I'm an Amelia Peabody junky but I must say that listening to this one read by Susan O'Malley is just plain painful. It's like listenting to a really bad cover of your favorite song - you just want to scream "Stop! You're doing it all wrong!" I think from now on I'll skip any books that aren't available with Barbara Rosenblat as the narrator and read the book the old-fashioned way, just so I don't have to endure listening to another of Susan O'Malley's readings. I'm sure she's well suited to other stories, but to hear Ameila Peabody without a well-bred British accent is just wrong. I'm not sure how the producer could even imaging doing the story without the accents - it just doesn't make any sense. I won't make this mistake again and I hope you don't either! Barbara Rosenblat IS Amelia Peabody!
I generally enjoy Flynn's work and have read/listend to the entire series. This book however, was dull, boring and predictable. I'm very sorry I wasted a credit on it.
