Read full description of the books:
I love the Amelia Peabody mysteries. They play upon my love for strong female leads, Egyptology, romance, and a good mystery. I've had fun reading all of the books, but this one? Is probably my favorite since Crocodile on the Sandbank.
Yet another enemy is after the Peabody-Emersons, this time to discover the way to the hidden Meroitic civilization they found in book 6, The Last Camel Died At Noon. Unfortunately, Emerson is kidnapped and subsequently loses his memory, and aside from trying to discover who is attempting to harm them, Amelia must now try to jog her husband's memory, which conveniently disappeared back to the time just before they met.
While the amnesia plot device can be rather hackneyed, Peters uses it to revitalize the relationship between Amelia and Emerson. It is at the same time funny and frustrating, particularly for poor Amelia, who must put up with Emerson as he was before she... er, tamed him.
The mystery itself was a delight. I found myself jumping back and forth between suspects, and when all was revealed at the end, I gasped out loud.
Really, I can't recommend this series highly enough. It's become my mission in life to convert people to the Way of Amelia Peabody. In the last two weeks, I've converted three people. I'm building up good book karma, you see.
