Summer of the Dragon
Summer of the Dragon - Elizabeth Peters

Part of my Used Book Binge while I was on vacation.  I've been curious about Elizabeth Peters' stand-alones since I finished her Vicky Bliss series.  I enjoyed the Jacqueline Kirby series too, although I have to admit I'm not a huge fan of Amelia Peabody, although they are very well-written mysteries.  

 

So.  Summer of the Dragon.  Great fun. Nothing deep or taxing or likely to get nominated for an award.  DJ is mouthy, with a self-deprecating sense of humour and a love for eating.  Tom is an ass and the romantic interest.  There's no character development; it's a bit like an episode in an old TV detective show like Hart-to-Hart or similar.

 

I enjoyed it.  I enjoyed it even more because I think I only paid a quarter - maybe .50 for it.  It's a book I'll hang on to and read again when I want an adventure with humour and zero angst.
