Review: The Alexandria Affair (Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries #11) by Ashley Gardner

Captain Lacey's next case of amateur sleuthing occurs while he's vacationing in Egypt. At first, it seems this mystery will just be about locating an artifact that James Denis wishes him to procure, but of course it's not really a Captain Lacey tale if there's not a dead body. Throw into the mix the mysterious impostor who wants Lacey dead, and a rouge henchman of Denis' and there's a lot going on in this novel!

While I wouldn't have previously said that the London setting in most of the first ten books was getting stale, this one definitely shakes things up a little bit by showing us a glimpse of what was going on in another part of the world during this time period. It was very refreshing and I'm now kind of hoping Lacey will take other vacations elsewhere in future books (my fingers are always crossed that there will continue to be many more books to come in this series).
