Warren I contacted her literary agency and they said they expected her last book (The Painted Lady) to be out in 2017.
I think I saw a July release date but those dates tend to be slippery.

Kate (kwolicki) | 19 comments Wow! That's exciting! I wonder if she finished it herself or if someone completed it.

From what I recall. She wrote her books using an outline.
She was working on that book in Feb (her 85th birthday).
She died in Aug but I don't recall her posting anything
about it's progress in-between those dates.

I wish we didn't have to wait so long for that last book. I have all the others. This one must be in the Amelia Series, right? The title doesn't really fit with the others in the series so I wasn't sure. What was her literary agency? Thanks for the update!

Wendy Coles-Littlepage | 5 comments Thanks Kate! I'm new to this group, so not completely up to speed, but does anyone know if the upcoming book is part of the Emerson saga? I hope so!

Yes it is. That's one of the few things I'm fairly sure of.
I believe that she was planning for this one to be the last in the series.

Warren From her official web site
"The projected publication date is July 2017"
It is part of the saga

Warren It was an enjoyable book . I liked the plot and ending
"but" parts were noticeably not written by Elizabeth Peters.
Which is probably just as well.

Kate (kwolicki) | 19 comments Yeah, I felt like they weren't quite real Peabody Emersons. Boy do I miss the years when you could anticipate one or even two MPM books and annoy the library calling and asking if the book was in yet.
