    One of the best-loved of mystery writers weaves another tale of intrigue featuring Amelia Peabody and her archaeologist husband Radcliffe. This time the willful and witty duo must catch a murderer at an excavation of an ancient Egyptian tomb in Luxor.

    Mary A. says: "Great second read!"
    "Great Series-Wrong Narrator"
    Overall

    I am completely addicted to the Amelia Peabody series, but I believe a major factor is the absolutely brilliant reading and characterizations of Barbers Rosenblatt. I wanted to stay with the series so I tried this book and although I enjoyed the story it was not nearly as engaging with Ms. O'malley's narration. While pleasant enough to listen to, she just doesn't capture the essence of the characters like Ms. Rosenblatt. Her attempts at accents are, at times, ridiculous.

    Enjoy the series, but stick to the Rosenblatt narrations.
