But trouble finds them immediately when David is accused of selling ancient artifacts. While Amelia and company try to clear his name and expose the real culprit, the body of an American is found at the bottom of their excavation shaft.

Falcon at theportals is the same book incorrectly named as the falcon at the portal. Be careful you do not buy both... not sure whythis.was.done. Is.one a pirated.copy?

My god! What a novel, but why so much heartbreak?! I repeat this to myself, over and over and over, as I walked dazedly around the house wondering how I am going to wait six months for the next installment. Elizabeth, why are you doing this to us?

I love the Amelia Peabody series. I've been to Egypt and now long to go back to experience many of the places she talks about. I love Peabody's relationship with Emerson and can't wait to see if Ramses gets the love of his life. Starting book #12 now...

I would recommend that the Amelia Peabody series is read in sequence. I read this book out of sequence and had to go back and re-read it in sequence. It was much more enjoyable when I re-read it!
