What do people think of the latest Peabody mystery Tomb of the Golden Bird?
I'm a Peabody freak. I admit it. About four years ago I found Seeing a large cat in the sale section of B&N. I was hooked. Within three months I'd acquired all of her books (to that date) in paperback via Amazon. Since then I've been unable to wait for the paperback editions, so I've collected the hardback, and would actually like to get all hardback editions if possible at some point in the future.
Elizabeth Peters really opened the door for me to the world of historical mysteries. I'd always been a big historical fiction fan but had never ventured into the mystery category. Along with Peabody I also became quite hooked on other egyptian mysteries such as The Anubis Slayings by P.C. Doherty and A path of shadows by Lauren Haney.
Tomb of the Golden Bird, was as usual, a wonderful read. In my opinion it began a touch slower than her previous stories, but was not at all lacking in the normal adventures of the Emerson clan. I'll be very sad to see the series end - as it has opened up so many new avenues and love of historical mysteries.
And I definitely wish I was Peabody (not so secretly) - the whole concept of a steel-reinforced parasol for prodding purposes makes me happy...
She's been hinting around at a connection between John Smythe and the Peabody series...
I too am a huge fan of Elizabeth Peters - I've read them all. I'm also a huge fan of her other books written under the name of Barbara Michaels (they lean toward gothic romance mystery).
I like everything Elizabeth Peters, I like the Bliss series and some of the other ones she writes plus the Barbara Mertz, Barbara micheals she writes under. Superlative author.
I love Amelia and Radcliffe, and could even tolerate the young Ramses. Although I got the next four books as they came out, I'm not interested in reading them. I'll probably not read another in the series unless Peters goes back and fills in some early years, when Amelia and Radcliffe would again be in the spotlight without the distractions of the younger generation.
I always get quite a chuckle with Peabody's repetitive (enjoyably so) description of Emerson - very modest LOL.
Still, I always look forward to the new ones.
