Peter "Mad Max" Maxwell is a high school history teacher; his girlfriend is a detective sergeant. They solve crimes together in this series of humorous murder mysteries. In this book Mad Max takes his high school class to a local archaeological dig, only to find a recent murder victim rather than ancient bones. Peter Wickham's "Mad Max" voice is perfect. It's the kind that high school students trust, all the while it engenders doubt in most adults. Wickham is unusually skilled at creating a range of believable female voices, including teenaged girls who are no more screechy than in real life. He also handles the madcap plot twists and suspense with aplomb. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
