Don't miss the rest of the Amelia Peabody series.

"Bursting with surprises, a sheer delight" (Publishers Weekly)
"Peters really knows how to spin romance and adventure into a mystery." (Philadelphia Enquirer)
These books are told in the first person by Amerlia Peabody who is English. Having the book read by Susan O'Malley in her flat American voice is a mistake of the first order.
I downloaded this version by mistake and I have to abandon it early on. Now I will bite the bullet and pay more to get the Barbara Rosenblatt version.
I should have read the description better, if I had I would not have downloaded it. In this case the narrator is just as important as the author.
I accidentally got this one instead of Barbara Rosenblat and was appalled. I couldn't even get through an hour of this monotonous American voice. It is so atonal that one cannot discern the difference between the characters--which makes getting through even a half-hour more frustrating than entertaining or relaxing. What a waste of a credit!
I'm sorry, but this narrator can not be compared to Barbara Rosenblat. I really did try to listen to Susan O'Malley , but stopped after the first couple of chapters! The book itself is terrific and I'm glad I can hear the version read by Rosenblat.
