Listeners who are seeking a diverting, richly evocative mystery will enjoy this period piece set in New York City in the 1880s. The youthful, exuberant voice of narrator Kate Rudd brings to life reporter Elizabeth van den Broek, who becomes personally involved in the fiendish murders of a serial killer who is obsessed with Egyptian mythology. While listeners may tire of the many historical references, some characterizations and incidents add to the mood and advance the plot. The youthful photographer, Evans; the drink-impaired old seaman, Sea Dog; the sophisticated Cordelia are a few of the excellent portrayals that enhance this audiobook.
