Description

"Irresistible....Amelia is still a joy."
--New York Times Book Review



The intrepid archeologist Amelia Peabody and her fearless family, the Emersons, are back in Egypt, and something very nasty is afoot in Lord of the Silent--New York Times bestselling Grandmaster Elizabeth Peters's sparkling adventure with more riddles than the Sphinx and more close calls and stunning escapes than an Indiana Jones movie. Reviewers are simply agog over Lord of the Silent, calling it, "Wonderfully entertaining" (Washington Times), "Deeply satisfying" (Entertainment Weekly), and in the words of the Toronto Globe and Mail, "The hype is true. This is Peters's best book."

Back cover copy

The ghosts of an ancient past and the specters of a present-day evil are buried beneath the Egyptian sands . . .

For archaeologist Amelia Peabody and her family, the allure of Egypt remains as powerful as ever, even in 1915, as a World War rages. But nowhere in this exotic land is safe--especially for Amelia's son Ramses and his beautiful new wife Nefret. Treachery and danger pursue the two young lovers across the desert nation, strengthening a bond of passion and devotion that only death can sever. And the grim discovery of a recent corpse in a tomb where it does not belong is pulling Amelia deeper into a storm of intrigue, corruption, kidnapping, and murder--and toward dark revelations that threaten to awaken the past . . . and alter the family's destiny.
