  • Nice winter reread

    An oldie but the beginner of a fine series (the others keep getting better). Introducing Gideon Oliver, a professor with a tendency to talk over everyone's head but knows his stuff and gets the job done. This story is more of a "deadly spies who are buffoons" than a murder mystery and is set in Europe rather than the Pacific northwest, but the characters are interesting and so is the plot. Besides, it was on sale! Joel Richards is convincing as the narrator.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Good character

    I enjoyed this book. I thought I read all of the Gideon Oliver books but found one I hadn't read yet. He's a brilliant scholar who innocently gets involved in mayhem. The books don't have excessive violence. I recommend reading the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Perfect.

    Outstanding, as are all 4 of Elkins' books i have read to date. however, i discovered that the 1st and 4th books had some pages where it was almost iimossible to read the text. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fellowship of Fear - Gideon Oliver Mysteries 1

    This was a really good story - suited me to a T. I look forward to reading more about Gideon and his partner in sleuthing, John, in the next books in the series. The author's style is easy - good use of language, enough anthropology threads scattered about in the story line, a very decent surprise towards the end, appealing characters, a retro setting (at least by 2021 its retro), an appealing European travelogue, some action-packed moments but nothing horribly graphic. Just fun to read.

    Thanks for your feedback!
