The Golden One is certain to be the best yet for the Amelia Peabody series. With previous successes The Lord of the Silent and He Shall Thunder in the Sky, Egyptologist and millionaire Amelia Peabody Emerson is back in Egypt hunting down tomb robbers, uncovering antiquities fraud, and meddling in the life of her son Ramses. In 1917, with the war looming in the distance, Amelia and her family return to Egypt for an extensive archaeological dig after learning of another tomb that was desecrated by thieves. Hot on their trail, Amelia's family is thrown into disarray when her son, Ramses, is called away by the British government for a covert operation in Gaza, the gateway to the Holy Land. As a spy, Ramses accepts the assignment, but his meddling mother is lurking not far behind. Dressed in disguise, Amelia, her husband Radcliffe and Ramses' wife Nefret embroil themselves in this perilous caper that places them all on the path of mortal danger. If you've never listened to an Elizabeth Peters book before, this is one you won't want to miss. From the opening line to the last word, this book delivers unequalled suspense and colorful characters. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat's unique voice and eloquent style bring these characters vividly to life.
