The 1895-96 season promises to be an exceptional one for Amelia Peabody, her dashing Egyptologist husband, Emerson, and their wild and precocious eight-year-old son, Ramses. The much-coveted burial chamber of the Black Pyramid in Dahshoor is theirs for the digging. But there is a great evil in the wind that roils the hot sands sweeping through the bustling streets and marketplaces of Cairo. The brazen moonlight abduction of Ramses--and an expedition subsequently cursed by misfortune and death--have alerted Amelia to the likely presence of her arch nemesis the Master Criminal, notorious looter of the living and the dead. But it is far more than ill-gotten riches that motivates the evil genius this time around. For now the most valuable and elusive prize of all is nearly in his grasp: the meddling lady archaeologist who has sworn to deliver him to justice . . . Amelia Peabody!

I'm a fan of Emerson family. Their antics and interactions are over the top and entertaining.
This story doesn't disappoint in the antics but it does get more melodramatic than the previous books in the series. There's a lot of mention of Emerson's rippling muscles and fantastic physique. Attraction is a key theme to this story.
The mysteries in this series are never strong but practically non-existent in this installment. Not that it matters much but that makes this volume seem more of a filler or place holder for the next than a story in itself.
A fun read but even more fluffy than that others. Fun but not my favorite. I do enjoy the precociousness of Ramses. What a handful that kid would be!

I plodded through 23 pages before the first engaging action occurred. This novel failed the 50-page test ... send it to "Storage".

Review of (Lion in the Valley)
This is the second time they cross paths with Sethos (the master criminal). He is a chameleon, a master of disguises. No one knows his real name. Amelia finds a couple to help. Ramses is just too curious and gets into trouble. Emerson just wants to explore his dig with no interference and no visitors.
