Hmmm. If you have really enjoyed the Egyptology angle of Peabody's works - yes. This deals with the famous head statue of Nefertiti, and all that stuff was interesting to me.

If you know all that, abd enjoy Peabody sorely for her writing.... maybe not. By the end of the book - the style was really annoying.

I received my copy a couple of days ago, but am in the middle of a Barbara Michaels book, which I should finish today.

Ah, I was wondering about you, Jude.

I'm about 100 pages in and my impression so far is much more favourable than Inanna's. Let's hope it doesn't all go south later on :er:

I'll have more to say when I'm finished...

The first 100 pages I also really enjoyed,Jude. The last few chapters were the ones that grated on me.

Just realized that I haven't read "deeds of the disturber". Its available on nypl only as an audiobook, so it escaped me. Buying it on Amazon now. Oh, wow, how I needed this, this week!

ETA: it is not available on Kindle. :shock:

Having read all of Elizabeth Peters' books, I'm now working my way through the Barbara Michaels books.

I have to say, the "seduction" scene at the end of "Search the Shadows" is probably the best writing of that genre I've ever read. :D

They should film it, and not change a word of the dialogue.

Innana, I have it on kindle so it must be available!
