The Etruscan Chimera finalby Lyn Hamilton

In Rome, a reclusive billionaire businessman asks antiques dealer Lara McClintoch to find a rare Etruscan artifact for his collection. Lara likes the idea of visiting the beautiful hill towns of Tuscany on an expense account. But when strange men start following her, an eccentric collector dies suddenly, and a strange package turns up in her car, Lara feels evil closing in on her. From Paris to Rome, from Nice to Volterra, from Arezzo to Cortona, Lara is on the move to unravel the conspiracy of the mythical chimera, a monstrous creature that is part lion, part goat and part snake.

Praise for The Etruscan Chimera:

“Erudite and entertaining…..a journey that is every bit as magical as the elusive chimera.”

Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review. 

“Canadian Hamilton serves up her usual appealing mix of objets d’art and murder in her sixth well-researched mystery to feature antiques dealer Lara McClintoch…..Erudite mystery fams will enjoy the sophisticated wit.”

Publishers Weekly

“The Etruscan Chimera is a really marvelous read…a vividly exciting and colossally absorbing first-rate read that should not be missed. And I cannot urge everyone enough to give this mystery novel a go.”

Sheila Nathan, I Love a Mystery Newsletter.

“Lyn Hamilton is a very creative and colorful writer who always manages to bring the past to life in her archeological mysteries. Her latest work, THE ETRUSCAN CHIMERA is a conspiracy buff’s delight. The supporting cast have schemes within plots that Lara innocently and unwillingly participates in. This is one mystery that will take a genius to solve.”

Harriet Klausner, The Best Reviews
