Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters, Historical Mysteries (lokakuuta 2022)

Kirja-arvosteluja

This is a really great Amelia Peabody adventure, with a now mature heroine and her whole family involved in the dig. This is set in early 1922 as we are very close to a major discovery in the Kings Valley... and it is lovely to be there as we follow the Emersons and cie. The plot is really good and this is a great page turner. Egyptology and crimes, with a touch of family love and dynamics!

An antiquities dealer visits Emerson requesting compensation for a forged scarab allegedly sold by David from his grandfather's collection, which never existed. Discreet enquiries reveal that the impersonator has sold fake antiquities to other dealers. Who is trying to vilify David and why?

I haven't read any of the Amelia Peabody books for a couple of years and I'd forgotten how funny Amelia's narrative "voice" is.

Amelia Peabody, an eccentric and outspoken woman for her time, and a "spinster" by choice, pauses in Italy while making her way to Egypt for a pleasure tour. There she befriends Evelyn, a young woman in complicated circumstances, and invites her along as her traveling companion. The two ladies begin a trip up the Nile, stopping in Amarna where a mystery unfolds before them.

Amelia is a hoot, and it might be fun to see where this series goes. The author is a professional archaeologist, so she really knows what she's talking about when it comes to incorporating those details into the plot. However, the zeitgeist as presented (both the setting in the mid-1880s and publish date of 1975) are a bit off-putting. Even the "good guys" frequently drop casual racist comments. For that reason, I'm not sure I'll read further. I've got too much good stuff on my list to spend time reading something that makes me cringe.… (lisätietoja)
