The Mummy Case by Elizabeth Peters

Book 3. After the death of the author of these memoirs (of which this is the third volume to appear), her heirs felt that her animated (if biased) descriptions of the early days of excavation in Egypt should not be kept from historians of that period.

Although Elizabeth Peters wrote two other series, the Amelia Peabody series has to be the most beloved of her characters. This t The Mummy Case by Elizabeth Peters is a 2007 William Morrow publication. This book was originally published in 1985). It’s always embarrassing when I have to admit I never realized Elizabeth Peters was a pseudonym for the one and only Barbara Michaels, until about five years ago. When I made that connection, I was determined to get know this side of this talented author. This 3rd book in the Amelia Peabody series was a huge disapointment. The first two were hilarious and fun to read, despite the weakness of a having a pretty vague or unremarkable mysterie at their core. Peters seems to not have had much of a thought as to who the perpetrators or the mytery should be whe sitting down and writing this book.

Book was The Mummy Case, the 3rd book in Elizabeth Peters’ Amelia Peabody series. This is me trying to fill in the holes in this series. I had picked up the next book in the series that I owned, and realized that too much had happened that I wasn’t aware of. So, I’m actually visiting the library. Will wonders ever cease? However, I had a harder time getting through this one. I don’t know if it’s because the writing is more refined later in the series, or if I had just reached my limit of Amelia Peabody books for the time being

Elizabeth Peters earned her P. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago’s famed Oriental Institute. During her fifty-year career, she wrote more than seventy novels and three nonfiction books on Egypt. She received numerous writing awards and, in 2012, was given the first Amelia Peabody Award, created in her honor. Peters said she'd never intended the first book as the beginning of a series. I think the second one shows that and this one is much improved. The plot is still silly and unbelievable but the characters shine and she is really getting into stride with Ramses.

I have all the Amelia Peabody novels in hard cover. I am in the process of re-reading them and, starting with the first in the series, "Crocodile On The Sandbank", I am downloading them onto my Kindle. Re-reading the series is as enjoyable now as it was many years ago.
I love these books. The characters have become friends whose adventures have taken me to exotic locales and introduced me to fascinating people. I particularly love the descriptions of excavating in Egypt back in the 19th century.
I honestly didn't think it was possible to love this series any more, but I do. Amelia and Emerson together are a fantastic mix, but add to that their son Ramses on the adventure and it just keeps getting better! This type of family would be an exhausting pleasure to know.

While the mysteries themselves are only so-so, it is the characters and the setting that keep me coming back for more and thinking about this book while I am not reading it. Really and truly, this is the type of characterization that is such a treasure to find these days since it is in short supply. Ms. Peters really knows her stuff and I can easily imagine myself in the crowded streets of Cairo, in the open deserts of Dashoor or trying to find my way out of a pyramid.

There is still quite a bit of romantic tension between Amelia and Emerson, but they have settled into the married life quite nicely. This time they bring their son Ramses along and he gets into, causes, and helps solve many of his own little scraps. I don't think I could honestly handle this type of a kid with as much aplomb as Amelia does, but whatever happens it is truly hilarious. I constantly find myself chuckling at how Amelia sees the world and at times she is quite insightful.

I've begun collecting this series (and boy, it there quite a bit of it!) because I know that I will be coming back to it again and again. Truly masterful!
The Amelia Peabody books are a wonderful combination of accurate historical archaeology, comedy, and mystery. Peters excels at all of them. Since she has a PhD in Egyptology, you can trust her accuracy about things Egyptological. Very highly recommended. And if you like ancient Egypt try her two non-fiction books -- Red Land, Black Land, and Temples, Tombs, and Hieroglyphs. They are older, but the combine good scholarship with great writing to make books that you cannot put down.
Peters said she'd never intended the first book as the beginning of a series. I think the second one shows that and this one is much improved. The plot is still silly and unbelievable but the characters shine and she is really getting into stride with Ramses. Is lived in Egypt and have great respect and love for the Egyptian people and I am always so grateful to her for treating them with the respect and dignity they deserve. As a writer of historical mysteries I wish I could do one tenth as well...
I stumbled onto this author and book and absolutely loved the story, characters and the whole adventure!! So fun reading about the excavations, explorations of Amelia Peabody. I liked her and felt her style was so modern and yet in keeping with what the times expected of women. Looking forward to the next adventure.
Strains credulity, especially concerning the reasoning abilities of a seven-year old, no matter how precocious, and the resolution of various life or death matters. Still, a good entry in the series, with an exciting ending, and well worth reading if you're an Amelia Peabody fan.
This is the first time I have read a book by this author. The story is interesting and engaging, the fact that it is set in Egypt is wonderful. The pyramids and the mystery make this an enjoyable story. The characters are interesting and the two main characters interactions are unique and enjoyable. Recommend ed reading.
I love the Amelia Peabody mysteries by Elizabeth Peters. The droll and very British way that Amelia talks is charming and sometimes very funny. Ms. Peters characters are unique and interesting and the mysteries are always fun to try and figure out - although I don't often come up with the perpetrator before they are revealed in the story!
