    Amelia Peabody does it again!

    Amelia could be Agatha Christie's first cousin. The charactters are so believable, it makes me want to go to Egypt to meet them. The plots are exciting and engrossing.

    Enticing as a lead-in to next

    Serpent on the Crown was weaker than some of her others in this series (I agree with A Bourne, too). It was fun to see just how much closer to King Tut's tomb the Emersons can come before someone actually stumbles into it! They've been past the site at least a dozen times. I too appreciated the reduction of 'air-time' given to the grandchildren, and bemoan the reduction of time given to Amelia's musings. Waiting with bated breath for the next one.

    READER IS A WHIZ AT DISTINCTIVE VOICES

    Veteran voice performer Barbara Rosenblat doesn't miss an iota of the sly humor that readers/listeners have come to expect in the popular Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters. Ms. Rosenblat successfully inhabits diverse characters and presents distinctive voices in this return to 1922 Egypt. As fans hoped they would, Amelia Peabody, Emerson, her archaeologist spouse, and her retinue have returned to Egypt for one more excavation. The 17th in a highly popular series, the story once again provides listeners with an extended visit to another time and a mysterious place. Almost upon arrival a quiet afternoon is interrupted by a visit from writer Magda Petherick who comes bearing a small treasure, a golden image of a king, which she claims is cursed. Magda further claims that the image is responsible for the death of her husband, and more deaths will follow unless the object is returned to the tomb from which it was taken. Of course, Amelia and her group don't quite believe Magda but they can't resist a challenge. So, they set off to try to find the secrets of the statue's origins only to uncover a former enemy and imminent danger for themselves. 'The Serpent On The Crown' is exotic adventure at its best - don't miss it! - Gail Cooke
