When attractive American Jacqueline Kirby is invited to an English country mansion for a weekend costume affair, she expects only one mystery. Since the hosts and guests are all fanatic devotees of King Richard III, they hope to clear his name of the 500-year-old accusation that he killed the little princes in the Tower of London. Jacqueline is amused by the group's eccentricities until history begins to repeat itself.

as a fan of the Stephanie Plum numbered series I find these little excursions with the same base characters highly enjoyable, the narrator does a fine job and as expected of Janet Evanovich it's a fun lite listen.

This was the first title I've listened to/read by this author and I found it quite enjoyable. It is darkly funny and not for the squemish. I can't look at my Ikea catalog with out laughing now.

Nevada Barr quickly attracted the attention of mystery fans when her first Anna Pigeon mystery, Track of the Cat, appeared. Now she immerses the intrepid park ranger in a perilous search that will take her far below the waters of Lake Superior. As Anna spends her days patrolling its shores, the surface of Lake Superior fills with tourists. In the depths below lie an ancient ship and the bones of its sailors.

I would definite recommend reading this series in order, 1st to Die, 2nd Chance, 3rd Degree then this one. And luckily Audible has them all. This is a nice addition to the series and kept my interest throughout. I enjoyed the narrator as well. Listened to them with friends on a car trip to Oklahoma....time sped by.

This is the first book I've read by Stuart Woods, and it was very good. I enjoyed the narrator tremendously. The story kept a good pace and I did not find any fault in the characterizations. I'd recommend this book. I just wish Audible had more UNABRIDGED books by him as I stay away from Abridged.

In her best-selling Amelia Peabody mysteries, author Elizabeth Peters has created an award-winning mixture of vivid archeological detail, finely-tuned suspense, and witty romance. This, the 12th Amelia Peabody mystery, opens in 1914. As the tides of war rise, Egypt is threatened by attacks. Espionage abounds, pulling in several members of the Peabody Emerson household even as they embark on a new archeological season.

The last camel is dead, and Egyptologist Amelia Peabody, her dashing husband, Emerson, and precocious son, Ramses, are in dire straits on the sun-scorched desert sands. Months before, back in cool, green England, Viscount Blacktower had approached them to find his son and his son's new bride, who have been missing in war-torn Sudan for over a decade. An enigmatic message scrawled on papyrus and a cryptic map had been delivered to Blacktower, awakening his hope that the couple was still alive.

I listened to "Crocodile on the Sandbank" narrated by Ms O'Malley and barely made it through, I found the narration extremely tedious and bland. I switched narrators to Ms Rosenblat and was immediately enchanted with books 2, 3, 4 & 5. I am disappointed that this sixth book in the series is not available from audible with Ms Rosenblat's narration, as I have had to endure a rather bland rendition to continue the series.
