A River in the Sky is the latest in a series of Amelia Peabody novels by Elizabeth Peters. In it the author weaves another exciting tale for her archaeologist heroine. This time, Amelia is off to foil a German plot and rescue her son, Ramses, who ultimately ends up rescuing her.

Like Ms. Peters' other books that follow this heroine, the novel is sprinkled with light-hearted banter about, and with, Amelia’s irreligious husband ... famous as the “Father of Curses.” This time the pair are off to Jerusalem instead of Egypt, where they manage to thwart a conspiracy and successfully solve the murders relating to it.

An enjoyable read, filled with Peters’ usual archaeologic intrigue, crime, murder and mystery.
