Lord of the Silent (An Amelia Peabody Mystery, #13)Lord of the Silent by Elizabeth Peters
Series: Amelia Peabody, 13
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thirteenth in the Amelia Peabody historical mystery series that revolves around Emerson’s commanding wife, Amelia.

I’m starting to wonder if I enjoyed this particular story for itself or because I am so invested in the characters…

Lord of the Silent revolves around Ramses and Nefret this time with Emerson and Amelia as the supporting cast as they reel Sethos into the family with the intention of discovering who is taking over the empty role of the Master. While Emerson is deprived of pursuing his beloved digging, he does manage to triumph, archaeologically speaking, in the end.
