The prologue begins in the ancient mists of time that is the 5th century BC, continuing to 2017. The story revolves around two lapis and gold horse-head pendants (amulets) and is told in two parts. The first, covering the years 1818 in the Middle East to 1852 England, is interesting if somewhat slow moving. The second part, involving the present day is immediately suspenseful, fast-paced, reflecting current events in Syria. The author has creatively threaded the story of the amulets from the past to the refugee crisis of the present, to the wanton destruction of invaluable museum artifacts. Bravo!
The descriptions of the desert as well as the English countryside are captivating. The author has an elegance of style in her writing that I enjoy. "Each of us is a play unto himself with a long cast of characters buried inside."
The author lovingly maintains the personalities of both Maggie and her beloved daughter, Allie that we have come to know and love in the past 8 stories. Ever-resourceful, strong and independent, the two women find themselves in situations that would test the courage of any modern-day sleuth. And they do it in a believable, thoroughly modern fashion.
And, as usual, the author succeeds in telling a wonderful story without resorting to sex, sexual innuendo or expletives of any kind.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
