Publisher's Summary

It's 1910, and archaeologist Amelia Peabody heads for Palenstine hoping to prevent an English adventurer called Morely from causing damage during his search for the vanished treasures of the Temple in Jerusalem.
The War Office fears increasing German influence in Palenstine and insists Morley is working for German intelligence.
In the meantime, her son Ramses is working on a dig at Samaria where he encounters a female German archaeologist, and a mysterious man of unknown nationality and unknown past.
Ramses' curiosity leads him to a startling discovery about the pair.
He must pass the information on to his parents in Jerusalem but can he get there alive?

I was delighted to find an Amelia Peabody I hadn't even read, let alone heard, but I was really disappointed with this. I'm afraid it's not amongst Elizabeth Peters best efforts, but even worse the narrator wasn't Barbara Rosenblat.

The voice is pleasant, but I kept hearing another narrative alongside it, much richer more varied and better modulated. It just wasn't Amelia, it wasn't Emerson and it wasn't Ramses. It wasn't even Neferet, who isn't my favourite character.

What can I say? Though it was nice to fill in one of the missing years I was really disappointed! Please Audible, find a few more Amelias, - with the 'right' narrator

If you have listened to any other Amelia Peabody don't buy this one,you will be disappointed.I couldn't finish it,the narrator completely destroyed the book by her interpretation of the characters.It should have had a highlighted warning telling listeners it was not Barbara Rosenblat.
