In the first three novels in this series the heroine, Meredith Pink, showed an unerring ability to land herself in the middle of a set of complicated, dangerous Egyptian mysteries. Tying the Pharaonic past with really up to date Egyptian story lines made for an exciting combination of intrigue and suspense. Having resolved the Carter, Tutankhamun and Hapshepsut elements, it was intriguing to see where the author would take us next. Was there another mystery in the Egyptian past that could grip us like the the anomalies revealed in the previous novels?
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!

I've just enormously enjoyed reading this novel on my husband's kindle. It is the fourth book in the series and follows the further adventures of Adam and Merry who have lovingly restored the old dahabeeyah 'Queen Ahmes'. Their intention was to take paying guests up and down the Nile and to share their incredible knowledge of temples and tombs. Naturally things don't quite go according to plan! In 'Farouk's Fancies' Adam and Merry end up trying to solve yet another mystery, which involves, amongst many other things, a stolen scarab and the witch-like Madam Gadalla and her sinister family. I will leave readers to find out for themselves about the unscrupulous antics of King Farouk!
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'.

Having enjoyed the first three books in this series, I had to get the fourth. I was not disappointed. This tale is definitely different from the first three, but still retains the humour and pace.
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!

Read the first of these books and must say I enjoyed it so ordered the set (which there are four) this being the last I presume. To say they are far fetched is putting it mildly, as Merry seems to find lost tombs, artefacts that have been buried for centuries and gets herself and her new boyfriend into predicaments looking for lost Egyptian treasure. They were an easy going read gave loads of info on the Egyptian dynasties but at times did get on my nerves a bit and was tempted to skip but didn't incase I missed part of the story that was relevant. Finally I felt each book was on the same lines and you knew what was going to happen
