  • I can't wait for the next Peabody story... I really do think [Elizabeth Peters'] books are great entertainment.

  • A writer so popular that the public library has to keep her books under lock and key. - Washington Post Book World

  • Think Miss Marple with early feminist gloss crossed with Indiana Jones... accomplished entertainment. - Guardian
