The Great War has ended at last. Archaeologist Amelia Peabody and her husband, Emerson, the distinguished Egyptologist, no longer fear for the life of their daring son, Ramses, now free from his dangerous wartime obligations to British Intelligence. Delightful new additions to the growing Emerson family and new wonders waiting to be discovered beneath the shifting Egyptian sands mark a time of new beginnings in Luxor. However, the theft of valuable antiquities from the home of a friend -- including a magnificent gold bracelet adorned with the image of the goddess Hathor -- causes great concern. Ramses's encounter with a woman costumed in the veil and gold crown of Hathor herself only deepens the mystery. With those in her circle suddenly plagued by a series of "accidents," Amelia attempts to connect these troubling threads into a pattern. But her investigation is setting her on a collision course with an adversary more formidable than any she has ever encountered.

This entire series is great! Strong, fascinating characters, with much detail about archaeology and British politics of the late 19th and early 20th century. The author (Barbara Mertz with pen name Elizabeth Peters) has a PhD in Egyptology and is the author of several popular series of fiction. The main characters in this series are fictional, the activities of the characters are "larger than life" in many instances, which makes them quite entertaining, but within a historical context that is quite true to life. See the book "Amelia Peabody's Egypt: A Compendium" for details on that context. (I enjoyed this series as hardback books.)
