Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Jones, vacationing from her New York publishing job, is off to do touristy things in Denmark: gawk at the Little Mermaid, stroll in the Tivoli...look for a missing person? The plane ride itself had turned out to be Kismet, introducing Elizabeth to her idol, Nobel Prize-winning historian and famed eccentric Margaret Rosenberg and her long-suffering son, Christian. So when Margaret vanishes in Copenhagen, Elizabeth joins the irascible Christian in searching the city, from underground crypts to the graves of queens. What they encounter is a baffling ransom demand for a bathrobe, not money. And what they dig up will connect a modern disappearance with an ancient artifact and the oldest of motives for crime.

The Copenhagen Connection is an Elizabeth Peters classic, featuring her signature blend of ancient history and modern mayhem, red herrings, and the crème de la crème of amateur detectives.

    "Light Entertainment"

    Rich characters but weak plot; entertaining in any case. It is a refreshing change from the usual.

    "What Just Happened?"

    As you may already know, I like to read books set in places I’ve visited so I was looking forward to this adventure in Copenhagen.

    It fell flat for me. What was it? Comedy? Slapstick? A Danish Caper? Thriller-Mystery? I didn’t really get it.

    Certain segments were entertaining enough, and some parts did make me laugh, I must admit… but were they supposed to?

    Overall, it barely rates above a “meh”.

    "Nice light listen"
    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was nice but fast. This was a good light listen - one you don't have to concentrate on too closely. Good happily-ever-after ending. Kinda formula for Ms. Peters, but always pleasant.

    "Farce humorous novel by Elizabeth Peters, best for long standing fans"

    I am writing this review in response to two of the other written reviews.

    This non-series mystery and romantic caper by ELizabeth Peters is a madcap/screwball comedy which apparently (reading the other written reviews) is trying to a listener who is not a long standing fan of Peters and her other pseudonym, Barbara Michaels. Although this is not one of my top favorites among Peters/Michaels many works, I still enjoyed it very much (4 stars). The heroine, Elizabeth, is thrown in with the Rosenbergs, mother (Margaret) and son (Christian, who is the grumpy hero). Only Margaret, who goes on the lam, knows what the heck is going on, but Christian and Elizabeth muddle through with repeated clumsy mishaps when confronting the criminals. This is definitely one of the more confusing novels by Peters so I recommend it for listening by long standing fans and not for readers/listeners who are new to Peters. Lastly, this novel is not a travelogue for Copenhagen but does contain some Scandinavian history and archeology.

    For listeners who are new to Peters, I recommend trying one of her other, more sedate novels or one of her series. See the bibliography in the Wikipedia entry for Elizabeth Peters.

    Recommended for people who like madcap plays like Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" or Brandon Thomas's "Charley's Aunt" or madcap movies like "Bringing Up Baby" (Katherine Hepburn and Carey Grant). These are three of my favorites for light hearted screwball entertainment containing much confusion.

    (I found the narration too loud and had to turn down the volume from my usual comfort level; odd considering I am slightly deaf.)
