    Partners now in marriage and in trade, Lady Julia and Nicholas Brisbane have finally returned from abroad to set up housekeeping in London. But merging their respective collections of gadgets, pets, and servants leaves little room for the harried newlyweds themselves, let alone Brisbane's private enquiry business. Among the more unlikely clients: Julia's very proper brother, Lord Bellmont, who swears Brisbane to secrecy about his case.

    Rachel says: "Yes! Lady Julia is back and I'm loving it!"

    Story

    I'm enjoying the development of the relationship between the two main characters -- Lady Julia and Brisban (sp?). This novel also illustrates the lack of freedom women in this era experienced which is interesting to contemplate. The actual plot is not as good as the previous book, but still intriguing.

    Amelia Peabody inherited two things from her father: a considerable fortune and an unbendable will. The first allowed her to indulge in her life's passion. Without the second, the mummy's curse would have made corpses of them all.

    I love Amelia Peabody and this first book sets the scene for everything to follow. The narrator is perfect for Amelia's acerbic character.

    Ten people gather together for an elegant London dinner party. By the end of the party, only nine are alive. Sometime after dinner, General Thaddeus Carlyon is brutally murdered in the hallway. Who had the strength - and motive - to murder the distinguished military hero? Nurse Latterly and Inspector Monk find the answers in a nightmarish legacy of evil.

    Story

    The main characters took too long to figure out what was going on. I understand that children were "invisible" in this period of time, but still it seemed too long and drawn out as they finally tumbled to the problem. The courtroom scenes were excellent and it was very moving once the story got to go forward.

    Story

    I've enjoyed listening to the other Julia Grey novels, but they often didn't complete the mystery to my satisfaction or it was too obvious who the culprit was. This one fleshes out all the characters marvelously and the mystery is much better written. I didn't know til three-quarters of the way thru, who had probably done it. I'm looking forward to the next novel in which, I hope there will be as much cooperation between Julia and Brisbane as stupid misunderstandings (which is an artless way of continuing the plot).

    Nathaniel is eleven-years-old and a magician's apprentice, learning the traditional art of magic. All is well until he has a life-changing encounter with Simon Lovelace, a magician of unrivaled ruthlessness and ambition. When Lovelace brutally humiliates Nathaniel in public, Nathaniel decides to speed up his education, teaching himself spells far beyond his years. With revenge on his mind, he masters one of the toughest spells of all and summons Bartimaeus, a five-thousand-year-old djinni, to assist him.

    Randy says: "Terrific Trilogy"
