Can fear kill? There are those who believe so—but Amelia Peabody is skeptical. A respected Egyptologist and amateur sleuth, Amelia has foiled felonious schemes from Victoria's England to the Middle East. And she doubts that it was a Nineteenth-Dynasty mummy's curse that caused the death of a night watchman in the British Museum. The corpse was found sprawled

I love this series. I bought books 1-4 for my nook. I am a little ticked off that Barnes & Noble would put a series in ebook format and LEAVE ONE OUT! UGH! Like I am going to spend all this money on a e reader and then have to buy one stupid book in the series. Bummer. I wish they would hurry up and make it an ebook. :) Please hit button requesting it as an ebook for me please. Thanks!

I own hard copies of the entire series, and love it so much that I sat down at my computer today to re-order all the books for my new Nook reader. What an unpleasant surprise to discover this volume is missing from the e-series. I'm not ordering with a missing book. Despite the enormous space-saving advantages of switching to an electronic reader and the lovely thought of clearing the walls of physical books out of my house, I still have real doubts about the value of the Nook. Finding one volume missing, and with no explanation, from such a well-known series, reinforces that concern. I think it's going to be a few years before these readers live up to their publicity. At the very least, dear Barnes and Noble, you owe your readers an explanation so we'll know whether to expect this volume for the Nook soon - or never.

I absolutely love this series and very frustrated that this book in the middle of the series is not available for NOOK! I clicked the button to request it, have no idea how long that will take. Please add!

I love following the characters as they develope and age. I mainly read for escapism and I can get into this world easily. I feel like I know the family and am taking part in their adventures with them.

Elizabeth Peters strikes again! As does a MURDERER! This time Amelia and Emerson are back on England's soil, a rare occurrence for readers for this series. It's interesting to see how the couple gets along in London society, when we're so used to seeing them sweat in the Egyptian desert instead. While reading The Deeds of the Disturber, I was indeed all caught up in the mystery. The ending completely fascinates me. I didn't quite see it coming -- who would!? As this book clearly illustrates, Elizabeth Peters has to be a follow Sherlock Holmes fan. So many little "clues" she left for the reader, even down to Emerson's deduction skills, and including the daring name of one Mrs. Watson. Some of the little clues like this made me laugh. I do so enjoy these books, and I heartily recommend them as adult fiction. Some mature (but sweet) content is included.
