    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!"
    "Oh No! Downloaded Wrong Narrator!!!!"
    Overall

    I LOVED the first book, but it was narrated by Barbara Ronsenblat. Susan O'malley sounds like a school-child asked to read in class compared to Ronenblat. She is so monotone that my mind wanders while listening and find I can't get interested. I well never download another narrated by her again! (sorry susan).

    Master of suspense James Patterson continues the Women's Murder Club series with this nail-biter of a sequel to 1st to Die. Four women - a police detective, an assistant D.A., a journalist, and a medical examiner - combine their efforts, risking everything, to catch a serial killer. "As with Patterson's best novels," Booklist says, "the surprises keep coming until the final pages."

    Jean says: "Painful pastime"
    "What are they thinking?"
    Overall

    Why don't producers of audio books make the narrators audition before signing contracts? I agree with the reviewer who said it was the worst narration ever. If the producers of these books aren't familiar with the work of narrators like Barbara Rosenblatt and Jim Dale, they should not be in the business. I hate wasting my money on books that could be better narrated by a third grader. The story is OK but not as good as the first. It would have been more enjoyable if there had been some decent narration. Is this woman really an actress? Did she listen to her own narration? It boggles the mind.

  • Night Train to Memphis: The Fifth Vicky Bliss Mystery

    Story
    (100)

    While on an all-expenses-paid cruise down the Nile, Vicky takes on a new case involving a plot to rob the Egyptian museum. With Sir John Smythe, reformed jewel thief and Vicky's lover, the prime suspect, she prepares for shipboard romance and a dash of intrigue.

    Judith says: "Vicky's Egypt trip is fun for Amelia fans"
    "the best for last"
    Overall

    This was the best of the Vicky Bliss series. I was very sad to discover it was also the last. I enjoyed Amelia Peabody very much, but I found myself more attached to Vicky. I wish there were more. If you haven't listened to the Barbara Rosenblat narrations, you are doing yourself a great injustice. The first time you hear Vicky Bliss you won't believe it is the same person who narrates the Amelia Peabody series. The woman deserves accolades and awards for both the Amelia Peabody and Vicky Bliss series.
