This review is from: Summer of the Dragon (Paperback)
D.J. Abbott, a young anthropology student, takes a summer job in Arizona, working for eccentric millionaire Hank Hunnicutt, who wants her help with a mysterious project he is working on. When D.J. arrives she is met by Hank's gorgeous but hostile assistant, Tom de Karsky, who clearly wishes she wasn't there. Hank's luxurious desert ranch is full of a bizzare variety of houseguests professing weird beliefs, reincarnation, spiritualism, the lost Atlantis etc, and D.J. is suspicious of them all, especially after Hank mysteriously dissapears, and she is obliged to join forces with gorgeous Tom to track him down. Even having a sinister mystery to solve does not suppress D.J. tremendous appetite, throughout the book she munches her way through huge quantities of delicious food, this is not a book you should read while hungry or on a diet, but it is an extremely enjoyable and exciting read, full of humour, suspense and likeable characters. I love Elizabeth Peters' contemporary thrillers, what a pity she seems to have given up writing them in favour of her saga about tiresome Amelia Peabody.

What a shame that O'Connell of Richmond felt it necessary to slate Elizabeth Peters Peabody series. He's obviosly not read them all!
