Publisher Description

An unexpected gift has arrived for Carol Farley this Christmas: an envelope bearing a newspaper clipping and no return address. There, blurred but unmistakable, is a photo of a man missing for years and feared dead—Carol’s father. It is a siren calling her to a world she has never known, to a place of ancient majesty and blood-chilling terror.

Now, surrounded by towering pyramids on Mexico City’s Walk of the Dead, a frightened yet resolute young woman searches for a perilous truth and for the beloved parent she thought was gone forever. But there are dark secrets lurking in the shadows of antiquity, a conspiracy she never imagined, and enemies who are determined that Carol Farley will not leave Mexico alive.

    " There is always considerable drop-off in Peters' other books when one leaves the Peabody series. Vicky Bliss, for instance, does not have the same 'oomph' of the mutli-faceted Amelia. "

    " I have really enjoyed the Amelia Peabody mysteries, so I thought I would give another Elizabeth Peters a shot. Finally finished- did not like as well as the Amelia Peabodys- the main character just wasn't quite at captivating and interesting, nor was the plot. "

    " Elizabeth Peters is always an entertaining read, but I wouldn't classify this book as one of her greater works for all that. It's rather dated (set in 1971), with references to refundable airline tickets and other such oddities. 8-) "

    " A vacation to Mexico ends up with unexpected involvement in a drug ring. Locating a missing father can be more dangerous than she expected. A good mystery with lots of twists. "

    " I am a huge Elizabeth Peters fan and count Amelia Peabody and Vicky Bliss as two favorite protagonists. However, no matter how many times I tried, I just could not get interested in this story. Thank goodness I only paid ten cents for the book at a rummage sale. "

    " My mother gave me this book right after I got back from Mexico City. And I stubbornly waited 10 years (!) to read the book. It was wonderful. What the heck was I thinking? "

    " This story was definitely dated... written in 1971. It was evident in the dialogue and in the way people related to each other. The story itself was okay. It was evident that the characters didn't understand drug addiction, but I guess that's appropriate for the date it was written. "

    " Yes this book was dated and it was not as good as Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels books but I like cheesy 70s gothic novels so I liked this book. It is a typical 70s gothic mystery with a heroine in distress in Mexico City. The drug background is dated. Enjoy "
