Someone is sending ominous messages: "Stay away from tomb Twenty-A!" Intrigued, parasol-wielding Amelia won't rest until she finds the forbidden burial site. But when the excavation yields an unusual mummy, she suddenly must protect both her family and the macabre discovery.Her Ph.D. in Egyptology enables Elizabeth Peters to portray a lavishly detailed turn-of-the-century Egypt in her lively tale of crisp wit and shivery suspense. The spirited cast including Amelia, her eccentric family, and an array of international characters bursts into life with Barbara Rosenblat's brilliant narration.

An entertaining listen

The narrator really brings out the humour of the story, giving life to the various characters. This book sees the return of Donald and Enid Fraser (from book 4). I particularly enjoyed the parts of the story that were told from Ramses' perspective. I have enjoyed seeing him grow up and play a greater part in the family adventures. The world of Amelia Peabody is a place I always enjoy escaping to!
