Gordon Griffin expertly handles the many complexities of this entertaining story of murder. Set in Karnak, Egypt, the story focuses on Inspector Yusuf Khalifa, who is called in to investigate the death of Piet Jansen, a hotel owner and amateur archaeologist. When Khalifa suspects that Jansen's death is tied to a long ago murder, he is told to stop his investigation. He continues, of course, and all heck breaks loose. Griffin adeptly shades characters with personality and offers subtle versions of the international cast's many accents. He also manages to tone down the occasionally overwrought language, making this a thoroughly enjoyable and suspenseful listen. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 07/ JAN 08]
