Description

In skillfully intertwined story lines from the dawn of the 20th century and the heyday of the Roman Empire, Tasha Alexander's In the Shadow of Vesuvius, the latest installment to her best-selling series, brings Lady Emily and her husband to Pompeii, where they uncover a recent crime in the ancient city.

Some corpses lie undisturbed longer than others. But when Emily discovers a body hidden in plain sight amongst the ruins of Pompeii, she sets in motion a deadly chain of events that ties her future to the fate of a woman whose story had been lost for nearly 2,000 years.

Emily and her husband, Colin Hargreaves, have accompanied her dear friend Ivy Brandon on a trip to Pompeii. When they uncover a corpse and the police dismiss the murder as the work of local gangsters, Emily launches an investigation of her own. She seems to be aided by the archaeologists excavating the ruins, including a moody painter, the enigmatic site director, and a free-thinking American capable of sparring with even the Duke of Bainbridge. But each of them has secrets hiding among the ruins.

The sudden appearance of a beautiful young woman who claims a shocking relationship to the Hargreaves family throws Emily’s investigation off-course. And as she struggles to face an unsettling truth about Colin’s past, it becomes clear that someone else wants her off the case - for good. Emily’s resolve to unearth the facts is unshakable. But how far below the surface can she dig before she risks burying herself along with the truth?

Not my favorite

I have to say I’ve been reading this series for a long time and I really struggled to get through this one. The side storyline was annoying and for the way it connected later it seemed like a giant waste of time and I had no sympathy for the character by the end. I was just so annoyed with the whole thing. The new character also annoyed the crap out of me and colons interactions with them was so completely out of character. All in all I’d say skip this one and just get the summary in the beginning of the next book.

Too Long

Blanco Amato was fabulous,as usual. But the story seemed stretched out . It was okay, but not my favorite of A!exander's. Still I've her writing, though!
