In CHILDREN OF THE STORM, the fifteenth in the Amelia Peabody mystery series, the preeminent Barbara Rosenblat juggles an array of characters who speak American English, upper-class British English, and English as spoken by Arabic and Urdu characters. In their archaeological exploits, Peabody and her dashing husband, Emerson, unearth a valuable treasure being fought over by several parties. In the high- stakes fracas that arises after the theft of a bracelet of inestimable value, several characters disappear, along with a trusted servant; Amelia's daughter- in-law; her son, Ramses; and Emerson himself. Rosenblat conveys the vigor with which Peabody attempts to establish order in these puzzle pieces of thievery, family abuse, cheating, dissembling, and lying in post WWI Egypt. M.D.H.
