    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.

    Overall

    Depending on who you chose to listen to for your first Amelia Peabody book is who you would prefer. Some say that Susan O’Malley is better than Barbara Rosenblatt or vise versa. If you are used to listening to Susan rather than Barbara; Barbara may sound too animated. If you are used to Barbara; Susan may sound boring and very monotone.

    If you have never heard any of the Amelia Peabody Series, I strongly suggest listening to Barbara Roseblatt’s rendition. At first, it may be a little hard to get the British accent and tone; but soon you can visually see the characters. While Susan O’Mally rendition is very monotonous and to the point; not allowing the characters to develop; which may disinterest you in the book altogether.

    Choose wisely…

    I gave the book at on star due to Narraration... Barbara rock's...
