Nice mystery with cameos by Lawrence of Arabia and Gertrude Bell. Explores the emotionally charged situations created by imperialism, plus, camels

This is the second in the series I've tried. Like the Egyptian setting and I he characterizations. Plots, not surprisingly, are primarily political, not really my copy and f tea, but enjoyable , all. In all

Set in Naples in 1913 where a minor diplomat has been sent after he made some poor decisions in his last posting. When he was stabbed while riding his bicycle Seymour is sent to investigate. The plot involves a bicycle racing club, bicycling being an obsession of the murdered man as well as most of the city. Also puzzling is a lottery ticket he had in his pocket. It's a slow-moving story with some local political activity thrown in. I found it a challenge to stay interested.
