The Torch of Tangier
QUOTES FROM REVIEWS OF The Torch of Tangier
"Set in 1942, Baron’s fast-paced second mystery/thriller featuring Lily Sampson (after 2002’s A Fly Has A Hundred Eyes) finds the attractive archaeologist working in Morocco…but the issues she raises about Western versus Islamic cultural values couldn’t be more timely."
"... Those who like their thrillers steeped in exotic locales will find intriguing political and cultural conflict aplenty, as Lily becomes the linchpin for a vital Allied operation."
--Stephanie Zvinin; Booklist; American Library Association
"Intrigue and danger erupt in Tangiers’s narrow streets as Lily is pulled into an OSS operation and people around her begin to die. Baron wrote her first novel about Lily Sampson (A Fly Has a Hundred Eyes) when she was 76 years old. She returns here with a story that is just as riveting and suspenseful."
"... a wonderful bit of fast-paced escapist reading, with some virtual travel to a vividly depicted different place and time and a story which kept twisting and turning until the last – literal on my part – gasp."
--Kim Malo, Myshelf.com
"Here’s looking at you, kid, and here’s hoping that Aileen G. Baron continues with Lily Sampson’s adventures."
--William J. H. Reed, I Love a Mystery
