Elizabeth Peters's unforgettable heroine Amelia Peabody makes her first appearance in this clever mystery. Amelia receives a rather large inheritance and decides to use it for travel. On her way through Rome to Egypt, she meets Evelyn Barton-Forbes, a young woman abandoned by her lover and left with no means of support. Amelia promptly takes Evelyn under her wing, insisting that the young lady accompany her to Egypt, where Amelia plans to indulge her passion for Egyptology. When Evelyn becomes the target of an aborted kidnapping and the focus of a series of suspicious accidents and mysterious visitations, Amelia becomes convinced of a plot to harm her young friend. Like any self-respecting sleuth, Amelia sets out to discover who is behind it all.

Great reading for anyone who is tired of all the graphic descriptions in books so many writers feel they need to sell books.
I intend to read Elizabeth Peters' other novels. She writes under her pen names Elizabeth Peters, Barbara Michaels ,and her real name - Barbara Mertz.
I officially love the characters, Evelyn, Amelia, Walter and even Emerson. They are complex individuals and while sometimes I wanted to smack them, I have fallen in love with them! They have their faults but they are good people.
Amelia is the stubborn, kick-butt feminist set in the 1880s I didn't know I needed.
The plot is slow I guess but I enjoyed reading it. The writing flowed well to me and it was, exactly like it says, a cozy read. And as I got closer to the end I was enjoying trying to figure out the mystery and no, I didn't figure it out until it told me!
That ending! <3
A very interesting setting and very well written
