Product Description

Review

A writer so popular that the public library has to keep her books under lock and key. (Washington Post Book World)

Book Description

The note with the hieroglyphs was found in the pocket of a man lying dead in an alley. The only other item of interest on him was a piece of jewellery, a reproduction of the Charlemagne talisman, but so well done that Vicky Bliss thought she was being shown the real thing. Vicky didn't know what it meant yet.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
One of the (many) things I like in Elizabeth Peters is that you can bet that when she quotes art, history or places she knows what she's writing about. Here she ships off our Vicky Bliss to a Rome that is straight out of "Roman Holidays" to hunt a forger of antique jewellery and as a special treat for us readers has her meet her ultimate partner in love and crime, the adorable Sir John, who reminds me of a sort of Peter Wimsey turned to the shady path. Despite her claim that she's too big and brainy to qualify as a classic heroine, our Vicky does all the right things: gets kidnapped, conquers not only the reluctant hero but assorted counts and rogues as well. To say nothing of the dog... The characters are lovable, the dialogue is funny and the mystery plot is there though if you're looking for blood and a score of dead bodies this is not your book.

I loved this book, and the heroine, and was so looking forward to finishing it. HOWEVER, there was a large chunk missing between the penultimate chapter and the final chapter. So disappointing, and I felt cheated.

Surely Kindle checks the books before sending them out? How did this happen?

I am not a native English speaker but purchase books in English regularly. I like Elizabeth Peter's books very much because of her ability to keep you interested from the first page to the last one. Things happen fast, and everything turns to go as well or as badly as you can imagine within a laugh's time. I prefer the characters of the Amelia Peabody's series, because Vicky Bliss's characters look more like a caricature of themselves and stories are more straightforward, but I still find them really entertaining.

Vicky Bliss is the heroine of one of Elizabeth Peters other mystery series. I once attended a lecture by Elizabeth Peters at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts where she said she would end the Amelia Peabody mysteries with the finding of King Tut's tomb by Howard Carter as that was the end of amateur archaeology in Egypt. Alas that happened in the last Amelia Peabody book, "Tomb Of The Golden Bird". If she still means what she said, then Vicky is the only lively adventurer her dedicated mystery readers have left. While many people do not care much for Vicky or her problems, I personally have always enjoyed them and actually liked modern day Vicky more than serious Amelia. These stories are more light hearted than the other books but still clever and well written. She dashes about and has a great time and I have too while reading about her outings.

Then you'll love this. Elizabeth Peters is an established and respected mystery writer for a very good reason. Worth buying

A bit far fetched. Not really believable story. Liked the Egyptian stories but this hasn't got the charisma of those. For a reputable writer I found her repeated use of the word "gotten" really grated. Dreadfully bad grammar for someone such as Elizabeth Peters.

This is a good introduction to a 'new' mystery series especially if you are an Amelia Peabody fan. Though completely different in everything but artefacts, the characters are lively and likeable and the story progresses at a good pace. Thoroughly enjoyable.

I have read this book before but hadn't owned it. I am a fan of the sadly now late Ms Peters and am slowly collecting all her books. I like the fast paced adventures, the men of mystery and not least, the four legged friends. Expect further orders.
