3 Elizabeth Peters Crocodile on the Sandbank [An Amelia Peabody Mystery]
Grand Central Publishing 239909 USA 2002 0445406518 / 9780445406513 Softcover Near Fine Condition Amelia Peabody, that indomitable product of the Victorian age, embarks on her first Egyptian adventure armed with unshakable self-confidence, a journal to record her thoughts, and, of course, a sturdy umbrella.On her way, Amelia rescues young Evelyn Barton-Forbes, who has been "ruined" and abandoned on the streets of Rome by her rascally lover. With a typical disregard for convention, Amelia promptly hires her fellow countrywoman as a companion and takes her to Cairo.Eluding Alberto, Evelyn's former lover, who wants her back, and Evelyn's cousin Lord Ellesmere, who wishes to marry her, the two women sail up the Nile. They disembark at an archeological site run by the Emerson brothers -- the irascible, but dashing, Radcliffe and the amiable Walter. Soon their little party is increased by one -- one mummy, that is, and a singularly lively example of the species. Strange visitations, suspicious accidents, and a botched kidnapping convince Amelia that there is a plot afoot to harm Evelyn.But no villain, or mummy, is a match for the doughty Amelia. How she arranges all to her satisfaction is just one of the pleasures of this delightfully witty mystery. 262 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Grand Central Publishing 239910 USA 2002 0445406488 / 9780445406483 Softcover Very Good Condition The joys of home and hearth are about to drive Victorian gentlewoman Amelia Peabody Emerson mad. While she and her husband, the renowned archeologist Radcliffe Emerson, dutifully go about raising their young son Ramses, she dreams only of the dust and detritus of ancient civilizations. Providentially, a damsel in distress -- coupled with a promising archeological site -- demands their immediate presence in Egypt.The damsel is Lady Baskerville, and the site is a tomb in Luxor recently discovered by Sir Henry Baskerville -- who promptly died under bizarre circumstances. The tabloids immediately scream "The Curse of the Pharaohs!"Amelia and Radcliffe arrive to find the camp in disarray, the workers terrified, and a most eccentric group of guests. A ghost even appears.This is not at all what Amelia considers an atmosphere conducive to scientific discovery. Never one to deny others the benefit of her advice and example, the indomitable Victorian sets about bringing order to chaos and herself that much closer to danger. How Amelia triumphs over the forces of evil -- and those who would stand between her and her beloved antiquities -- makes for a delightfully spirited adventure. 285 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

The Deeds of the Disturber [An Amelia Peabody Murder Mystery], Elizabeth Peters
5 Elizabeth Peters The Deeds of the Disturber [An Amelia Peabody Murder Mystery]
HarperCollins 239906 USA 2011 0061999229 / 9780061999222 Softcover Very Good Condition Can fear kill? There are those who believe so--but Amelia Peabody is skeptical. A respected Egyptologist and amateur sleuth, Amelia has foiled felonious schemes from Victoria's England to the Middle East. And she doubts that it was a Nineteenth-Dynasty mummy's curse that caused the death of a night watchman in the British Museum. The corpse was found sprawled in the mummy's shadow, a look of terror frozen on the guard's face. What--or who--killed the unfortunate man is a mystery that seems too intriguingly delicious for Amelia to pass up, especially now that she, her dashing archaeologist husband, Emerson, and their precocious son, Ramses, are back on Britain's shores. But a contemporary curse can be as lethal as one centuries old--and the foggy London thoroughfares can be as treacherous as the narrow, twisting alleyways of Cairo after dark--when a perpetrator of evil deeds sets his murderous sights on his relentless pursuer . . . Amelia Peabody! 470 pages. Tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction::Mystery Fiction; Crime Fiction; ISBN/EAN: 9780061999222. Inventory No: 239906.

Mystery sensation Pelecanos pens the lead story and edits this groundbreaking collection of stories detailing the seedy underside of the nation's capital. This is not an anthology of ill-conceived and inauthentic political thrillers. Instead, in "D.C. Noir, " pimps, whores, gangsters, and con-men run rampant in zones of this city that most never hear about. "From the Chevy Chase housewife who commits a shocking act to the watchful bum protecting Georgetown street vendors, the tome offers a startling glimpse into the cityscape's darkest corners...Fans of the [noir] genre will find solid writing, palpable tension and surprise endings." "Washington Post" "Every story in this all-original noir anthology set in the nation's capital is well-written." "Publishers Weekly" "Imbued with countless collective years of local experience." "Washington City Paper" "[Pelecanos] has assembled a compelling mix of ex-convicts, retired police officers, former crime beat reporters and a few writing pros willing to turn their storytelling eye, whether jaundiced or tender, inward toward the neighborhood...Local haunts and hangouts are lovingly drawn." "Washington Times" "Pick up a copy of the book "D.C. Noir."..and prepare to be transported to a different D.C. that the tourists see...Pure Washingtonian." "Washingtonian" "Those looking for redemption in humanity would do well to look elsewhere, but this set of gritty urban tales, written with all the requisite touches of shadow and fog of the noir masters, is a rare cut for crime aficionados and should pique the interest of anyone who calls the Dark City home."
