Elizabeth Peters blend lots of humour, a questionable romance and history into a stumbling caper that I couldn't wait to finish. I'm not always a fan of first-person narratives, but Vicky Bliss's straight forward, yet sarcastic personality really carries this series. In the third installment, Vicky travels to Stockholm on a supposed vacation, where she soon learns that John Smythe, her occasional beau and an art-thief, has less than honourable intentions for their visit.
As I previously mentioned, this is a part of a series, but the Silhouette in Scarlet could definitely be read out of order. However, I would definitely recommend starting with the second book which is entitled the Street of the Five Moons. Fortunately, this book is spoiler free!
