"Between Amelia Peabody and Indiana Jones, it's Amelia--in wit and daring--by a landslide."
--New York Times Book Review

Intrepid archaeologist and superior sleuth Amelia Peabody returns in A River in the Sky. In this breathtaking new adventure, New York Times bestselling Grand Master Elizabeth Peters transports the indomitable Amelia and her family, the Emersons, from their usual milieu, early twentieth-century Egypt, to an exciting--and dangerous--new locale: Palestine! A tale full of atmosphere, intrigue, and thrills, A River in the Sky is further proof that "Peters has few rivals" (Houston Chronicle).

August 1910. Amelia Peabody and her husband, -Emerson, are relaxing at home in Kent. But adventure beckons when Major George Morley asks them to join an expedition to Palestine, where he is determined to unearth the legendary Ark of the Covenant. Always -skeptical, Emerson refuses until requests from the War -Office and Buckingham Palace persuade him to -reconsider by -insisting that Morley is a German agent intent on -stirring up trouble.

Amelia and Emerson follow Morley to Jerusalem and hope to reunite with their son, Ramses, working north of the holy city. But before they can meet, Ramses learns of a deadly plot, information he must pass on to his -parents--if he can get to them alive.
