I love this series about Amelia Peabody and her quirky family of Egyptologists. It is one of my favorite "listening in the car" books. Barbara Rosenblat is the perfect narrator. She captures all the different voices and personalilties wonderfully.
This is an abridged version of the book. No where in the description of this audio book was that stated. I was most disappointed.
An Amelia Peabody mystery:
Writing style is a bit stilted, but characters are well-developed, plot picks up speed and carries you along, and there are twists and turns along the way. A good light read.
From the bookcover: "A Great War has ended, but evil still casts a long shadow over a violence-scarred land. One woman - an adventurer and archaeologist with a brilliant mind - must now confront a dreadful adversary more fiendish and formidable than any she has ever encountered. But by doing so, she may be feeding the flames of a devastating firestorm that threatens the fragile lives of the tender and innocent."
Further adventures of Amelia Peabody, archaeologist and her family.
Suspense and mystery in the Archaeology world. An Indiana Jones type adventure.
