    The irascible husband of Victorian Egyptologist Amelia Peabody demonstrates again why he has been nicknamed "Father of Curses." Denied permission to dig at the pyramids of Dahshoor, Emerson is awarded instead the "pyramids" of Mazghunah: countless mounds of rubble in the midst of nowhere. Nothing in this barren spot seems worthy of interest - until an antiquities dealer is murdered in his Cairo shop.

    Overall

    This is a really fun series and I was so excited to see that Audible was beginning to carry it. However, this version has a vastly inferior narrator that will detract from the pleasure of the book for anyone who has already listened to the best. The author must have sold the rights to Blackstone early in her career before she could afford to be choosy about who would narrate. It will be worth your while to seek out this other narrator.
