“Between Amelia Peabody and Indiana Jones, it’s Amelia—in wit and daring—by a landslide.”
— New York Times Book Review
Intrepid archaeologist and superior sleuth Amelia Peabody returns in A River in the Sky . In this breathtaking new adventure, New York Times bestselling Grand Master Elizabeth Peters transports the indomitable Amelia and her family, the Emersons, from their usual milieu, early twentieth-century Egypt, to an exciting—and dangerous—new locale: Palestine! A tale full of atmosphere, intrigue, and thrills, A River in the Sky is further proof that “Peters has few rivals” ( Houston Chronicle ).
