Overview

The Hippopotamus Pool (Amelia Peabody Series #8) by Elizabeth Peters

When a masked stranger offers to reveal an Egyptian queen's lost tomb to Amelia and Emerson in 1900, they are intrigued to say the least. But the guide mysteriously disappears, leaving them to sail to Thebes to follow his trail. The fact that Ramses and Nefret are along on the journey both helps and hampers efforts to solve this mystery. Soon all four are risking their lives as they foil kidnappers, grave robbers and ancient curses. And intrepid Amelia finds herself faced with a surprising new villain who is every bit as clever and resourceful as she is!

Who wouldn't love Amelia Peabody and her family? I am in the process of re-reading the series and adding the books to my nook. The author is a credited Egyptologist so you will only get the true history of Egypt which I love, but add that to excellent writing, little or no profanity and you have a very readable, and enjoyable series of books. The author gives just the right amount of romance and mystery/suspense to engage men or women readers. I highly recommend this series for pure enjoyment, just hope the author will write more, I believe there are presently 19.

If there is any problem with The Hippopotamus Pool, it is the excess of riches that Elizabeth Peters lavishes on her readers. As in all of her later novels, once her wonderful cast of characters started to grow, it is possible to lose track of the mystery in the family reunion. Still, the characters, the setting, and the style are dazzling, and the mystery won't disappoint.

Full of fun and excitement, this is a wonderful chapter in the series. I've read them all and this one is excellent. But, you'll want to start at the beginning, won't you?
