Elizabeth Peters fans rejoice! Her latest novel NIGHT TRAIN TO MEMPHIS marks the much anticipated return of Dr. Vicky Bliss, assistant curator of the National Museum in Munich and sometime lover of international art thief, Sir John Smythe.

Vicky is still trying to figure out her unique relationship with Sir John. But when she receives an offer from a German Intelligence Agency, she can't refuse. A major heist of Egyptian antiquities is in the works, and they want Vicky to be their inside operative on a luxury Nile cruise to discover the plot's ringleaders.

Half fearing John might be connected to the plot, Vicky joins the cruise with some trepidation. Her worst nightmares are confirmed when, upon her arrival, Vicky is confronted not only by John "Tregarth," but by his lovely new bride, Mary. Hurt and angry, Vicky vows to stop the nefarious plot no matter what. But are things really as they seem?

When Vicky's cabin steward is murdered, the stakes rise dramatically. The unexpected appearance of Vicky's boss and friend Herr Doktor Schmidt only complicates matters further. Who is really behind the sinister plot, and why does everyone on the cruise seem to be hiding something?
