Best-selling mystery author Elizabeth Peters has captured the hearts of thousands of readers with her spunky Victorian Egyptologist, Amelia Peabody Emerson. In Seeing a Large Cat, Amelia must ensnare a modern-day killer, a bogus spiritualist, and a predatory debutante in the awesome Valley of the Kings. Someone is sending ominous messages: "Stay away from tomb Twenty-A!" Intrigued, parasol-wielding Amelia won't rest until she finds the forbidden burial site.

The narrator really brings out the humour of the story, giving life to the various characters. This book sees the return of Donald and Enid Fraser (from book 4). I particularly enjoyed the parts of the story that were told from Ramses' perspective. I have enjoyed seeing him grow up and play a greater part in the family adventures. The world of Amelia Peabody is a place I always enjoy escaping to!
