I have read all Elizabeth Peter's Amelia Peabody books and enjoyed them immensely for their Egyptological background, the mysteries and the eccentricity of the main characters. This book includes a bit of angst into things with a threat to Amelia and Emerson's relationship. Despite the fact that Amelia is written as robust and opinionated - she is quite touching here as she struggles with her fears. Having read the books I wasn't sure about listening to them, but Barbara Rosenblat does an extraordinary job at narration here. Beautifully distinct voices and the wry and absurd humour of the book comes through beautifully. Really enjoyed this!

This absolutely sparkles with wit and fun. This is the pinnacle of author-narrator collaboration, and a title you'll enjoy listening to more than once.

Ms. Rosenblatt is one of my favorite narrators, and her approach to Amelia Peabody Emerson is spot-on in my opinion. Having listened to her with the Nevada Barr mysteries, I thought she was American yet it seems her British accent is perfect too. Go figure!
Anyhoo, of the Amelia Peabody series, this is my favorite. The plot twists make it fresh and exciting, and the banter of all characters is hilarious. A very fun listen.
