Filled with ancient murder, family secrets and really good food, Egyptian Enigma is the third adventure in L J M Owen's charming series Dr Pimms, Intermillennial Sleuth. Really cold cases.
Egyptian Enigma, Book 3 Dr Pimms Intermillennial Sleuth Synopsis:
Dr Elizabeth Pimms, enthusiastic archaeologist and reluctant librarian, has returned to Egypt. Among the treasures of the Cairo museum she spies cryptic symbols in the corner of an ancient papyrus. Decoding them leads Elizabeth and her newly formed gang of sleuths to a tomb of mummies whose identities must be uncovered.
What is the connection between the mummies and Twosret, female Pharaoh and last ruler of Egypt’s nineteenth dynasty? How did their bodies end up scattered across the globe? And is the investigation related to the attacks on Elizabeth’s family and friends back in Australia? Between grave robbers, cannibals, sexist historians and jealous Pharaohs, can Dr Pimms solve her latest archaeological mystery?

Straight off the blocks I must declare a soft spot for LJM Owen's Dr Pimms Intermillennial Sleuth Series. A fan was born when I read Book 1, Olmec Obituary. My summation after reading it:
If you are a fan of the TV series Bones, this is a book for you. If you are a foodie, this is a book for you. If you love libraries, this is a book for you.
