This mass market paperback (c. 1970) came from one of two boxes of mysteries donated to the Little Free Library of Twinbrook (#7720) in January, 2023, by a neighbor on Ardennes Ave.

Thanks Squeaky for another book by this author. I enjoy her little adventures, they are a nice light read.

Between the 666 Challenge and the March theme of ancient cultures, this little book seemed a good choice for a quick read. I have enjoyed other books by this author, particularly her Egyptian archeological series. This book had the archeology angle, as well as travel and intrigue and minor romance. I was a little skeptical in the first chapter, but it got better as it went on.

I'm glad that I saw the copyright date early on and discovered that this book is a year older than I am. That helped me be more patient with the way women are depicted in this book. I was surprised and pleased that Dinah was smarter than I was giving her credit for. The solution of the "mystery" made decent sense particularly based on the state of the world at the time it was written. But for a performer on the cusp of her first chance at stardom, she seems completely uninterested in her job and she doesn't seem to have discussed with others on the trip that she's an opera singer. And she is entirely too focused on putting on a good act for the guy she's with, even in perilous situations. So mot exactly a feminist but she does have some spunk.
