"Irresistible....Amelia is still a joy."
—New York Times Book Review
The intrepid archeologist Amelia Peabody and her fearless family, the Emersons, are back in Egypt, and something very nasty is afoot in Lord of the Silent—New York Times bestselling Grandmaster Elizabeth Peters's sparkling adventure with more riddles than the Sphinx and more close calls and stunning escapes than an Indiana Jones movie. Reviewers are simply agog over Lord of the Silent, calling it, "Wonderfully entertaining" (Washington Times), "Deeply satisfying" (Entertainment Weekly), and in the words of the Toronto Globe and Mail, "The hype is true. This is Peters's best book."
