Murder Most Egyptological : A Mrs. Xavier Stayton Mystery
Mrs. Xavier Stayton and her loyal friend, Lucy Wallace, are headed to Egypt! On the trail of a missing photographer, what perils await the pair in The Valley of the Kings? What's to fear, a mummy's curse, a nefarious plot, or a sinister individual manipulating the events? Dashing archeologists, deceitful dames and the mystique of Egypt, mustn't stand in the way of finding the truth. It would seem that the clues are as obvious as the nose on The Great Sphinx's face ...until Mrs. X is on the case! What do the critics have to say? Peter Weston, Royal Air & Transport cabin boy: "What a fantastic book. I was in it at the beginning and the end!" Onslow Farber, curator of the London Museum of Art and Antiquities: "Mrs. Stayton's talent at writing is only surpassed by her generosity." Martha Kincaid, former retainer of the Stayton family: "I underestimated Mrs. Xavier, all the same, in her own vernacular, this book is melodramatic hog wash."
