Publisher's Summary

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. But when the excavation yields an unusual mummy, she suddenly must protect both her family and the macabre discovery.

Her Ph.D. in Egyptology enables Elizabeth Peters to portray a lavishly detailed turn-of-the-century Egypt in her lively tale of crisp wit and shivery suspense. The spirited cast including Amelia, her eccentric family, and an array of international characters bursts into life with Barbara Rosenblat's brilliant narration.

Don't miss the rest of the Amelia Peabody series.

    "An entertaining listen"

    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!

    "Seeing a Large Cat"

    I can only repeat that I love the Amelia Peabody books. The stories are good and educational, and the characters are brought to life by Barbara Rosenblat.

    "Old-style Sweet"

    Really enjoyed this, in the style of an Agatha Christie novel. Good characters, well-read though with a couple of odd accents that just added to its 'old-style'ness'.

    "Producers and Sound Engineers Read!"

    I really enjoy this series but the biggest detractor was hearing the spit being moved around and swallowing of the narrator. It amazes me these things aren't removed. It's so bad in this book it was all I could do to finish it. It's not present in all of the books so it's possible it was removed or the narrator had it under control. It made me shudder every single time I heard it and it detracts from the listening experience.

    "Good but by far the best."

    I've been an avid reader of these books but I tend to skip around so this is my first time actually listening to this book or reading it as I was doing at the same time it is not as good as others and I truly dislike the storyline for Enid and Donald. It seems nothing like their characters had been turned into bumbling morons for the purpose of writing a book the rest of the story was fairly decent in exploring Ramsey's being a teen because sometimes we forget he is a lot younger than he seems. The book seems like it's good for nothing other than being an introductory for what's about to happen. It is more laid-back but still on the goofy pointless kind. I still recommend it as it is necessary to understand what is to come.

    Love it! A delightful cozy read full of adventure and intrigue! Amelia and Emerson are fabulously and quirkily romantic in their Funny English way and Ramses reveals a deep passionate nature hidden so well normally.
