Overview

Seeing a Large Cat (Amelia Peabody Series #9) by Elizabeth Peters

No villain is safe in 1903 Egypt as feisty archaeologist Amelia Peabody embarks on her ninth adventure.

According to an ancient Egyptian papyrus, dreaming of a large cat means good luck. And that's just what Amelia Peabody could use, as her growing family matures in the new century. What's more, Amelia's dashing husband Emerson has received a mysterious warning not to enter the Valley of the Kings. To Emerson's annoyance, Amelia's meddling distracts her attention as she exposes a fraudulent spiritualist, saves a marriage, and plays matchmaker. But diabolical forces are at work when an unknown tomb reveals a shocking murder -- and the Peabody family dodges bullets from an assassin determined to put an end to their discoveries.

A pleasure to read. If you like the Egyptian local this mystery is for you.

This is the first book by Elizabeth Peters that I have ever read. I have to say that I have found a new author to enjoy. Now I just have to go back and read the eight previous books. I love a good mystery and the exotic location was certainly part of the fun. This story takes place in 1903 Eygpt and centers on a family of egyptologists. Amelia Peabody, as the matriarch, is as fussy sometimes as she is unorthodox, which makes her so much fun to read about. Trouble seems to find her, much to her dismay, at every turn. A murderer is on the loose and sending cryptic messages, which forces this family into action. A twisty turny who-dun-it, with a likable cast of characters.

This was the last Amelia Peabody novel I needed to read to have read all in the series (these were not read in order), and this is, by far, one of my favorites. I couldn't put it down.

I have read all of the other Amelia Peabody books and I think that this was one of my favorites! The plot was interesting and the mystery intriguing till the end and it was fun seeing more of Ramses, Nefret and David as they start to become bigger contributors to the plot. If you like mysteries with a Indiana Jones like heroine and stories dealing with Egypt then you'll love this series!

In Seeing a Large Cat, characters who have evolved over the prior eight books in the series become even more richly defined and more intriguingly interrelated. Read this book, and the prior books in the series for the entertaining relationship of an iron-willed heroine, her bombastic husband and their web of family and friends who find themselves at historical and cultural crossroads in Egypt and England. It is the early 1900s, and Egyptian archeology is at its heights. By this, book 9, the next generation are just coming into their own, with their unique angles on Egyptology, life in Egypt and adventures. It is a rich reward for readers who have followed them through childhood in the earlier books. All in all, an amusing read for compelling characters, interesting situations, light adventure and cultural/historical context.
