This was a well written book with okay characters. I usually do not read science fiction, but this book caught my eye. The year is 2089 and a man who has much power, Lucifer is his name was murdered and Logan a former skin runner who turned into a star reporter investigates and finds a huge mix of politics,intrigue and religion which is drawn out over 75 years.Even though he was an evil man Lucifer did not deserve to be murdered, there was a lot of history in this book. The society was supposed to have banished hatred and segregation, but not for all those in high places who used it it to their advantage. Although this is not my normal genre I do recommend it to all those who would like to glance at the future. Thank you Net Galley and IBPA.

Elizabeth Peters spins a fantastic yarn through Egypt on a boat and on land.Along on this journey is Dr. Vicky Bliss an official of the National Museum in Munich, her boss Director Doctor Schmidt and Sir John who was Vicky's boyfriend but he is now married. Vicky is convinced to go undercover on a cruise yo Egypt to prevent and identify a thief. Once convinced on the boat Vicky see's Sir John and his bride, bit Vicky is John's ex love and knows he is a bit of a thief. It seems all things go awry and there is mass confusion when the ship sails. The storyline consists of humor,terrorism,theft,some fun and some romance. My favorite character is Schmidt he was very endearing and smarter than people thought. I plan to read more of the Vicky Bliss books. Bravo Ms Peters Thanks to Net Galley and Grand Central Publishing
