Read full description of the books:
The second book in the series and I enjoyed it every bit as much as I did the first.
It's the two main characters who absolutely make these books. There is Amelia Peabody who believes herself to be the most intelligent person in any room - and sometimes she is, just not always. Don't try to tell her that though! She is one of those fabulous Victorian women who went out as explorers, riding camels (or donkeys in this case) in the desert and crawling around in hot, dirty excavations in totally unsuitable clothes. She also has the driest and best sense of humour which she uses mostly to spar with her husband Emerson. Some of their conversations are really laugh aloud funny. They make a very good team and a delightful example of a well married couple.
The story is Agatha Christie like. People keep turning up dead, there are clues aplenty, most of them red herrings and at the end there is a gathering of characters where the whole affair is explained. I needed that because I did not have a clue what was happening. My failure, not the author's:)
This was a real pleasure to read and I am looking forward to the next one.
