Praise For…

Praise for Janice Hamrick and Death on Tour

“A classy whodunit, Death on Tour also offers a trove of Egyptology and a wealth of humor -- Christie's characters were never this smart-alecky. Hamrick plays fair with clues, and the alert reader has a fighting chance of identifying the culprit from among the cast of suspects.”
Richmond Times Dispatch

Death on Tour is fun, romantic and delightful, and full of fascinating bits about ancient Egypt.”
Cleveland Plain Dealer

“The cozy mystery was once limited to adorable English villages and the like, but it long ago outgrew its traditional boundaries. Janice Hamrick's Death on Tour is a charming example.”
The Seattle Times

“Hamrick does a good job capturing life on an exhausting budget tour as her snazzy if snarky amateur sleuth… investigates some fishy fellow tourists.”
Publishers Weekly

“Hamrick’s character-driven debut is a good mystery and a charming travelogue.”
Kirkus Reviews

 “Murder, possible smuggling, a colorful array of characters and what could be the start of a romance are vying for top billing with the wonders of Egypt in this funny and expertly plotted debut, introducing high school teacher Jocelyn Shore. Readers can only hope that Hamrick's next installment is as much fun as this one.”
