Once again the indomitable Amelia Peabody, joined by husband and son, sets out to solve a mystery “wrapped” in Egyptology. Returned to England for academic and practical reasons, they fulfill their quest in the atmosphere of a Victorian Gothic novel. Barbara Rosenblat adeptly presents each character, individualizing them with varieties of speech, dialects, intonation and speaking patterns. All the while, she keeps a steady, narrative pace. The many voices are just part of her mastery. A seemingly endless repertoire of emotions enhances her performance and transforms the novel into live entertainment. P.A.J.
