“A royal treat….Welcome back, Vicky Bliss!...For readers new to Vicky’s sassy and distinctively smart stories, The Laughter of Dead Kings will mark the start of a beautiful friendship.”
New York Times bestselling Grand Master Elizabeth Peters—author of the thrilling fictional exploits of archaeologist Amelia Peabody in the Land of the Pharaohs—brings back beautiful, brainy art expert and sometime sleuth Vicky Bliss for one last adventure in The Laughter of Dead Kings. The incomparable Peters sends Vicky and her colorful entourage racing across modern-day Egypt to investigate the brazen theft of one the ancient desert land’s most priceless treasures. Smart, funny, evocative, and suspenseful, The Laughter of Dead Kings is a fond and fitting farewell to the ever-delightful Vicky…and a superior mystery fit for a King Tutankhamen.

Laughter of Dead Kings
I loved the Amelia Peabody series but this book is sure no Amelia. They dash from here to there while making witty remarks to each other. Too light and cutesy. I have learned nothing new about Egypt as I did with the Amelia books.
Colleen a loyal reader
I read the Amelia Peabody series first and fell madly in love with the characters. I have just read the Laughter of the Kings in the Vicky Bliss series and feel that I will enjoy this series and the connections to the Emerson. The writing is so clear that images can form in the mind that I feel as if I am there looking across time.
