As an appreciative reader of the Amelia Peabody series I was thrilled to see this book in it's unabridged form. The performance by Barbara Rosenblat is unequaled in my listening experience. And the story is fun, humorous and interesting as are almost all in this series.
Please continue to petition Audible to skip the abridged versions of this series or any other for that matter!

Another wonderful story about the Emerson family. Barbara Rosenblatt handles all of the voices as she always does - with skill and continuity. I did notice a couple of times where she got her voices mixed up, but they were minor and lasted only a moment.
The Emersons have three major issues, that are, of course, intertwined. Helping a former enemy, bringing another to justice, facing another minor enemy, and helping with a major find. Add to this Ramses' involvement in WWI, and the plot twists as always.
The plot does get a little confusing as right as you are invested in one set of problems, the Emersons leave all that behind to refocus on an entirely different set of problems. Be willing to jump with them - it all comes out all right in the end.
I've read and listened to this book many times, and will continue to do so.
