The Snake, the Crocodile and the Dog by Elizabeth Peters

The Snake, the Crocodile and the Dog  - Elizabeth Peters

Series: Amelia Peabody #7


As I stated in my previous update, it may have been a mistake to jump to the seventh book directly after the first. It’s possible that I would have been more invested in the characters and more lenient with some of the narrative twists and turns that presented themselves. But then again, maybe not.


The shenanigans in this book included an amnesia subplot and a lot of running around Egypt being attacked by a mysterious enemy. The ending was rather ridiculous. I’m not sure if I’ll be wanting to revisit Peabody’s world or not in the future. The master criminal angle was a bit much.


The cat, Anubis, was the highlight of the book.
