I'm a fan of Emerson family. Their antics and interactions are over the top and entertaining.
This story doesn't disappoint in the antics but it does get more melodramatic than the previous books in the series. There's a lot of mention of Emerson's rippling muscles and fantastic physique. Attraction is a key theme to this story.
The mysteries in this series are never strong but practically non-existent in this installment. Not that it matters much but that makes this volume seem more of a filler or place holder for the next than a story in itself.
A fun read but even more fluffy than that others. Fun but not my favorite. I do enjoy the precociousness of Ramses. What a handful that kid would be!

I plodded through 23 pages before the first engaging action occurred. This novel failed the 50-page test ... send it to "Storage".

Review of (Lion in the Valley)
This is the second time they cross paths with Sethos (the master criminal). He is a chameleon, a master of disguises. No one knows his real name. Amelia finds a couple to help. Ramses is just too curious and gets into trouble. Emerson just wants to explore his dig with no interference and no visitors.
