I am grateful that Peabody and Emerson continue to be so very much themselves, even after marriage. Peters does an excellent job of maintaining the passion, wit, sarcasm, and affection between them, and their dialogue continues to scintillate. This third book marks the first time they bring their precocious and devious son, Ramses, along on their archaeological dig. I found him to be by turns annoying and impish, but decidedly a child of Peabody and Emerson. He also affects a speech impediment, which Peabody surmises he does to annoy her—it annoyed me, too, though, having to suffer through reading it rendered phonetically.
