    I love all the Amelia Peabody mysteries and this one was no exception. The reader is fantastic, one of the best by far! The only thing keeping this from five stars is that I think the abridgement kept out a few details that would've explained a bit more of the story.

    If you like Elizabeth Peters, this one won't disappoint. If you're not familiar with her, you might want to start with some of her earlier books to get acquainted with her characters earlier in their lives. Always fun and entertaining and love the English accents!!
