First Line: "I saw it all," the American woman was saying.

When a member of the staff at a Turkish excavation is murdered and a mosaic floor disappears from her site, archaeologist Tamar Saticoy plunges into a world of the antiquities trade in the quest to discover who is responsible for the theft of important artifacts. There are so many archeological terms and Greek words, it is hard to follow and loses interest. Boring

There wasn't enough of the sympathetic female character and way to much of the rotten male. There was a lot of local current background but not much about the history of the archeology that is the basis for the story. What was mentioned was things about gods and go ...more
