WARNING: do not read this novel if you plan to maintain any awe of Victorian archaeologists such as DeMorgan, Petrie, Wilbour, or Wallis Budge. After reading this book, every time you see a mention of DeMorgan's hallowed name in a museum or article, you will start giggling about his pathetically eager desire (at least, that portrayed in this novel) to be portrayed heroically in the Illustrated London Times:

(I think the woman in the front might be Amelia herself.)
Petrie's illustrious name will conjure the man's tendency to eat canned peas after they had been left half-eaten, stewing and mouldering in the Egyptian sun. Wilbour will always be the amiable "father of the beard," working hard to smooth away the ire of the snappish Reverend Sayce. And Budge...oh, don't get me started on Budge's antics. The worst (or best) of it? Almost all the stories are true, and all the characters, if perhaps a little larger than life, are accurately portrayed. If you read these novels, you'll end up feeling like you know the Victorian archaeologists, bizarre eccentricities and all. And you'll always envision Amelia Peabody Emerson, flanked by her belligerent husband and Machiavellian son, poking her parasol into every political and social bee's hive in the archaeological world.

The Mummy Case is one of my absolute favourite stories in the entire series. The gleeful combat between Amelia and Emerson is still in full force, only heightened by their simmering and ever-present romantic passion. But yet another element of entertainment and conflict has appeared on the scene: the young Walter ("Ramses") Emerson is finally accompanying his parents on a dig. Young Ramses is one of my absolute favourite characters in the series. He is, as his mother once put it, "catastrophically precocious," constantly jumping from one debacle to the next and always just managing to avoid the edicts of his mother via his positively Jesuitical reasoning. His terrifying prolixity, paired with his inability to pronounce certain diphthongs, makes his dialogue a constant source of entertainment. Last, there is his ever-present shadow, "da cat Bastet", to add an additional flair to the novel.
