Happily, circumstances are about to demand their immediate presence in Egypt. Sir Henry Baskerville had just discovered a tomb in Luxor when he promptly died under bizarre circumstances. The tabloids scream of "The Curse of the Pharaohs!" Amelia and her husband arrive to find the camp in disarray and the workers terrified. A ghost even appears. It is not at all what Amelia considers an atmosphere conducive to scientific discovery. Thus the indomitable Victorian sets about bringing order to chaos-and herself close to danger. How Amelia triumphs over evil and those who would stand between her and her beloved antiquities makes for a delightfully spirited adventure., Women archaeologists, Women detectives, Women detectives., [United States]:Blackstone Audio, Inc.,2011., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, f-ua---, hoopla digital.,, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text file, texttxt
