Happy Wednesday Readers!
So, today I have decided to do another review of book three in the Amelia Peabody series that I have become obsessed with! This series has become one of my favorites and when I say I couldn’t put this book done, I really mean I couldn’t put it down! The Mummy Case by the very talented Elizabeth Peters, follows the headstrong Amelia and her Husband Emerson on their next action packed adventure!
The book description comes from the Amazon website:
“Radcliffe Emerson, the irascible husband of fellow archaeologist and Egyptologist Amelia Peabody, has earned the nickname “Father of Curses” — and at Mazghunah he demonstrates why. Denied permission to dig at the pyramids of Dahshoor, he and Amelia are resigned to excavating mounds of rubble in the middle of nowhere. And there is nothing in this barren area worthy of their interest — until an antiquities dealer is murdered in his own shop. A second sighting of a sinister stranger from the crime scene, a mysterious scrap of papyrus, and a missing mummy case have all whetted Amelia’s curiosity. But when the Emersons start digging for answers in an ancient tomb, events take a darker and deadlier turn — and there may be no surviving the very modern terrors their efforts reveal.”
Amelia and Emerson get into some crazy deadly situations and you have to wonder how they are going to get out of it this time. However, this dig is different because they have brought along their adorable son, Ramses, who is such a hoot and a delight that the readers will be laughing at his shenanigans. Every time I read one of these books I am reminded of another famous mystery author, Agatha Christie! Elizabeth leaves the reader on the edge of their seat, and will keep you guessing until the very end. You won’t see the ending coming, but you can rest assured that you will be taken on one thrilling murder mystery ride! This book was so good, that I contemplated taking a sick day at work just to finish it, lol, but I didn’t. If you love ancient Egypt, mystery, mummies, and adventure than this series is for you!
Go on another murder riddled dig with Amelia, Emerson, and Ramses!
