    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.

    "Abridged just too bad"
    Overall

    I have enjoyed the Elizabeth Peabody books on Audible but am so dissappointed to get to the end of the series and find only abridged versions. Barbara Rosenblatt is amazing as always but the strory had big chunks missing. I read the book (the paper book) after listening because I felt a bit lost. Try and add the unabridged if they make them. Still worth listening to but only about half the book.

    When CIA "fixer" Micah Dalton's friend and mentor turns up dead, he's put on a collision course with a killer who has a penchant for intricate knife-work and Native American mysticism, a sadist who is killing ex-CIA agents. The victims are hard-nosed field men whose only link to one another seems to be a global surveillance operation called Echelon. The murders appear to be acts of retribution. But for what?

    Carmela08 says: "Excellent spy tale"
    "Gripping"
    Overall

    This is the only work I have read by this author. It was excellent. He combines humor, suspense, and espionage to weave together a gripping story. The story moves from Italy, to London, to the U.S. and is told from the viewpoint of a cynical CIA agent. The characters have depth, aren't perfect, and the bad-guy is really scary. My only negative comment is that it's too graphic for my taste. Despite that, I would still recommend it. It held my interest and kept me listening.

    When Walter Hartright encounters the "solitary figure of a woman, dressed from head to foot in white garments" on a lonely road, he is haunted by her. He falls in love with his employer's niece, Laura, because she resembles the mysterious woman. Laura, however, is betrothed to the evil Sir Percival, who wishes to marry her for her money. The woman in white, it turns out, is Anne Catherick, who was confined in an asylum by the evil Sir Percival because she knew a devastating secret about him.

    Overall

    I have only recently discovered Wilkie Collins and have been delighted both with this title and the Moonstone. I have long enjoyed historical fiction, but when you find an author who is actually writing about the time period in which they lived (such as Dickens, Austen, & Collins) it makes it all the more enjoyable. Collins does an excellent job of character development - we want to know what happens to these folks - these mysteries are a delight to read.

    Overall

    I enjoyed the story more than the writing. The premise of a society based on equality was interesting and the author does a good job of making you believe in the rules of that society. The use of modern day jargon mixed with a fantasy setting was distracting. It is still worth a listen.
