The Amulet Thief
The Amulet Thief - Luanne Bennett

by Luanne Bennett

 

Alex was born in New York, but she was shipped off to Indiana as a small child and her return to the big city takes some adapting. What she finds most difficult is that people keep staring at her rather than minding their own business like she remembers New Yorkers doing in the past.

 

One of the two items she keeps close is a silver medallion necklace that her mother gave her, telling her to keep it hidden. She wears it under clothing, assuming the warning was because it has some value and keeping it as a treasure to remember her mother.

 

There were some seemingly supernatural forces at work here. The story had real possibilities, but I didn't like the turn it took.

 

The one thing I found really irritating was a significant character who is of help to Alex when she gets into a dire situation, but is rather domineering and keeps information to himself. The worst part is that the guy is treating her badly, but she finds him attractive. Puke! It would probably appeal to those who enjoy books like Fifty Shades of Grey, but it's not something I would normally even finish.

 

The writing was good enough, it was the plot and characters I found not to my taste. There was a chance here for a really interesting supernatural story, but the domineering romance took over as the main theme.

"That´s right. And be sure and shout it. Arabs don´t understand anything said in an ordinary "English" voice."

 

The racism in this book is staggering.

Murder in Mesopotamia - Agatha Christie

My final read for the Halloween bingo and I´m finishing up my card by reading a book by one of my favorite authors: Agatha Christie.

Since I already have read a Miss Marple novel, I´m picking up a Poirot this time around. I hope this is going to be a good one.

Death of an Airman - Christopher St. John Sprigg

The policemen seem to be rather clueless ... and so am I.

 

Has it been murder? Has it been suicide? Has it been an accident? Who knows? The only thing I know is that I don´t trust the Bishop one bit. And I wonder how this story is going to end.
