So, when a friend recommended Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody mysteries (starting with "Crocodile on the Sandbank"), I jumped right someone else pointed out, the mystery aspect of Crocodile on the Sandbank is not the File Size: KB.Crocodile on the Sandbank This is a wonderful book.

There is a problem, however. Barbara Rosenblatt should be the narrator. She was the first voice to give life to Amelia Peabody. To listen to another, less talented reader, who gives very little differentiation to the characters is very unsatisfying.Crocodile on the Sandbank is the first of the Amelia Peabody series, and my first read by Elizabeth Peters.

I found it to be a nice departure from my usual romance fare that has left me looking forward to trying the next book in the series when I'm, once again, in the mood for something different.
