Children of the Storm Paperback
Part of the Amelia Peabody series
The fifteenth adventure for Amelia, Emerson and the whole Peabody-Emerson clan!
At last the Great War is over. Amelia, her distinguished Egyptologist husband Emerson and their extended family are preparing for another season of excavation in Egypt.
To everyone's great joy their son Ramses and his wife Nefret have become parents.
Amelia, enjoying her role of fond (yet firm) grandmother, hopes that for once, this will be a quiet year with Ramses no longer undertaking perilous missions for British intelligence and no old enemies on their trail.
Amelia is sadly mistaken. Past dangers cast shadows across the seemingly peaceful present, and a new adversary - unlike any Amelia has ever encountered - will chart a course that puts her beloved family directly in the path of destruction.

Review by riverwillow
WWI is over and the extended Emerson-Peabody clan, including the adopted and illegitimate members, friends and assorted cats have assembled in Egypt for the excavation season. Inevitably it doesn't take long before there's a theft and the family inexorably gets drawn into the investigation. During the course of the investigations the past becomes inextricably entwined in the present and may well hold the key to the series of mysterious and seemingly random series of events surrounding the family. Another superb read from cover to cover, the last few lines of the book left me laughing out loud and desperate for me. Wonderful.
