It’s a case of controlling parents and arranged marriages with twist after curse after betrayal for Aiden Connolly and Theodora O’Toole, as Kennedy Bennett does her best to survive attacks and kidnappings and salvage a quartet of cursed paintings.
He’s old money, and he wants Kennedy to provide all the furniture, antique mind you, for a too-modern office into an employee lounge that can double as a place to entertain clients. Not. It’s a mission of acquisition that will, hopefully, find Kennedy’s kidnapped sisters. And hope the gods don’t interfere.
The promise of an undisturbed royal tomb vies with evils that include the Hippopotamus Man — and an irresistible temptation for art thieves, jealous colleagues, looters, the press, and countless other evil-doers. As Ramses and Nefret rub elbows with thieves and thugs, Peabody finds herself faced with a surprising new villain who is every bit as clever and resourceful as the intrepid Amelia herself.
A murder in Luxor sparks Peabody’s interest. When the same stranger shows up at their barren dig, both Emersons start digging for answers in an ancient tomb, events take a darker and deadlier turn — and there may be no surviving the very modern terrors their efforts reveal.
Nothing like a murder to whet Amelia’s appetite, and when it includes a trip to Egypt—after five long years away, Emerson can be counted on to pack up.
Three short stories from Kelley Armstrong, Jeaniene Frost, and Melissa Marr reflecting some fantastical events when the girls have a Girls’ Night Out with too many bodies to count.
A naked Rick LaFleur calls Nell for help. But with a black magic circle with a sacrificed cat near him and no memory, Rick is no help.
