Arthur Burdon and Dr PorhoŽt walked in silence. They had lunched at a restaurant in the Boulevard Saint Michel, and were sauntering now in the gardens of the Luxembourg. Dr PorhoŽt walked with stooping shoulders, his hands behind him. He beheld the scene with the eyes of the many painters who have sought by means of the most charming garden in Paris to express their sense of beauty.

W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965) was an English novelist and playwright. Maugham was famous as a dramatist before he was known for his novels and short stories. His clarity of style, the perfection of his form, and the subtlety of his thought, thinly veiled by a worldly cynicism made him an international figure. Among his novels are Of Human Bondage, The Moon and Sixpence, and The Razor's Edge.From AudioFile:
This third novel in the Amelia Peabody series once again takes the listener to Egypt and its ancient ruins. Who better than author/Egyptologist Elizabeth Peters to concoct a turn-of-the-century mystery in which humor, romance, and an archaeological dig come together. Susan O'Malley's narration is adequate. Amelia and her husband, Emerson, investigate the death of an antiquities dealer and the theft of a mummy case. Their son, Ramses, collects his own amusing evidence. The scenes and pace of the novel are kept intact, but the narration noticeably lacks the ethnic accents that enliven these stories.
