The Deeds of the Disturber (Amelia Peabody, Book 5)

The Deeds of the Disturber - Elizabeth Peters This London romp picks up right after Lion in the Valley. Back from Egypt, the Emerson find themselves involved in an mummy malediction scandal. Some good parts, some beloved faces return (Kevin O'Connell), some new faces, I love Garety, the temporary butler. Not enough Ramses in this one, but he does save them all in the end. So a little more than 3 stars for the characters not really for the dull who is the mad aristocrat killing people in the name of the mummy.
