Lord of the Silent book. Another wonderful Amelia Peabody and Family archeology mystery!

Lord of the Silent book. Elizabeth Peters showed immense wisdom of the human condition in this aspect of her characterizations, reminding us all that we cannot even be aware of - much less remove - ALL of our preconceptions through which we see the world around us. Even the best of us - like Amelia - can continually peel back the layers of lenses through which we see the world. Another wonderful Amelia Peabody and Family archeology mystery!

For archaeologist Amelia Peabody and her family, the allure of Egypt remains as powerful as ever, even in 1915, as a World War rages. The mystery/suspense aspect of this series is much less than in many mysteries.

For archaeologist Amelia Peabody and her family, the allure of Egypt remains as powerful as ever, even in 1915, as a World War rages. But nowhere in this exotic land is safe-especially for Amelia's son Ramses and his beautiful new wife Nefret. Treachery and danger pursue the two young lovers across the desert nation, strengthening a bond of passion and devotion that only death can sever. The real attraction here is the continuing story of the family itself as it is told from Amelia's own eccentric point of view.

“Irresistible….Amelia is still a joy.” —New York Times Book Review

 

The intrepid archeologist Amelia Peabody and her fearless family, the Emersons, are back in Egypt, and something very nasty is afoot in Lord of the Silent—New York Times bestselling Grandmaster Elizabeth Peters’s sparkling adventure with more riddles than the Sphinx and more close calls and stunning escapes than  an Indiana Jones movie. Reviewers are simply agog over Lord of the Silent, calling it, “Wonderfully entertaining” (Washington Times), “Deeply satisfying”  (Entertainment Weekly), and in the words of the Toronto Globe and Mail, “The hype is true. This is Peters’s best book.”

  • Ramses and Nefret are blissfully happy, Sethos becomes part of the family, Margaret Mitton also joins in, Amelia and Emerson are at their best, and more characters are added to the already wonderfully developed cast of characters. And Abdullah continues to provide clues and remain a part of the story. Another body, more fights and kidnapping, and another shirt ruined. Classic! I'm on to the next one! Oh, and this is the 4th time I've read the series. I always hate coming to the last one. I feel bereft at losing my close companions.

  • Always expect to be entertained when reading another of the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters! I now have all 19 issues in this series that I bought through Amazon and have on my Paper White. I am now re-reading the entire series and am on book #15. It is like visiting a favorite group of relatives and living (with them) their unique life as Egyptologists in the early part of 1910. Think Indiana Jones and his adventures, but actually I think that Amelia is more entertaining! Sincerely, Louise Mustain 4-29-2015

  • As with all the Amelia Peabody books, the narrative is a combination of first person and third person. The form is a bit formal, as this takes place in the Victorian and Edwardian periods where speaking correctly was highly valued, unlike today. If you have followed the series, this and all the other books are a wonderful blend of Ms Peters excellent writing style and (as Egyptologist Barbara Mertz) knowledge of Egypt and its history. Recommend that you start at the beginning and read through the continuing history of the family. Sadly, Ms Peters passed in 2013 but a new book is coming out this month. From what I've read, it will not 'tie up' the loose ends of the family adventures but will be a retrospective to the early years of WWI. I highly recommend the series.

  • Our hero’s are added again solving the mystery after mystery. Poor Emerson doesn’t believe he can possibly have one season of excavation without interruption. It’s amazing how many scrapes they can get into it even more so that they can get out of them. Enjoy the read!

  • Love Amelia and her humour and adventures. It is well written and I have learned alot about Egypt. This is my third reading of the series. I wish they would never end... But, even Amelia agrees like the rest of us. Maybe a Ramses and Nefrit
    series?

  • Like all people who have encountered Elizabeth Peter's books, I love them all. I paticularly enjoy her sly observations of human nature: male, female, children, people from different cultures and professions. Additionally, I love being transported to the ruins and archeological digs in Egypt. My own world falls away and I am in a different land and a different time. I always enjoy the personal encounter of the "father of curses" with the locals, as well as the compassion and insight of "sit hakim". I am always on the lookout for a new book from Ms. Peters and read the old ones over again while I wait. If you have never read one these boods, you are in for a treat.

  • Another great season in Egypt for the Emersons, their family and friends, with all the ingredients--drama, adventure, danger, romance, comedy, spies, intrigue, and cats.

  • This is my second read of the entire series and it has only gotten better. Peabody her family, their adventures, and their mishaps makes a good read.
