Booby-trapped Egyptian tombs, tomb raiders, an Australian heartthrob, and buried treasure--what's not to like in this debut adventure in the Maggie Edwards mystery series? This audio production has exciting moments and a wonderful description of the desert sky, but somehow, despite its many attributes and a satisfying narration by narrator Cathi Colas, it is less than enchanting. Colas is unable to enliven the heroine, Maggie, who seems self-centered and lacking in any knowledge, or even interest in, history and/or archaeology despite having received a bejeweled scarab from her kidnapped uncle, an archaeologist. Still, the scene in the tomb is thrilling. In real life the tomb of Cleopatra may actually be discovered in the near future. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
