Overview

Summer of the Dragon by Elizabeth Peters

A good salary and an all-expenses-paid summer spent on a sprawling Arizona ranch is too good a deal for fledgling anthropologist D.J. Abbot to turn down. What does it matter that her rich new employer/benefactor, Hank Hunnicutt, is a certified oddball who is presently funding all manner of off-beat projects, from alien conspiracy studies to a hunt for dragon bones? There's even talk of treasure buried in the nearby mountains, but D.J. isn't going to allow loose speculation—or the considerable charms of handsome professional treasure hunter Jesse Franklin—to sidetrack her. Until Hunnicutt suffers a mysterious accident and then vanishes, leaving the weirdos gathered at his spread to eye each other with frightened suspicion. But on a high desert search for the missing millionaire, D.J. is learning things that may not be healthy for her to know. For the game someone is playing here goes far beyond the rational universe—and it could leave D.J. legitimately dead.

I LOVE ELIZABETH PETERS BOOKS AND THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES. GREAT STORY. EASY READ. GOOD FOR A SUMMER DAY

Originally published in 1979, Summer of the Dragon has aged remarkably well. The mystery is fun, and protagonist DJ is a hoot. I love her running internal monologue, especially her ruthless skewering of crackpot archaeological theories. A great way to spend a rainy afternoon.
