Death on Tour

Death on Tour
by Janice Hamrick

Jocelyn Shore has gone through a messy divorce. As a treat she decides to cross off one of the items on her bucket list -- a trip to Egypt. She invites her cousin Kyla to go on a Egyptian tour with her. Shortly after they arrive in the land of pyramids, the obnoxious Millie Owens apparently falls to her death. A close examination of Millie's body reviews that she was stabbed in the neck. Thus begins a series of unnerving events with Jocelyn as the prime target. The tension in the book is tempered with flashes of humor. Mysteries that take place on tours require a delicate balance of travel log and plot and Hamrick did a good job. Janice Hamrick gives the reader a good sense of place. She made it easy for me to feel what it's like to be accosted by aggressive street venders trying to drag you to their stalls to buy their wares. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the works of Maddy Hunter, Tracy Kiely and Ellery Adams.] -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department
