I enjoyed the book. The pacing was good, the main character was flawed (which is good to see in an action thriller - no superhero), the puzzle was interesting and done well. I would maybe read the author again or read the next book in the series.
It did not have all the suspense I was looking for.
It made me wish I knew a little more about Greek mythology, but not enough that I will look for a book on the subject.
I was surprised to see a reference book Brothers In Arms: The Epic Story of the 761st Tank Battalion, WWII's Forgotten Heros, [a Black Tank Battalion] by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
A decent first book... how can you go wrong, based off the cover; a swastika overlaying a Mycenaean death mask.
The book flowed alright, and the story was interesting enough. I guess it was just missing a little something... a little extra that could have made it really great. It didn't have some of the finishing power of some of the other books in its historical fiction/action-adventure genre.
Unlikely thriller with the dumbest heroine in recent memory. A museum curator attempts to solve the murder of her mentor, which involved either the greatest treasure of the ancient world, or a clever forgery. Or maybe something else entirely.
