Mystery & Suspense • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1985

This third novel in the Amelia Peabody series once again takes the listener to Egypt and its ancient ruins. Who better than author/Egyptologist Elizabeth Peters to concoct a turn-of-the-century mystery in which humor, romance, and an archaeological dig come together. Susan O'Malley's narration is adequate. Amelia and her husband, Emerson, investigate the death of an antiquities dealer and the theft of a mummy case. Their son, Ramses, collects his own amusing evidence. The scenes and pace of the novel are kept intact, but the narration noticeably lacks the ethnic accents that enliven these stories. B.J.L. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
