December 12: Crocodile on the Sandbank (Amelia Peabody book 1) by Elizabeth Peters
Amelia Peabody, an indomitable product of the Victorian age, embarks on her debut Egyptian adventure armed with unshakable self-confidence, a journal to record her thoughts, and, of course, a sturdy umbrella. Faced with strange visitations, suspicious accidents, and a botched kidnapping, Amelia’s first Egyptian trip may also be her last.

January 9: The Visitors by Sally Beauman
Based on a true story of discovery, The Visitors is New York Times bestselling author Sally Beauman’s brilliant recreation of the hunt for Tutankhamun’s tomb in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings — a dazzling blend of fact and fiction that brings to life a lost world of exploration, adventure, and danger, and the audacious men willing to sacrifice everything to find a lost treasure.

An enthralling literary debut that evokes one of the most momentous events in history, the birth of printing in medieval Germany — a story of invention, intrigue, and betrayal, rich in atmosphere and historical detail, told through the lives of the three men who made it possible.
