The Mummy Case is by Elizabeth Peters. The third book in the Amelia Peabody Mystery series. Amelia and Emerson are back in Egypt, this time with their young son, Ramses. Denied permission to dig at Dahshoor, they are resigned to excavating a mound of junk in the middle of nowhere. Nothing of interest, until an antiquities dealer is murdered and a mummy case is stolen. Amelia is now in full mystery solving mode. Ramses steals the show in this novel. He is wonderfully precocious and absolutely entertaining. Another amazing mystery in a suspenseful, yet funny series. A must read series for all Agatha Christie lovers.
