Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Jones, vacationing from her New York publishing job, is off to do touristy things in Denmark: gawk at the Little Mermaid, stroll in the Tivoli...look for a missing person? The plane ride itself had turned out to be Kismet, introducing Elizabeth to her idol, Nobel Prize-winning historian and famed eccentric Margaret Rosenberg and her long-suffering son, Christian. So when Margaret vanishes in Copenhagen, Elizabeth joins the irascible Christian in searching the city, from underground crypts to the graves of queens. What they encounter is a baffling ransom demand for a bathrobe, not money. And what they dig up will connect a modern disappearance with an ancient artifact and the oldest of motives for crime. The Copenhagen Connection is an Elizabeth Peters classic, featuring her signature blend of ancient history and modern mayhem, red herrings, and the crème de la crème of amateur detectives.

Rich characters but weak plot; entertaining in any case. It is a refreshing change from the usual.

What Just Happened?

As you may already know, I like to read books set in places I’ve visited so I was looking forward to this adventure in Copenhagen.

It fell flat for me. What was it? Comedy? Slapstick? A Danish Caper? Thriller-Mystery? I didn’t really get it.

Certain segments were entertaining enough, and some parts did make me laugh, I must admit… but were they supposed to?

Overall, it barely rates above a “meh”.
