Publisher Description

After eluding a kidnapper in London, an unperturbed Amelia Peabody accompanies her unconventional family to Cairo once more—only to be ensnared almost immediately in a web of stolen treasures and bloodthirsty cults. Villainy is running rampant in Egypt this 1907 archaeological season, but the members of the intrepid Peabody-Emerson clan have already proven themselves to be formidable adversaries. However, when a mint-condition papyrus of the Book of the Dead falls into their hands, and the corpse of an unscrupulous dealer in stolen antiquities is found floating in the Nile, the Emersons' prospects for surviving this excavation season unscathed appear increasingly dim.

Glaciers in Egypt?

My first impression was the book was written by an Anglophile of all thing English. But it became apparent it was really an attack on the English Gentry at the beginning of the 20th century, with their superiority, racism, sexism, and whatever other -ism she could create. And done with the same hypocrisy she accused them of, only 90 years later.

Reading it made me feel I was watching an over acted high school play about Egyptian mummy artifacts. And the glacier? That is how the plot moved along.
