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.

After the Great War, the Emersons, joined by extended family and the Vandergelds, go back to excavation, with grandchildren. Complicated trouble comes to them, naturally. Naturally, they solve the puzzles. Fun to watch Ramses and David, along with Nefret, Lia, Emerson and Peabody, interact with both the children, and Sethos. Not the best in the series, but for fans still not one to be missed. The introduction is a wonderful summing up, in case the Reader is meeting the characters for the first time.

The Great War has ended, but evil still casts a long shadow over a violence-scarred land.

One woman - an adventurer and archaeologist with a brilliant mind - must now confront a dreadful adversary more fiendish and formidable than any she has ever encountered. But by doing so, she may be feeding the flames of a devastating firestorm that threatens the fragile lives of the tender and innocent.
