The Magyar Venus (Archaeological Mysteries, No. 8)

The Magyar Venus - Lyn Hamilton The storyline is thin and the plot twists are a bit cliché. But the archaeological plot twists and points are still what make the novels in Hamilton's series worth reading. In this one, Lara connects with old college friends who have much to hide and much to lose. The mystery is centred around the find of a prehistoric ivory sculpture of a Earth Venus in an Hungarian cave in 1900. All of the mystery plot hinges on one thing and one thing only. It works or not. For me it worked until about midway through the book. The character development is practically null which is too bad.
