        September 28, 1992
        Indomitable Amelia Peabody is nearly undone in the latest romantic thriller to feature this strong-minded Victorian archeologist and her husband, Radcliffe Emerson. Leaving in England their precocious son Ramses and Nefret, an orphan girl whom they rescued from an ancient Sudanese city in The Last Camel Died at Noon , Amelia and Emerson return to Egypt. Assorted kidnapping attempts, including one from Shepheard's hotel, suggest that someone, probably their archenemy (known as the Master Criminal), seeks to uncover the location of Nefret's lost city of gold. Amelia courageously rescues Emerson after he is abducted, only to find he has lost his memory, even of his love for her. In the company of wealthy American archeologist Cyrus Vandergelt, they proceed to a dig to search for Nefertiti's tomb, where Amelia tries to awaken Emerson's memory while hoping to disprove an ancient superstition that threatens death by snake, crocodile and dog. Amelia, beset by doubt but undaunted, is in top form as Peters supplies a surprise ending to cap her surefire entertainment. 50,000 first printing; author tour.

        Peters's romantic thriller, in which the indomitable Victorian archeologist Amelia Peabody searches for Nefertiti's tomb, offers surefire entertainment.

        Each addition to the deservedly popular Amelia Peabody series displays new facets of Peters's rich talent and whets the appetite for more. This archaeological season, Amelia and husband Emerson leave unruly son Ramses in England with beautiful ward Nefret ( The Last Camel Died at Noon, Warner, 1991). Amelia anticipates time alone with Emerson, but the Master Criminal devises otherwise: In his quest for directions to the fabulous Lost Oasis, he attempts abduction, subterfuge, and espionage. High adventure, narrated in Amelia's witty, inimitably resplendent style. Peabody fans will rejoice. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/1/92; for an interview with Elizabeth Peters, see "The Three Faces of Mertz/Peters/Michaels," p. 128.--Ed.

        YA- -Although this seventh in the series picks up where The Last Camel Died at Noon (Warner, 1991) ends, it stands delightfully on its own. Amelia's self-assuredness, her devotion to her husband, and her honesty with her readers match well her inventive embrace of adventure. Danger, although constantly present, is balanced with intrigue, confidences, romance, and intellectual exercise as readers gallop headlong into the mysteries surrounding a venture on the Nile. Teens will enjoy fine writing, learn some Egyptian history and meet an indomitable heroine, all between these covers.- Barbara Hawkins, Oakton High School, Fairfax, VA
