The last camel is dead, and Egyptologist Amelia Peabody, her dashing husband, Emerson, and precocious son, Ramses, are in dire straits on the sun-scorched desert sands. Months before, back in cool, green England, Viscount Blacktower had approached them to find his son and his son's new bride, who have been missing in war-torn Sudan for over a decade. An enigmatic message scrawled on papyrus and a cryptic map had been delivered to Blacktower, awakening his hope that the couple was still alive. Neither Amelia nor Emerson believes the message is authentic, but the treasure map proves an irresistible temptation. Now, deep in Nubia's vast wasteland, they discover too late how much treachery is afoot (and on camelback)...and survival depends on Amelia's solving a mystery as old as ancient Egypt and as timeless as greed and revenge.



"If Indiana Jones were female, a wife and mother who lived in Victorian times, he would be Amelia Peabody Emerson...Combining a fierce affection for her family with indefatigable independence, stalwart Amelia proves once again an immensely likable heroine." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Another interest-holding and humorously told Amelia Peabody Victorian suspense tale." ( School Library Journal)
"The plot twists and's delicious." ( Washington Times)

Buch sehr gut - Sprecherin nicht so

Ein spannendes Hörbuch! Amelia at her best, mit trockenem Humor, ihrem bewährten Instrumentengürtel um die Hüften verabreicht sie auch schon mal den Kamelen eine Dosis Brandy. Der Genuß wird nur von der US Sprecherin getrübt, die teilweise in Südstaatendialekt verfällt, nicht sehr englisch. Deshalb nur 3 Sterne. Barbara Rosenblat ist beiweitem besser leider ist dieses Buch mit ihr nicht erhältlich.
