Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Peters’ fans will relish this latest adventure that explores mysteries of the heart as well as murder.” Publishers Weekly
“The eccentricities of the Emerson family are lavishly and deliciously presented by narrator Barbara Rosenblat…She delights listeners with the portraits while never allowing them to impede the suspense so carefully woven through the story.…Her performance is a pharaoh’s treasure.” AudioFile
“As usual, Peters’ zesty characters…are marvelous, and there’s plenty of lively repartee to push the story along. The comedy is great, as well, with Peters knowing precisely how to balance starchy Amelia’s officious social respectability with her penchant for meddling in other people’s affairs.” Booklist
“Essential reading from a pro.” Library Journal
“The incomparable Ms. Peters hits an all-time high with the ninth chapter in her exceptionally witty and exciting adventure series. The real joy in this book is the emergence of Ramses as a potential new action hero.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
