Mystery novelist Elizabeth Peters and actress Samantha Eggar make for an amazing combination in the latest mishaps of Egyptologist Amelia Peabody and company. In the style of Agatha Christie, Peters introduces (or returns the reader to) Egypt's imposing pyramids, full of shadowy characters and dark tunnels. Eggar's performance will make listeners want to brush the sand from their hair as her stuffy English accent drops the listener into Peabody's shoes. Whether portraying Peabody herself, her blowhard husband or her lovelorn son, Eggar masters each character. A fantastic story and a great performance make for delightful listening that's more like an old-time radio mystery than another whodunit. H.L.S. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
