    I am a trucker and often listen to audios on my long hauls across country. I especially enjoy mysteries that will keep me awake.

    "Great Mystery for Those who Love Tales about Egypt"

    This mystery, the first in the Ardis Cole series, centers around the legend of Queen Hatshepsut, Egypt's only woman pharaoh. A tomb has been discovered that is believed to be the burial place of the queen's lover, Senmut. When archeologist Ardis Cole takes over the project, she is threatened by unknown rivals who compete for a hidden treasure.

    The story is both interesting and informative. In addition to an exciting mystery, it gives the reader much more, with a larger-than-life storyline and strong characterization. I enjoyed it so much I intend to read more books in the series.

    Story
    "Utterly predictable"

    The story was utterly predictable and there was very little character development. Despite the what the blurb says, Ardis Cole is not Indiana Jones. The narrator was just as dull the story and the recording quality was very poor. I usually download at least 2 books in a new series, but I didn't this time and I'm so glad I didn't waste money or credits.

    "Oh My!"
    What was most disappointing about Loretta Jackson and Vickie Britton ’s story?

    The authors set this in present day Egypt but failed to note that there is a very nice modern bridge between Luxor and the Valley of the Kings. The ferries are gone! As for the train, I am not sure where that came from. All in all very disappointing. Too many errors which made the reading an irritant and not fun.


    What didn’t you like about Stephanie Brush’s performance?

    Everything.Stephanie Bush did not do her homework. Her pronounciation of words was very poor. She could have found out how to pronounce different Egyptian words without too much trouble.

    Story
    "Dumbest Archeologist in Literature"

    Ardis Cole must be the dumbest archeologist and the most naive traveller in the world. The authors have done a disservice to the image of archeologists with their portrayal of an
    archeologist who follows none of the protocols of the field and who constantly is put in positions that threaten her life. The plot is unbelievable, the characters shallow and the history questionable. Save your points and don't buy this book or others in the series.
