Lara has just about wrapped up her annual antiques buying trip in Europe when she's invited to meet reclusive billionaire Crawford Lake. Lake wants her to get a certain Etruscan sculpture, and to tell no one he's the buyer. All Lara has to do is persuade the owner to sell, which is a hard thing to do when he turns up dead in his own Etruscan tomb.
Early Reviews of The Etruscan Chimera
Erudite and entertaining.....a journey that is every bit as magical as the elusive chimera.
Canadian Hamilton serves up her usual appealing mix of objets d'art and murder in her sixth well-researched mystery to feature antiques dealer Lara McClintoch.....Erudite mystery fams will enjoy the sophisticated wit.
The Etruscan Chimera is a really marvelous read...a vividly exciting and colossally absorbing first-rate read that should not be missed. And I cannot urge eveyone enough to give this mystery novel a go.
Lyn Hamilton is a very creative and colorful writer who always manages to bring the past to life in her archeological mysteries. Her latest work, THE ETRUSCAN CHIMERA is a conspiracy buff's delight. The supporting cast have
schemes within plots that Lara innocently and unwillingly participates in. This is one mystery that will take a genius to solve.
