This is not at all what Amelia considers an atmosphere conductive to scientific discovery. Never one to deny others the benefit of her advice and example, the indomitable Victorian sets about bringing order to chaos and herself that much closer to danger. How Amelia triumphs over the forces of evil - and those who would stand between her and her beloved antiquities - make for a delightfully spirited adventure.

Great second read!
This is the second book in the Amelia Peabody series. I love the reader as her voice is how I pictured Amelia's to sound. It's light reading, but very entertaining! I love the Egyptian angle in these books as both Amelia and Emerson are Egyptian archaeologists. Give it a try!

Great Series-Wrong Narrator
I am completely addicted to the Amelia Peabody series, but I believe a major factor is the absolutely brilliant reading and characterizations of Barbers Rosenblatt. I wanted to stay with the series so I tried this book and although I enjoyed the story it was not nearly as engaging with Ms. O'malley's narration. While pleasant enough to listen to, she just doesn't capture the essence of the characters like Ms. Rosenblatt. Her attempts at accents are, at times, ridiculous.
Enjoy the series, but stick to the Rosenblatt narrations.
