Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Scotland is the destination in Hunter’s delightfully deadly eighth Passport to Peril mystery (after 2012’s Dutch Me Deadly). Emily Andrew Miceli, in her role as “glorified chaperone” for a tour group of Iowa seniors, divides the group into five geocaching teams, who are all determined to come out on top. That one team consists of three widows and one eligible male adds to the competitive fun. When Isobel Kronk swipes what she believes to be the cache at one stop, the item turns out to be an ancient dagger with a curse that apparently strikes Isobel dead in her kitty pajamas. Emily removes the dagger for safekeeping, but it disappears only to be discovered with the next victim. Emily and friends will have to do some fancy footwork if they hope to catch a clever killer in this appealing cozy. Agent: Irene Goodman, Irene Goodman Literary. (Feb.)
Library Journal
Travel group leader Emily braves the wilds of Scotland with her senior clients. Laugh along with Hunter's eighth (after Dutch Me Deadly) pun-laden expedition.
Kirkus Reviews
A bus tour of Scotland awakens ancient clan hatreds. Emily Andrew Miceli and her husband, a retired chief inspector, own a travel agency and are regular tour leaders for a group of mostly senior citizens from Iowa. Now that they've found the joys of smartphones, the seniors are sometimes too busy texting to look up and enjoy the scenery. To attract more business, they're providing a free trip to the person who wins a geocaching contest, an updated scavenger hunt using cellphone GPS and websites to find hidden objects. The group is divided into teams whose bickering reflects ongoing antipathies. One member, Isobel Kronk, goes so far as to remove the sought object, which turns out to be the ancient Maccoull dagger, an artifact with a dark history. The very next morning she is found dead in bed. The cause is unknown, but her end doesn't look peaceful. The hotel owner and several tour members with Scottish blood are sure the Maccoull curse has killed her, but the police are eager to find a living suspect. The tour is allowed to proceed even though the cause of death is still unknown. The next death causes the police to retain Emily's Nana, who's been handing out herbal medicine foisted on her by Emily's mom. The seniors, invigorated by their sleuthing during their last trip in Holland (Dutch Me Deadly, 2012), are ready for their next mystery. Hotels out of Fawlty Towers, haggis and boat accidents on Loch Ness all threaten to distract Emily as she attempts to unmask a ruthless killer. Bits of Scottish history enliven the mildly amusing mystery.

    The plucky seniors are back again and this time they are traveli

    The plucky seniors are back again and this time they are traveling in Scotland. And as we all know, murder will be afoot and Emily and her seniors will rise to the occasion with their usual idiosyncrasies that had me laughing out loud at antics. Another great read and I can’t wait to see where our next trip will be.
