      Reader Review: Posted April 26, 2010, 6:43 PM EST: I was captivated from the first page to the last. The writing style had my mind enjoying a path of Egyptian history and archeology, possible murder and a truly mesmerizing cast. This husband and wife team "Emerson and Peabody" are archaeologist and amateur sleuths on a dig. The have been called to the site to finish the dig after the death and possible murder of the sites founding archaeologist. Their

relationship is enchantingly real and is reminiscent of other husband and wife sleuthing teams that try to solve a murder without over shadowing or killing the other. From the start, humor and sarcasm between the pair is used in a way that makes you like this couple and want to know more about them. It makes you want to follow them along on their travels. Elizabeth Peters had me captivated and unaware of the perpetrator until the very end. (No small feat!) What a facinating who done-it!
