Any additional comments?
I normally love to listen to Elizabeth Peters' books, but this one falls a bit short of her normally fun listens.
The story is a bit far fetched and felt very contrived. It was even quite confusing at the end. I listened to the "climax" 3 times but couldn't find the continuity of the storyline. The "mystery" was somewhat (very) predictable and the love interest just wasn't plausible. It felt like a 'C' movie.
The narrator was great, as usual, but the material just wasn't there for her.
Ms Peters was evidently having a rough patch. I wouldn't recommend it, unless you're a 15 year old - maybe.

Three pages were skipped during the book's climax in this audio version. A terrible editing error that really ruined the main "twist" of the story. Pass on the audio and read the book--it rambles a bit but is still enjoyable because it doesn't follow the usual pattern.
