An eminent Oxford professor is murdered but the authorities are calling it a suicide. Beautiful young don Catherine Donovan refuses to believe the official verdict especially after she receives a cryptic note sent just before the professor's death, along with a collection of priceless antique maps. Teaming up with classicist James Rutherford, she embarks on a journey which takes them from the dreaming spires of Oxford to the ancient wonders of Peru and Egypt. With a shadowy organization determined to stop them, can Catherine and James unlock the mystery of the ancients before they become the killers' next victims? And can it really be possible that these clues are warning of an imminent cataclysm one that puts even more than their lives in peril?

A fairly entertaining tale that zips along at a brisk pace, which sees beautiful young (aren't they always - couldn't we have a fat plain heroine for once?!!!) don Catherine Donovan teaming up with classicist James Rutherford (handsome? of course he is!). Solving the mystery of Professor Kent's cryptic note take the intrepid duo on a race round the world taking in Peru & Egypt on their travels.

While I did enjoy this story it follows the tried & tested formula of so many of this genre so there's no surprises here & once again I felt a bit let down by the ending.

Peru has always fascinated me & that made the book more appealing to me. I'd heard of the Nazca lines before but thought they were worth further investigation - & they certainly are amazing. Here's a link... The Nazca Lines - incredible eh?

Ha ha! Yet another great Wild Find from Brighouse's Forget-Me-Not shop, courtesy of Plum-Crazy and just 50p. The book starts in Oxford and sounds like the sort of story I like to get my teeth into (although reading Plum-Crazy's review, I may be disappointed!) . . . my review and release to follow.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I was a touch disappointed with this book; there are so mny around at the moment of this genre that they have to be very good to stand out. maybe I missed something here, but I wasn't gripped; had it figured out by the end of part one!
However - don't take my word for it. Please read, review and release.
Welcome to the addictive world of book crossing.
