The Jackal's Head

The Jackal's Head - Elizabeth Peters Not awful, but a far cry from Peters' Amelia Peabody series, both in the quality of writing and the quality of plotting.

The plot was predictable here and the romance not convincing; still, it had its share of excitement towards the end and some of the descriptions of the Valley of the Kings in moonlight were lovely, which made me round up the 2.5 stars I'd have wanted to give this otherwise.
