The Jackal's Head

Althea Tomlinson comes back to Egypt as just another tourist, showing the country to a spoiled 17-year-old girl. That's what she tells herself, anyway. Really, though, what drives her is a desire to discover the truth behind her father's disgrace and subsequent death.

Publisher's Summary

Althea Tomlinson comes back to Egypt as just another tourist, showing the country to a spoiled 17-year-old girl. That's what she tells herself, anyway. Really, though, what drives her is a desire to discover the truth behind her father's disgrace and subsequent death.

That Althea knows something - something buried in her memory - is unquestionable. But what? Finding out will clear her father's name, certainly. It could also lead to Althea's death, because the secret is centuries old - as old as the treasure of Nefertiti.

    A 50-something who loves sci-fi, cozy mysteries, thrillers, an occasional romance, and any genre if it is a good story. And especially if it makes me laugh! No vampires or zombies though - these are NOT sci-fi!

    "Prepping for Amelia"

    This book is set in Eygpt, like the Amelia Emerson series, but was written several years earlier. The archeologist John reminds me of Radcliffe Emerson, but the heroine, Tommy, is nothing like Amelia! Especially the end of the book - I could never see Amelia letting a man take care of a situation while she goes to a safe place. This is almost like a preparation for writing the Amelia series, but following the usual gender roles of the time (the 1960s). An interesting read, not as funny as many of her books, but enjoyable.
