9780060591793: The Serpent on the Crown (Amelia Peabody Series)

A priceless relic has been delivered to the Emerson home overlooking the Nile. But more than history surrounds this golden likeness of a forgotten king, for it is said early death will befall anyone who possesses it.

The woman who implores the renowned family of archaeologists and adventurers to accept the cursed statue insists the ill-gotten treasure has already killed her husband. Further, she warns, unless it is returned to the tomb from which it was stolen, more will surely die. With the world finally at peace—and with Egypt's ancient mysteries opened to them once more—Amelia Peabody and her loved ones are plunged into a storm of secrets, treachery, and murder by a widow's strange story and even stranger request. Each step toward the truth reveals a new peril, suggesting this curse is no mere superstition. And the next victim of the small golden king could be any member of the close-knit clan—perhaps even Amelia herself.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Peters earned her Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago's famed Oriental Institute. She was named Grand Master at the inaugural Anthony Awards in 1986 and Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America in 1998. In 2003, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Malice Domestic Convention. She lives in a historic farmhouse in western Maryland.

From AudioFile:

Before the Peabody-Emersons can begin the season's archaeological dig, a flamboyant woman asks Emerson to remove an alleged curse from a rare gold statuette. The close-knit family faces danger and shocking surprises in Elizabeth Peters's seventeenth Amelia Peabody mystery. Harper Audio's author-approved abridgment scrupulously strives to include major characters and plot points. The CD version also provides helpful tracking information on each disc, and, no music to distract from the performance. The truly exceptional Barbara Rosenblat avoids abridgment confusion with her masterful portrayals. Her wit, intelligence, and subtle shadings establish age, class, and motive beyond any doubt. If they ever make a movie of the series, Rosenblat is the perfect choice for all the roles. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
