Editorial Reviews


Great mystery adventure book with a touch of the unknown, July 14, 2017
By R W Piercey
This review is from: Ribbons of Death (Peacetaker Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I got so involved with this book, I just kept reading until I was done. The characters are very believable, they encounter situations which, while involving the paranormal, still seem realistic. I intend to read the whole series over the next few days. Highly recommended.

Kept my interest all the way
By Minerva on June 30, 2017
A good blend of history, legend, action, deductive reasoning, thrills and well-drawn characters make this a fine read. Should be a worthwhile series.

Great Beginning to a New Series

Book Review: Ribbons of Death by Edita A. Petrick
Review by Dawn Thomas

Dr. Fineas Gahji is the Assistant Direct of the Cairo Museum of Antiquities. He has tried for ten years to get close to Nicola Moses, an international financier. He convinced a waiter to give Moses a note with a cartouche drawn on it. When Moses saw the cartouche, he summoned Gahji. The powerful amulet could release the Peacetaker, a creature capable of creating chaos.

Pascal Giroux, a French reporter,invites Carter, an American hired mercenary to attend a women's peace march in Cairo. This was an important event since the American Ambassador's wife and three daughters were participating. The march turns violent for no obvious reason. Carter sustained severe injuries to his face, neck and shoulders but his friend Pascal died.

When information about an amulet surfaced, Carter looked for an expert. He found Stella Hunter who wrote a book on the subject. The two of them travel across the United States speaking with experts. After a few of the experts died unexpectedly in what appear to be accidental deaths, Carter and Stella realize they are working against the clock. They have to solve the puzzle and stop the Peacetaker before they become accidental statistics too.

This is the first book in the Stella Hunter mystery series. It is written in third person and in the present tense. The characters are well developed and the story is fast paced.The story is a great start for the series. When I finished the book, I could not wait to start the next one. I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys mysteries or mythology.

(5 stars) Jenna Brewster, Goodreads; Barnes &Noble
One of the most original and well-crafted novels I've read in a longtime!  I will love to read more from Ms. Petrick in the future... happy to see she  has quite the backlist!

From the Author

Every book I write is inspired by something. This one came as a result of a museum visit and stopping by one of the display vitrines and wondering: "What if this happened differently...?" And when you love archaeology, and ancient history with a touch of human character flaws, the results are the Ribbons of Death. And since this is a series, Book 2 is out now, with Book 3 planned to come just in time for Christmas.
