A good salary and an all-expenses-paid summer spent a sprawling Arizona ranch is too good a deal for fledgling anthropologist D.J. Abbott to turn down. What does it matter that her rich new employer/benefactor, Hank Hunnicutt, is a certified oddball who is presently funding all manner of off-beat projects, from alien conspiracy studies to a hunt for dragon bones? There's even talk of treasure buried in the nearby mountains, but D.J. isn't going to allow loose speculation -- or the considerable charms of handsome professional treasure hunter Jesse Franklin -- to sidetrack her. Until Hunnicutt suffers a mysterious accident and then vanishes, leaving the weirdos gathered at his spread to eye each other with frightened suspicion. But on a high desert search for the missing millionaire, D.J. is learning things that may not be healthy for her to know. For the game someone is playing here goes far beyond the rational universe -- and it could leave D.J. legitimately dead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very enjoyable. This is one of my Grandma's favourite books - she's been mentioning it for years, telling me that everyone she knows from 14 to 98 has loved it - and I figured it was about time to find myself a copy. I've never read anything by Elizabeth Peters before but I'll definitely be reading more because this book was hilarious and very well written. There were a few elements of the story that I didn't love but I just reminded myself that the book was written in the late 70s and nothing was bad enough to hinder my enjoyment of the story; it's actually got a surprisingly modern feel to it for being written almost 40 years ago.
