Hunter or Looter?
on 5 March 2014
Not quite as good as his previous two books, it seems rather hastily written in parts and relies more heavily on what seem to be googled results rather than in-depth knowledge.
Peter Dennis appears to be turning somewhat crass too. And given that there is a fine line between treasure hunter who respects the past, and looter who just wants the goodies, his disregard for the damage caused by his impatience when he knows of no reason to rush, could easily shade him across that line.
As with the previous two books, there is a rather easy-going style to action sequences so it isn't edge of your seat reading but it rarely bores either. Just a few areas where he gets wrapped up in all the various explorers.Not a lot of surprise twists either. The baddies turn up on cue, the heroine gets kidnapped most times when she is left alone and Dennis continues to fight and shoot his way out of trouble.
So a solid, entertaining read that doesn't quite live up to his best but is still one of the better archaeological adventure series out there. As long as the author avoids the temptation to kill off central characters for artistic effect and so plunge the hero into an abyss of despondancy and alcohol, I shall keep looking for new books by this author.
