Publisher's Summary

Captain Gabriel Lacey accompanies famous dandy Lucius Grenville to Egypt, a land that Lacey has long anticipated visiting. Lacey travels there for more than a simple holiday, however - James Denis has tasked him with finding an "object" in Alexandria and procuring it, whatever the cost.  

The task does not turn out to be so simple. Locating what Denis wants in the teeming city proves difficult, sending Lacey and Grenville exploring tombs and temples down the Nile. Lacey must deal with treasure hunters, a shadow following him and his friends, murder, and missing his new family as he explores the exotic country he has so longed to see....

Gabriel and company try to stay alive in Egypt

If I could give James Gillies 10 stars, I would. The man is an abs genius: every character has a different voice. He does women, foreign accents, British dialects to perfection. I have never listened to a more versatile narrator. Of course, Ashley Gardiner’s Captain Gabriel Lacey books are a perfect showcase for James’ talents; her writing and Gabriel’s adventures from the Regency period are nothing short of brilliant. This book is different to the others in the series because it takes place in Egypt. The time period is a very interesting time in Egyptian history. Absolutely love the writer, the series and the narrator and I urge lovers of crime, mystery and historical books to start reading/listening to this wonderful 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...

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.

Excellent!

Yet again, an exciting adventure. The characters developing with each book and the reading is truly excellent. Ashley Gardner writes so well, all her books are gems. How long until the next audio books?

Every book leaves you wanting more!

When another book becomes available I genuinely rejoice and relish every chapter of James Gillies ability to breathe life in to every well loved character! The writing is so superb that I will NEVER enter a tunnel, I felt I couldn’t breathe just listening!! As the book nears its end, I feel like old friends have left me and hope that it isn’t long until I meet them all again, for their next adventure!! Bravo!!!
