    Even on leave from the FBI, Ana can’t kick old habits: when she witnesses a drive-by shooting at an Italian restaurant in London, she helps the injured and gives testimony to the police. Still, it comes as a shock when, soon after, the Bureau contacts her—not because they want her to investigate the shooting, but because they want her to investigate the half sister she never knew she had, Cecilia, who lives in Siena and is married to Nicosa, a coffee mogul with some suspicious connections.

    Overall

    I can't believe I actually paid hard-earned money for this pitiful book.

    From the made-for-TV silly plot, to the one-dimensional characters, to the snotty narration, I just gave up halfway through. I really don't need to gawk at expensive Italian furnishings and clothing like some American junior year abroad wannabe.

    Why didn't the woeful narrator Ms. Lovejoy even consult with an Italian speaker before she punted her way through the horrible accent she affects? Hey, "Giovanni" is not pronounced "gee-oh-vanni," but "joe-vanni." And so it goes...on and on.

    I give up. This is by far my worst purchase ever from audible...and there have been a few other stinkers along the way.

  • 1177 B.C.: The Year Civilization Collapsed

    In 1177 B.C., marauding groups known only as the "Sea Peoples" invaded Egypt. The pharaoh’s army and navy managed to defeat them, but the victory so weakened Egypt that it soon slid into decline, as did most of the surrounding civilizations. After centuries of brilliance, the civilized world of the Bronze Age came to an abrupt and cataclysmic end. Kingdoms fell like dominoes over the course of just a few decades. No more Minoans or Mycenaeans. No more Trojans, Hittites, or Babylonians.

    Story

    It's hard to tick off a history buff, but this one brought back recurring nightmares from that Ancient History course. Egyptians, Minoans and Hittites were the easy ones…

    This should never have been an audio book--especially with the terrible narrator and his golly-gee intonations. I plowed on courageously through half the book, then just chucked it.

    A waste of time and money for me.
