the missing episode (1907--1908) in the chronicles of Peabody; her scholar husband, Emerson; their son, Ramses; and their ward and Ramses's future bride, Nefret, taking them back to the Lost Oasis to help their friend, King Tarek. In this, the sixteenth book in the Peabody-Emerson series, Grandmaster of the Mystery Writers of America Elizabeth Peters plunges her intrepid family into a ruse involving kidnapping, murder, and life-threatening danger, sparked by Amelia's quick-witted dialogue and Emerson's gruff grumbles of wisdom. The incomparable Barbara Rosenblat invests each character with a unique voice and personality. There is never confusion as to which character is being portrayed, and Rosenblat's timing is, as usual, flawless. If silent film star Lon Chaney was "the man of a thousand faces," Barbara Rosenblat is "the woman of a thousand voices." M.T.B. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine
