Description

Return once again with New York Times bestselling Grand Master Elizabeth Peters to a remarkable land of mystery, where murderous intrigues swirl in the Egyptian desert wind . . . The Great War has ended and archaeologist Amelia Peabody welcomes the advent of a season of joy that marks a time of new beginnings, with delightful additions to the Emerson family.

But evil still casts a shadow over this violence-scarred land. The theft of valuable antiquities from the home of a friend causes great concern for the Emersons. And the brutal death of the suspected thief washes the affair in blood.

With members of her circle plagued by mysterious "accidents," Amelia must connect these threads into a recognizable pattern. Will her investigation set her on a collision course with an adversary more fiendish than any she has ever before encountered? Elizabeth Peters was born in Illinois and earned her Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago's famed Oriental Institute.

Notes

Description
It was hard for Sonya Carter to believe that she was only half an hour from civilization, for the feeling of isolation from the world on this tiny island in the Caribbean was almost complete. Sonya had come to Distingue to escape the dark days of her recent past; the offer of a job as tutor to the Dougherty children seemed heaven- sent. And for a time Distingue seemed to live up to the promise of its name--a place of elegance. But there was a darker force on the island, an insane power that sought to bring terror to the most innocent victims of all, the children. Someone was determined to murder them--and only Sonya stood in his way!
