What do some reviewers say about the audiobook?

Another Great Adventure It's Capt Lacy & cast of many's impossible to go wrong! Having been to Egypt. it was great to hear/read about the country after Napoleon put it back on the map...I just love this series! could be a good story but the recording has issues couldn't finish this book because of the bad recording- there is a muffle and growl sound in the background which kinda ruins this one... Another adventure! I have to say I thought this would be more about excavating for treasure. But of course with Lacey there has to be murder and intrigue! An unexpected new member of the family. Many fights and Denis having orchestrated a lot even from a distance Not My Favorite I've been enjoying this series, and James Gillies' narration has been excellent, but this book is my least favorite so far. Frankly, it's just too ridiculous. Having been to Egypt, I can say that Gardner's depiction of it is a touristy Aladdin's tale. Sword and fist fights break out every time Lacey turns a corner, and then he and Grenville just happen across an undiscovered tomb full of treasure. Oh, and there are belly dancers. From the start I have found Grenville a more interesting and appealing character than Lacey, and have fantasized he and Donata were the main characters, with her playing a greater role in the mystery-solving. But that's just my personal preference. I'm ready to return to London. Favorite one of the series I really enjoyed this one. I've liked them all but this one was fun with some thrills I missed London! I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as I usually do. I think I missed London and Donata. I was also put out with how he let "Marcus" get away with trying more than once to kill him. That was inexcusable. But still an enjoyable listen.
