"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

So the second half finds us trying to find out who killed a beloved archaeologist and took his treasure; the map from the beginning of the story. In addition to catching a murderer, our heroine, Lindsay also takes up the task of figuring out what the strange illness plaguing the town is and finding a cure for it. That’s a mighty tall order, but it wouldn’t be an interesting read if the odds weren’t stacked against the main character. From what I gather, this is the second book in the Wood’s Hole Mysteries series, but I didn’t have trouble diving in and following the story.
I became fascinated by each character's involvement: anxious that innocent but emotionally damaged Jessie, who finds the Viking wreck, should survive the attempt on her life; disappointed that the Nordic detective was not all he should be; sadly shocked by how quickly the brilliant scientist Dr Lindsey Nolan’s carefully constructed family life could fall apart. I gobbled the story chapter by chapter into the early hours. Leah Devlin has written a compelling thriller in Aegir’s Curse, she has also written about how the past in a small community, both personal and collective, can infect the present with fears and failed attempts to remedy personal relationships. This is a sophisticated and compelling thriller.
I liked the feel of Woods Hole, charming seaside village. The intricate weaving of Nordic and Viking history was well done, enough to pique interest without taking over. The varied cast of characters were well drawn, plenty of intelligent, accomplished, strong female protagonists with their share of flaws and challenging backstory’s guaranteed to have you fully invested in their well-being throughout the book. The plot progressed nicely as the mystery builds, the ending – absolutely superb.
A very well written mystery full of intrigue and adventure, gripping, with wonderful characters.
