This third book in the series is the best so far, mainly because of the presence of Ramses, Amelia and Emerson's precocious son. It's not clear how old he is, 4 or 5, and he can't yet pronounce 'th', making his rather long speeches quite amusing. They have taken him to Egypt for their current dig, which is at a mediocre site. Not far away at Dashoor another group is excavating some pyramids, which Amelia has been longing for. Ramses is allowed to do digging of his own as long as he takes along a guardian. Naturally there is mayhem and suspicious characters galore.

José Luís  Fernandes If this book is the best, why did the second have a better rating? I'm just curious. (smile)

Vicki Cline Guess I'm not consistent. I should look over my ratings again. They're from when I read the series the first time years ago.

José Luís  Fernandes Thank you. You have broken my paradox (laugh).

Skeetor I like the new cover...although the woman reminds me a bit of Barbara Steele
