    Undeterred by world war and enemy submarines, Amelia Peabody, grandmaster Elizabeth Peters' indomitable archaeologist-sleuth, once again sets sail for Egypt, where ghosts of an ancient past and specters of a present-day evil hover silently over an inscrutable land.

    Overall

    Since I couldn't get this book, or the next two, in unabridged format, I read them rather than compromising (even though I love Barbara Rosenblat's narration and think she adds a lot to the books), but I decided to give this one a chance, just to see if abridging ruined it. It did. The abridged version left out so much of what I like about the series that I recorded it, and the next two books, for a friend who likes the series but has a very long commute and no time to read.

    If Audible were to get these three books in unabridged format, I'd buy them, even though I've already read them.
