Happy Hump Day!
I hope everyone is having a good week so far. Today I bring you another review of the amazing Amelia Peabody series. This is the fifth book in this series, and it is just as amazing as the rest of the series that I have read so far. The Deeds Of The Disturber by Elizabeth Peters, follows Amelia and her family, on another dangerous mystery where they have to solve it before they become the villains targets.
The book description comes from the Goodreads website:
“Can fear kill? There are those who believe so but Amelia Peabody is skeptical. A respected Egyptologist and amateur sleuth, Amelia has foiled felonious schemes from Victoria’s England to the Middle East. And she doubts that it was a Nineteenth-Dynasty mummy’s curse that caused the death of a night watchman in the British Museum. The corpse was found sprawled in the mummy’s shadow, a look of terror frozen on the guard’s face. What or who killed the unfortunate man is a mystery that seems too intriguingly delicious for Amelia to pass up, especially now that she, her dashing archaeologist husband, Emerson, and their precocious son, Ramses, are back on Britain’s shores. But a contemporary curse can be as lethal as one centuries old and the foggy London thoroughfares can be as treacherous as the narrow, twisting alleyways of Cairo after dark when a perpetrator of evil deeds sets his murderous sights on his relentless pursuer… Amelia Peabody!”
I am still obsessed with this series and it’s amazingly, crazy characters. Elizabeth Peters has created an amazing series, that is sure to last though many generations. If you have never met Amelia Peabody, her husband Emerson, and their son Ramses, you are missing out on one of the best family of sleuths ever created. These books have hooked me, and each adventure is better than the last one! I don’t know what I will do once I finish the entire series, which is why I am trying to take my time with reading the books to prolong the final one. If your looking for a good mystery series that you won’t be able to put down, you need to read this series ASAP.
Until Next Time!
