Synopsis: 'Vicky and her longtime lover John Tregarth, formerly known as high-end thief Sir John Smythe, are dragged into the search for the stolen mummy by their Egyptian friend Feisal, who’s desperate to recover it. Well-known for his expertise in bold thefts, John is high on everyone’s list of suspects. Even Vicky and her wealthy, eccentric boss Schmidt can’t be certain he isn’t somehow involved. Their efforts to prove John innocent take them to London, Italy and eventually Egypt’s Valley of the Kings, as both thieves and law-enforcement agents eagerly trail them. When the tomb keeper, the only other person who knew about the theft, is found murdered, the sleuths are forced to take Feisal’s cousin Dr. Khifaya, secretary general in charge of antiquities, into their confidence. Soon a ransom note and one of Tut’s hands arrive for Khifaya, whose efforts to deal with the situation on his own are doomed to failure. As Vicky and Schmidt hatch scheme after scheme to recover the mummy, John calmly conducts his own investigation, often disappearing for long periods of time. Despite all the madcap misadventures, good eventually triumphs.'
Review: What fun! Adventures in the land of the pharaohs with this character are always fun. Glad to see Schmidt in the heat of the action. Really sorry that this is one of Elizabeth Peters's last books. ( )

Review: The Laughter of Dead Kings by Elizabeth Peters. 01/22/2018

The effect Peters gives her readers is like a 1930’s comedy of manners, with a very old-fashioned plot. What is suppose to be a contemporary adventure becomes quite detached
and the characters speak in an elaborate, archaic, torturously witty fashion. I have noticed that Elizabeth Peters writing style is memorizing because of the characters she creates that gives the story a witty flow.

In this book she brings back Vicky Bliss and her British lover Sir John Smythe who is a former art thief who says he is entirely reformed. The plot revolves around recovering the body of King Tut which was stolen from his tomb and some people think a British person conned his way past a security guard and escapes into the desert with the historic relic but some others in authority are placing the blame on Sir John Smythe.

Vicky is a current assistant curator of Munich’s National Museum and Sir John searches through various exotic areas in rescue of King Tut’s remains. Vicky knows that there are a rumor going around that Sir John is the culprit who stole the Mummy from the tomb in the Valley of Kings pyramid. However, the Egyptian authorities and the Interpol are claiming they have evidence and believe strongly Sir John Smythe is the thief. Vicky Bliss is determined to prove them wrong.

These two characters, Vicky and Sir John are only dating but they make a great couple. They brought humor to the book. Peters has a way to fully develop her main characters.

It's good to be back among my old friends Vicky, John and the ever adorable Schmidt (who is particularly awesome in this book). If you are looking for a mystery series that is just plain fun, do give Peters' Vicky Bliss series a go. ( )
