        April 8, 1996
        A menacing cloud hangs over the eighth adventure of 19th-century archeologists Amelia Peabody and her husband, Radcliffe Emerson (seen before in The Snake, the Crocodile and the Dog). Unfortunately, the cloud rains suspense only in the book's final quarter, long after the warning of a dire threat has paled. In Cairo, Amelia and Emerson are visited by a mysterious man who shows them a scarab ring and claims that it is the symbol of the High Priest of Queen Tetisheri, whom he has sworn to protect. He offers to lead them to her tomb, thereby passing his "sacred duty" onto Emerson. But after the man acts as if he's poisoned and then vanishes, the couple dismiss his words. They are soon reminded of his visit when a notorious antiquities dealer, whom they liken to a hippopotamus because of his girth, warns them to watch whom they trust. With their preteen son, Ramses, and their ward, Nefret, the family travels to western Thebes in search of Tetisheri's tomb. There, after a series of minor mishaps, Ramses is abducted, requiring Amelia and Emerson to begin what seems a nearly impossible task to get him back. The melodramatic 19th-century writing style studded with Amelia's sly wit makes this series unique to the subgenre of historical mysteries. Major ad/promo.

      • content: Egyptologist Amelia Peobody and her intrepid family find themselves hard on the heels of a queen's tomb--and a murderer. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat, an Amerrican who lived for many years in Englnad, is tops in the field for accuracy and consistency of accents, appropriatness of voices and understanding of emotional cues. She has particular fun with this series, a combination of high adventure, comedy of manners and tongue-in-cheek parody. Her voice for young Ramses, who has been called the most obnoxious child ever born of woman or writer, is especially amusing. While this book isn't the strongest of the series., Rosenblat once again deserves kudos for her interpretation. S.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

      • content: Egyptologist Amelia Peabody and family find themselves back in Egypt for their eighth archaeological adventure. Alexandra Thomas's personification of Peabody is brilliantly multidimensional and reveals her humor, creativity and maternal instincts, as well as her famous intelligence. Thomas's interpretation of the dark and wily villain, Peabody's pseudo-intellectual husband/partner, and the mysterious nanny establish her as a master of narrative diversity. Middle-Eastern dialects are effortless for Thomas and create an ominous and pervasive influence which colors the outward appearance of many of the main characters. Alternatively, her portrayal of Peabody's son and young female ward discloses her ability to identify and interpret the emotions of teenagers in the nineteenth century. Alexandra Thomas is a delightfully credible performer! B.L.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
