George Gaskill, a car salesman from Indiana, goes missing from the stern deck of the Aegean Queen, leaving only a pool of blood and a strange note behind. Ollie Osgood, the husband of Dotsy Lamb´s best friend Lettie, is the last person to have seen him and one of three men who lost a bundle to George in a Texas Hold´em poker game. Then the ship´s photographer turns up murdered on the beautiful island of Mykonos. Dotsy wants only to unwind and to renew her promising relationship with Marco Quattrocchi, the Carabinieri captain she met in Italy three years ago, but since Ollie is the prime suspect in George´s disappearance and Marco is embroiled in the photographer´s murder, she can´t. The Aegean Queen is a ship with a theme - archaeology. Dotsy strikes up a friendship with the ship´s guest lecturer, famous archaeologist, Dr. Luc Girard, and introduces him to the ship´s klutziest dancer, Sophie Antonakos. With the help of Lettie Osgood´s amazing powers of observation, Dotsy, Sophie, and Luc discover antiquities in the ship´s display cases that have been looted from museums or smuggled from their homelands. The trails of murder and theft converge on the island of Crete, where Dotsy finds herself dodging bullets from the gun of a man she doesn´t even know. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Karen Krause.

In the sequel to Time Tunnel to Londinium, David Johnson returns to Roman Britain, this time 50 years later than his previous visit. His friend is now an old man but, once more, David is able to help Marcus with a bit of a problem, as well as helping out a group of archaeologists in his own time period. A mix of time travel fun and some real historical facts to stir up a bit of interest in history. As one reviewer commented, Olli doesn´t patronize the listener, and although the series is aimed at children aged 8-12 it is also a very enjoyable listen for adults, even in their second childhood. Ideal for UK KS2 school curriculum. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Morton Tooley. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/078368/bk_acx0_078368_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
