really liked it
bookshelves: cozy-mystery, historical-suspense, series
Read in December, 2009

Instead of solving a mystery that develops as they're excavating, Amelia & Emerson are off to find out what happened years ago to a missing archaeologist and his wife. There is much mention of H. Rider Haggard and King Solomon's Mines. After a grueling trek through the desert, which almost kills Amelia, there is a hidden city and of course information about the missing archaeologist (did we ever doubt that they would be successful?!) An interesting conclusion to their search, and of course Amelia insists that she knew the truth before Emerson did.

Ramses plays a big part in the adventures; his doting mama, of course, is torn between pride at his abilities and chagrin at being upstaged. Love that Ramses!
