THE MUMMY CASE by Elizabeth Peters (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“Amelia Peabody Emerson, archaeologist extraordinaire, and arguably the most potent female force to hit Egypt since Cleopatra, is digging again!” (Philadelphia Inquirer)
When an antiquities dealer is murdered in his Cairo shop, Amelia follows up on a mysterious scrap of papyrus, a missing mummy case, and a few suspicious characters. But the digging turns truly dangerous when she looks for answers in an ancient tomb—one that could become her grave.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie®-nominated narrator Susan O’Malley. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“[Elizabeth Peters] scores again with a riotously witty, tense, and cunningly constructed tale.” (Publishers Weekly)

RATING: Suitable for adults and young adults who enjoy a good mystery novel with an Egyptian flair, or who are already fans of Peters’ best-selling series.
The irascible husband of Victorian Egyptologist Amelia Peabody has been denied permission to dig at the pyramids of Dahshoor and instead is awarded the “pyramids” of Mazghunah: countless mounds of rubble in the midst of nowhere. Nothing in this barren spot seems worthy of interest—until an antiquities dealer is murdered in his Cairo shop. Then when a sinister Egyptian spotted at the crime scene turns up in Mazghunah, Amelia can’t resist following his trail. There’s a mysterious scrap of papyrus and a missing mummy case to investigate. But the digging turns truly dangerous when Amelia and Emerson look for answers in an ancient tomb—one that could become their grave.
