Overview

The Ape Who Guards the Balance (Amelia Peabody Series #10) by Elizabeth Peters

“Delightful….[An] engrossing plot and writing of the highest caliber.”

Washington Times

 

A globe-trotting archeologist with more grit, wit, and fortitude than Indian Jones himself, the intrepid Amelia Peabody confronts danger and dark mystery in the desert sands of Egypt in The Ape Who Guards the Balance—a breathtaking adventure from New York Times bestselling Grandmaster Elizabeth Peters that encompasses treachery, villainy, bloodthirsty cults, the Book of the Dead…and murder most foul. The Charleston Post and Courier proclaims Elizabeth Peters “a mistress of plot,” while the New York Times Book Review declares, “Amelia remains an irrepressible delight.”

this book is so good. especially when the plot thickens. ramses is so brave and mature in this one. amelia and emerson make a wonderful duo as they try and solve the mystery. the best part is the ending, it is so twisted, i would have never of thought of it myself.

The Amelia Peabody series sails on under full steam in The Ape Who Guards the Balance. The purchase of a copy of the Book of the Dead of questionable provenance sets in motion a set of events of dizzying complexity that only the wit of the Sitt Hakim, aided by the truculence of the Father of Curses and the multifarious skills of the usual suspects, can overcome. If there is sometimes a labored effort to give all of the ever-growing cast of characters a star turn, the faithful readers are always glad to see them again. An Egyptian mystery by Elizabeth Peters is always a vacation in itself.

Once again Elizabeth Peters has put out an exceptional book. Though emotions tend to run a little high in this novle, the outcome has a twist which will satisfy any mystery lover. The only question left is how can this be toped? However, I have a feeling Peters will be back to suprise us all!
