    Things had never been quite the same at Latter End since Lois had taken over. Suddenly life seemed to be an endless succession of bitter family rows - which Lois, needless to say, invariably won. More than one person at Latter End found themselves stretched to the limit by Lois and her bullying, and it was only a matter of time before somebody snapped.

    This is well worth the listen because the characters are fascinating. Most interesting of all is Lois, who embodies all the worst in womankind and proves, definitively, that looks aren't everything. The skillfully draw portrayal of this wicked lady reveals a profond understanding of how personal corruption and evil can be hidden behind a beautiful facade.

    The last camel is dead, and Egyptologist Amelia Peabody, her dashing husband, Emerson, and precocious son, Ramses, are in dire straits on the sun-scorched desert sands. Months before, back in cool, green England, Viscount Blacktower had approached them to find his son and his son's new bride, who have been missing in war-torn Sudan for over a decade. An enigmatic message scrawled on papyrus and a cryptic map had been delivered to Blacktower, awakening his hope that the couple was still alive.

    Debra says: "Good Story, Painful Narration"
    "A different reader, alas."
    Overall

    After enjoying four previous novels read by Ms. Rosenblatt, this reading was not only unpleasant, it was intolerable. I tried to adjust to the new reader's non-english accent, raspy tone and flat inflection, but when she tried to voice Emerson I just gave up. Sadly disappointed and distressed, I wondered who had chosen someone without an appropriate English accent enlivened by Victorian overtones- a feature which made the other novels so authentic and energetic- to read this adventure. Sadly, I will never know how it comes out unless I read it in print.
