5.0 out of 5 stars Vicky Bliss finds her match!, 29 Nov. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Street of the Five Moons (Vicky Bliss Mysteries) (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.
