In Farouk's Fancies, Fiona Deal has found an ideal topic to plunge us, once more, into the rather breathless world inhabited by Meredith Pink. Life was never going to be quiet for our heroine and her partner, Adam, and even as they finish renovating their Nile barge they find themselves once more involved in skulduggery from Egypt's more recent past. The plot thickens and races through a number of permutations before resting on a conclusion that intimates there is potentially another book to come in this series. Most of the previous characters reappear in the current book with a new cast of villains and some hapless newcomers whom Meredith readily rescues. Egypt itself, at this stage, is almost a character, as its presence is felt both in terms of its impact in the present and through the weight of history that seems to pour from the pages. The historical detail in the whole series has been one of my highlights, Ms Deal impresses with her exploration of the known facts and how they could potentially be weaved into an historical narrative.
Farouk's Fancies then, a good read, keeping up the standard of the previous books in the series and the anticipation of yet another to come. I can't wait!Read more ›
Once again, Ms Deal has produced another intriguing tale. Her books are always so well written and researched and contain such marvellous descriptions of the Nile and the Egyptian way of life - both ancient and modern - they are a real treat to read. I can thoroughly recommend this current novel especially to those who have already read the first 3 books. Personally I can't wait for the next book in the series. Who knows? Perhaps Adam and Merry will finally 'set sail' on the 'Queen Ahmes'.
Merry and Adam's relationship develops further, and we are introduced to some new characters as well as some old favourites (Ahmed). Inevitably there is a mystery to solve - this is a Meredith Pink adventure after all - but this time the puzzle is (partly) a few thousand years younger, as Merry and Adam get caught up in the ripples from real 20th century events.
This is a fun, easy read, and reminded me there's more to Egypt than the recent depressing headlines. I read this over a few January evenings, the perfect antidote to a cold English winter.
You can read and enjoy this on its own, but I'd recommend reading the series in order, starting with Carter's Conundrums. Enjoy!
I know luxor and surrounding areas so reading these books took me back to luxor, I just wish the author gad been their when I was, I could talk to her all day.
Well done, Fabulous.
Can't wait to go back to Hatchepsuts magnificent temple.
Start with book 1 of the series and live the dream
