Earphones Award Winner

Mystery & Suspense • 15.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1991

Dear listener, put your modern-day stressors aside, step into 1907, and spend unfettered hours with the incomparable Barbara Rosenblat. In Elizabeth Peters’s sixth delicious Peabody–Emerson adventure, word arrives that archaeologist Willoughby Forth and his young bride, who both disappeared in the Egyptian desert 14 years earlier, may still be alive. Emerson, “the greatest Egyptologist of this or any age”; his irrepressible wife, Peabody, of the “rampageous imagination”; and their terrifyingly verbal 10-year-old son, Ramses, set out to find the Forths and, instead, find themselves in dire peril. Rosenblat creates charming, clever characters of form and substance. Their conversation is droll, stimulating, and, for the overburdened listener, absolutely therapeutic. Her range of voices is one of the wonders of the universe. It doesn’t get better than Barbara Rosenblat. S.J.H.
