Overview

Lion in the Valley (Amelia Peabody Series #4) by Elizabeth Peters

The 1895-96 season promises to be an exceptional one for Amelia Peabody, her dashing Egyptologist husband, Emerson, and their wild and precocious eight-year-old son, Ramses. The much-coveted burial chamber of the Black Pyramid in Dahshoor is theirs for the digging. But there is a great evil in the wind that roils the hot sands sweeping through the bustling streets and marketplaces of Cairo. The brazen moonlight abduction of Ramses—and an expedition subsequently cursed by misfortune and death—have alerted Amelia to the likely presence of her arch nemesis the Master Criminal, notorious looter of the living and the dead. But it is far more than ill-gotten riches that motivates the evil genius this time around. For now the most valuable and elusive prize of all is nearly in his grasp: the meddling lady archaeologist who has sworn to deliver him to justice . . . Amelia Peabody!

A nice enjoyable read.

Amelia and Emerson are back in Egypt for another season of excavation and archaeology. However, as the odds deem, murder strikes... yet again! Fear of the Master Criminal which Amelia is so sure of deepens the plot. The threat seems to be approaching closer... I have to say... Ramses, the couple's son, is probably my favorite character, with all his innocence, brilliance and sneakiness. He could talk your ear off on topics you've never even heard of! So lovable though. This was yet another great book from Elizabeth Peters. Adults with a sense of humor and a sense of wonder for adventure will enjoy it!

I have read many of Elizabeth Peters books several times, this one included. We get to finally meet the Master Criminal - but having met him in the later books, he does not really strike me as the same man he develops into. But I guess that's hindsight. Amelia is always a fun read. She's always good for laugh and an eyeroll.

I love this author, ELizabeth Peters. All of this Amelia Peabody series is about 1900 murder mysteries with archeologists Radcliff and Amelia Peabody Emerson and their family/asscociates in Egypt. Very intelligent read, very clean; I always learn so much (and have to look up words because she writes like a scholar.) Highly recommended - reading this series for the 2nd time around!
