But Mr Camperdown, the family solicitor, insists that they are an heirloom, to be passed down from generation to generation.

This was so enjoyable, so exciting that I couldn't wait to get back to it each day and was sad when it ended. So well-read, he really is the best in my book.

Best-selling mystery author Elizabeth Peters has captured the hearts of thousands of readers with her spunky Victorian Egyptologist, Amelia Peabody Emerson. In Seeing a Large Cat, Amelia must ensnare a modern-day killer, a bogus spiritualist, and a predatory debutante in the awesome Valley of the Kings. Someone is sending ominous messages: "Stay away from tomb Twenty-A!" Intrigued, parasol-wielding Amelia won't rest until she finds the forbidden burial site.

Old-style Sweet

Really enjoyed this, in the style of an Agatha Christie novel. Good characters, well-read though with a couple of odd accents that just added to its 'old-style'ness'.
