** spoiler alert ** This Amelia Peabody adventure has some tomb robbing and a dead body but that isn't the real mystery. The adventure continues as again Ramses is pressed into a secret mission for the British government. But this time his parents and wife are on his trail as back up. I was very happy for Cyrus and his finally getting the "find" of a lifetime. He has been a loyal friend and deserved a reward. I thought some parts went on a little long. The adventure of the parents and wife was a fun but a bit far fetched and although there was a lot of detail they weren't really needed for the action. I think Peters had to write them there just because their characters wouldn't have sat mildly by while Ramses risked his life again.
