Inhaltsangabe

A lost journal of Amelia Peabody has been miraculously recovered: a chronicle from one of the "missing years", 1907-1908, shedding light on an already exceptional career...and an unexpected terror.

Ousted from their most recent archaeological dig and banned forever from the Valley of the Kings, the Emersons are spending a quiet summer at home in Kent, England, when a mysterious messenger arrives. Claiming to be the teenage brother of their dear friend, Tarek, he brings troubling news of a strange malady that has struck down Tarek's heir and conveys his brother's urgent need for help only the Emersons can provide.

The family sets off in secret for the mountain fortress from which they narrowly escaped 10 years before. The Emersons are unaware that deception and treachery are leading them onward into a nest of vipers, where a dreadful fate may await. For young Ramses, forced to keep his growing love for the beautiful Nefret secret, temptation along the way may prove his ultimate undoing. And a dark past and grim obligation have ensnared Nefret once again, as she is helpless to save those she loves most from the prison of the Lost Oasis.

Rich with suspense, surprises, unforgettable characters, and the intoxicating atmosphere that has earned her the coveted title of Grand Master two times over, the remarkable Elizabeth Peters proves once again that in the world of historical adventure fiction, she is truly without peer.

Kritikerstimmen

"Peters, as her many accolades would suggest, knows precisely what she is doing as she spins a tale of romance, derring-do, bravery, and, of course, deceptions, betrayals, and disguises in the classic tradition of H. Rider Haggard, if with tongue often in cheek." ( Publishers Weekly)
"A highly entertaining entry in a series that continues to delight." ( Booklist)
