Elizabeth Peters takes a slightly different direction in her sixth book and pays homage to Sir Henry Rider Haggard. Thus The Last Camel Died at Noon (you have to love that title!) is a romantic adventure in the style of King Solomon's Mines.

Elizabeth Peters takes a slightly different direction in her sixth book and pays homage to Sir Henry Rider Haggard. It is great! Of course we are still treated to Amelia's personal opinions of her actions which I always feel are very much her own view and maybe not based in reality! The relationship between the Emersons is as delightful as ever as is their constantly entertaining repa Elizabeth Peters takes a slightly different direction in her sixth book and.

Months before, back in cool, green England, Viscount Blacktower had approached them to find his son and his son's new bride, who have been missing in war-torn Sudan for over a decade. If Indiana Jones were female, a wife and mother who lived in Victorian times, he would be Amelia Peabody Emerson, an archeologist whose extraordinary adventures are guaranteed entertainment. A writer so popular that the public library has to keep her books under lock and ke.

Conditions, I might add, that are uncharacteristic of camels alive or moribund. Those conditions are also uncharacteristic of Emerson.

Narrated by Susan O’Malley. Books related to The Last Camel Died at Noon.

The Last Camel Died at Noon is the sixth in a series of historical mystery novels, written by Elizabeth Peters and featuring fictional sleuth and archaeologist Amelia Peabody. Although most of the Amelia Peabody series are fairly "hardboiled" historical detective stories, Last Camel is an exception and satirizes adventure novels in the tradition of Henry Rider Haggard. The title of this book is identical to the first sentence of the 1981 thriller The Key to Rebecca by Ken Follett.

Bestselling author Elizabeth Peters brings back nineteenth-century Egyptologist Amelia Peabody and her entourage in this delicious caper that digs up mystery in the shadow of the pyramids. The last camel is dead, and Egyptologist Amelia Peabody, her dashing husband, Emerson, and her precocious son, Ramses, are in dire straits on the sun-scorched desert sands. Months before, back in cool, green England, Viscount Blacktower had approached them to find his son and his son's new bride, who have been missing in war-torn Sudan for over a decade. An enigmatic message scrawled on papyrus and a cryptic map had been delivered to Blacktower, awakening his hope that the couple was still alive. Neither Amelia nor Emerson believes the message is authentic, but the treasure map proves an irresistible temptation. Now, deep in Nubia's vast wasteland, they discover too late how much treachery is afoot (and on camelback), and survival depends on Amelia's solving a mystery as old as ancient Egypt and as timeless as greed and revenge.

This is the book that introduces Nefret at 13 years old. Her rescue from a living ancient civilization and the wonders and perils there in. I cannot even begin to explain this story without giving away much of the fun except that the Emerson family never fails to deliver and they are exactly what you expect them to be, delightful, loving, intelligent, over confident and, as always, smack in he middle and up to their necks in the worst trouble they can possibly find, bearing all of with good sense, British aplomb and the firm belief that they have been in worse situations before so why should they fail here?

Having read the entire Peabody series over the years, I am thoroughly enjoying re-acquainting myself with the characters and the history involved this extraordinary cast of characters. You find quite a few inconsistencies as you read the books back-to-back, but they are fun and informative, if you enjoy Egyptology. I have been eagerly awaiting a final book for the past couple of years that wraps up the family sage, as it were, but I read that Ms Peters (Dr Mertz) passed away a while back. There is a new book coming out in the not-too-distant future that I hope will permit closure for the many fans of Amelia and Emerson's adventures. Good reading for any and all.

I love the Amelia Peabody series. Amelia is an indomitable heroine. She is highly opinionated, super-confident, fearless, loyal, reckless, not particularly self-aware, and convinced that she is right almost all of the time, which she often is. Her moral position is steadfast and her devotion to her husband, the greatest archeologist of this or any age, is unwavering. We see their marriage develop and feel a part of this amazingly entertaining family. As her son grows, the romance and adventures increase. There is love, intrigue, mystery, history, and a sense of being a part of this marvelous family as they move through the late 1800's and early twentieth century touching upon trends and issues of the times. Each book stands alone, but reading or listening to them in order adds to the enjoyment. Barabara Rosenblatt is the best reader. She brings each character to life with appropriate accents with bits of Arabic and German, as well. Listening to her is a treat! I have been trying to acquire all of the books on CD and have almost succeeded.

Another Success for Elizabeth Peters! I love these books - nothing beats the spirited, smart and capable Amelia Peabody. Her voice is so entertaining and fun, making this series one of the best reads out there for mystery fans.
This tale brings breaks from some of the usual formulas, which makes it more suspenseful. Since most of the story takes place away from the usual Egypt, it makes the twists and turns of this narrative even more interesting to read. There is nothing like a near death experience and finding a lost civilization to keep Amelia on her toes! Definitely a great read in the series.

Another season for the archaeologists in another mystery to solve it. Have you seen all the twists and turns on this when yet? Keep on reading sometimes these seem to start just a little slowly but they build and build to a definite climax. Happy reading

I love this series, but this book was just okay. It felt more like an adventure novel than a mystery, and I never really got into the story. I was excited to see Nefret though, because I've read some of the later books in the series and have been looking forward to her first appearance.

I also felt like this book had a slightly more "us vs them" feel than most of these books, and some of the comments about the natives bothered me a bit.

Every book in this Elizabeth Peters is readable over and over. they are funny, sexy, argumentative, strong, they never hide from a stoush. this is my third read and any time i need a holiday i read these books without ever leaving my aircon. i can smell egypt, see the country, the people and the pyramids. this year i created pyramids as gifts for my family and friends to give them a sense of well being and the all seeing eye of Horus.

Another fun installment in the Amelia Peabody series. The Emerson family is at it again...solving mysteries and getting into trouble. The dialogue between characters is smart, entertaining, and witty. This adventure involves missing persons, dying camels, the discovery of a new and isolated culture and political unrest. Entertaining and enjoyable read.
