Journal Entry 1 by catsalive from Rooty Hill, New South Wales Australia on Monday, October 06, 2008 Review
Elizabeth Peters's unforgettable heroine Amelia Peabody makes her first appearance in this clever mystery. Amelia receives a rather large inheritance and decides to use it for travel. On her way through Rome to Egypt, she meets Evelyn Barton-Forbes, a young woman abandoned by her lover and left with no means of support. Amelia promptly takes Evelyn under her wing, insisting that the young lady accompany her to Egypt, where Amelia plans to indulge her passion for Egyptology. When Evelyn becomes the target of an aborted kidnapping and the focus of a series of suspicious accidents and mysterious visitations, Amelia becomes convinced of a plot to harm her young friend. Like any self-respecting sleuth, Amelia sets out to discover who is behind it all.

I've read one other Amelia Peabody and enjoyed it. Thanks for the chance to try another one.

The characters, plot and description are all delightfully entertaining, but the characters are definitely the most entertaining.

On it's way to a new home after being chosen in the Make-Me-Read-It Relay.

Absolutely charming - all the characters were wonderful, especially Amelia who is now my new idol! Good mystery, I didn't see the ending coming at all - only some of the developing inter-character relationships were predictable, but not annoyingly so.

Picked out of the Oz VBB and on its way!
