    A reviewer

    The ¿Inspector of Antiquities for all Upper Egypt¿ Feisal arrives at the Munich National Museum to visits assistant curator American expatriate Vicky Bliss. She welcomes her friend who has come so far since THE NIGHT TRAIN TO MEMPHIS caper, but is shocked to see him so far from his beloved Egypt and coming to Germany without telling her. He asks to see her lover antiquities dealer John Tregarth.--------------- Feisal informs John and Vicky that someone stole King Tut¿s mummy from the tomb in the Valley of Kings pyramid. Based on evidence, the Egyptian police believe strongly that notorious art thief Sir John Smythe is the thief. Stunned as Tregarth was once Smythe, but no longer steals anything they begin investigating knowing they will risk Egypt to find the real culprit and return Tut to his resting place----------------------- After too long a wait, Elizabeth Peters fans will welcome the return of the statuesque amateur sleuth who along with her British lover and their Egyptian friend try to prove Sir Smythe is retired and someone else is imitating his M.O. The story line is fun to follow as the connection to Amelia Peabody is obvious with the tour of Egypt that follows in her historical footsteps, which in many ways dominates the plot over the investigation. Readers will enjoy the blissful return of Vicky and John as they struggle to stay alive and out of jail long enough to prove his innocence.---------------- Harriet Klausner

    The travel to and from work was much more enjoyable while listening to this book. I couldn't wait to get started in the morning or to finish work in the evening, so I could find out what was happening next in the story.

    I enjoyed the story as well as the characters. I drive 45min. to work every day, so I look for books on tape as a change from the radio. I enjoy this author very much. I read a book of her's last year and then mailed it to my daughter. I bought another of her books when I purchased this book on cd and can't wait to start reading.

    Worth the wait

    Loved the way MS Peters weaved the story and delighted to learn John Tegarth ancestry. A nice twist.

    Elizabeth Peters does it again!

    As an avid reader of the Vicky Bliss series I was delighted at the annoucement of yet another book following the amateur slueth. Once again I found myself glued to every page of this wonderfully clever book. I highly recommend this 'Laughter of Dead Kings' for anyone who enjoys a good mystery with a dash of romance and a pinch of humor.
