The Hippopotamus Pool (Amelia Peabody, #8) - Elizabeth Peters Again a brilliant story.

Radcliffe is my all time favourite male lead in any story I've ever read. He blunders in like a bull but is really a soft pussycat and when it comes to Ramses, let no-one get in his way. He and Amelia have such a great relationship together, and their affection for Ramses is so well explored, but well hidden from the outside world that you really see how good a writer Elizabeth Peters is.

I think this story, more than ever, shows this. The idea is imaginative and original yet again, and Ramses as always manages to find himself getting into the most ridiculous trouble with very little effort. And it's up to Radcliffe and Amelia to get him out of it again...as usual.
