Publisher's Summary

A RUMOR OF RICHES. A MAZE OF MURDER. AND THE WORLD’S MOST DANGEROUS, SOUGHT-AFTER PRIZE.
Nina Wilde and Eddie Chase possess extraordinary pieces of an ancient puzzle that leads them from Singapore to the jungles of South America. Inside a storm of political and drug warfare, Nina is getting close to one of history’s greatest secrets: the mythical golden city of El Dorado. As one discovery unveils another, Nina realizes that a legendary Incan leader made a deal with his Spanish captors - and hid forever the real El Dorado. Now, Nina and Eddie face a maze of death traps and betrayals, including one that reaches into Eddie’s past in Afghanistan, even into his own family in England. Behind a waterfall in Peru is an unfound wonder of the world. And to get there, Nina and Eddie may have to sacrifice everything: their friends, their love for one another, even their lives.

Different narrator!

I've been listening to this series for some time now and I have become very accustomed to the wonderful work and voices of Gildart Jackson. I loved being able to pick out all the individual voices and really hear the emotions of the characters (especially the cheerful humor of Eddie Chase).

After several books into the series, the narrator has been switched to Robin Sachs and it's driving me crazy! Not only are several of the voices fairly similar to others, but i can't concentrate on the story when I hear a well known character speak with someone else's voice. It's like having a friend you've known forever and one day he talks with a different voice entirely! He has the same words and actions, but different inflection, tone, accent and even formant! It really throws you in a loop!

Loved the story but ......

Where does Empire of Gold rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

One of the best stories I have istened to. All of the Andy McDermott books keep me entertained with bigger than life characters and adventure.

How could the performance have been better?

The one problem I had with this book was the narration, it was slow and all the characters were too similar. I can't figure out why they changed narrators. I had to actually spped up the playback on my iPod just to make the words flow a little better.

Any additional comments?

The entire series of books with Eddie Chase and Nina Wilde are very fun to listen to. Eddie Chase kind of reminds me of Dirk Pitt with a serious chip on his shoulder.
