I read this for the Series Challenge and for the What's in a Name Challenge (animal) . This is book #7 in the Amelia Peabody series that I've dipped into here and there over the years. There are 12 more to get me caught up. I'm sure Ms Peters will have written more before that happens, though.
I really enjoy the story of Amelia and Emerson and their archaeological discoveries. In this installment Emerson looses his memory which adds undue complications in catching the "Master Criminal." There's plenty of adventure, intrigue and a bit of marital romance combined with a good mystery. It was fun to pick up a book and read about likable, crotchety characters you are familiar with. This series is comfortable and totally enjoyable.
