3.0 out of 5 stars Anticipation not fulfilled, 22 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A River in the Sky (Amelia Peabody Mysteries) (Hardcover)
I have enjoyed the Peabody journals for years, even seeking out titles in New York that I couldn't get easily in UK, but......for the first time I have put this story down half finished.
Other reviewers are right, it's slow in pace & seems to have been an effort to create a decent plot. Amelia's narrative is not as witty as heretofore, (or maybe I've read too many & am a little jaded!)
Pleasant for bed time reading & I will finish it, but will not be quite so keen to seek out the next installment, sorry Ms Peters, you have served me so well!

I agree completely. I'm beginning to feel that Amelia has had her day, which is a shame, as such a wonderful character would be sorely missed, but this is not up to Miss Peter's usual standards.
