2014 book 171

Carola Dunn's Rattle His Bones
This is a fairly exciting outing in the Daisy Dalrymple series, involving a gemstone theft and a murder at a natural history museum (so much antiquated talk about dinosaur fossils!). I will say that I was really put off by the narrative referring to Jews as "Hebrews"--it's not clear that it's a /character/ referring to them that way (which would be historically accurate, if still offensive) or the author (in which case it's just offensive). I mean, that's not relevant to the story, it just made me angry. Anyway. B.
