This novel is set in Peru, mainly around Cusco and Machu Picchu, the Incan historical city. The main character, Lily Moore, is a travel writer who is North American, but now lives in Spain. Her sister has died recently and her friend Jesse, photographer, has convinced her to come on this trip with him. At Machu Picchu, they come across a woman who is dying and while Jesse goes for help, Lily tries to keep her conscious and listens to her final words accusing someone of hurting her. The police dismiss the accusations and Lily feels determined to find the truth and make sure someone pays for the woman's death. But as she digs deeper, she not only puts herself in danger, but she also has trouble figuring out who to believe.
With kidnappings, shootings, and mental illness, this book has lots going on and should keep you glued to the page.
The author has a similar background to the character, which is also interesting.
I so enjoyed Hilary Davidson's first book, so that I eagerly anticipated this one. While it is extremely similar to the first book (same characters, style, etc), the magic is missing. The plot exceeds all plausibilty, and I really didn't give two hoots for any of them after a while. Read 'The Damage Done', and I shall try her next novel, but this one...give it a pass.
A great page-turner for armchair travellers. Amazing descriptions with lots of historical information about Machu Picchu and Peru. Numerous twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat. My only complaint: an almost cartoonish villain. I'd also suggest reading the author's first book, "The Damage Done", before this one (I didn't but wish I had).
"After her exciting debut in The Damage Done, it’s good to see that Canadian Hilary Davidson has upped the ante in her second novel. This is a solid cozy with a good, tight plot, and the setting and characterization take it to the next level."
A quick easy read mystery that takes place in Peru. Typical amateur sleuth story.
