  • Silhouette in Scarlet: The Third Vicky Bliss Mystery

    Vicky Bliss is a Doctor of Art History who happens to be statuesque and beautiful. But her job at the National Museum in Munich is not enough to keep this intrepid academician entertained. It takes the thrill of an ancient mystery or dangerous romantic adventure to keep Vicky on her toes.

    Overall

    We are now at the middle of the series to date, and this book was a bit of a disappointment. We fall into a pattern, and for some reason this one just got a little slow for me. It?s still a very good story, and I like where it took the characters, but his one just took its toll on me.

    The Charlemagne talisman, with its gold filigree volutes and enormous azure-blue sapphire, has caught Vicky Bliss' attention. When a man is found murdered with an enchanting copy of the antiquity in his pocket, along with an odd set of hieroglyphs, Vicky follows the trail of the gifted genius who created the fake to the narrow streets of the anitquity markets in Rome.

    Michelle says: "Much better than the first Vicky Bliss"
    "Now this is where the series startes to take off"
    Overall

    Here we have the introduction of John?s character, and the beginning of the best part of the series. It is such a great listen to, and one cannot help buy want to travel to Germany afterwards. More Nancy Drew style mysteries that are repeat listens!

    Adventure and romance enter Vicky Bliss' life in the form of a black-and-white photograph of a woman covered from head to toe in gold jewels. This "Trojan Gold" has an intriguing history, but it is the envelope that piques Vicky's curiosity. It is a grimy brown, with no return address, and it appears to have been soaked in blood.

    SnideSide says: "Couldn't Stop Listening"
    "I was SOOOO happy with this book"
    Overall

    Ok I will admit that after the third book I was getting REAL familiar with the formula of the series. I was chalking it up to the fact that I plowed through the whole series in one go, but this one changed my mind. Of course we have the great-established set of characters that we have come to love, but we also have a very different end to the book. It does not clean up neatly, and I must say that I still love John?s ?Marry Poppins? comings and goings.

    Overall

    First off I first got the other edition of this book. I loved the charactors and the story, but with picking up the second book read by Barbara I was much more in love with the series. I HAD to get this reading, and I plead with you to pick up this book. You will love it!!! Very much a good old pulp story with a treasure hunt and all. A Nancy Drew for adults!!!

    "Not his best, but that is still better then most"
    Overall

    Pratchett looked to be running out steam here. It is one of the last of the Rincewind novels, but still a good read.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Alexandra says: "Incredibly entertaining"
    "What more can one say."
    Overall

    Read it, love it. This is a book I got the week it came out, and have read it three times already. It is just a good popcorn read that takes you on a rollercoster ride from start to finish. If you like a bit of fact and history with your mystery then this is it.

    "Where have all the dragons gone?" Explore the crazy, creepy land called Discworld, where you'll discover that the dragons aren't asleep or dead - they're dormant, packed in like huge, scaly sardines.

    Chris says: "More Fun than a Mind Full of Dragons!"
    "And so starts The Watch"
    Overall

    This was at one time my least favorite books of the series, but after listening to it again, it has moved way up the list. Here we start "The Watch Cycle". Where we have most things set in the major city on the Disc, and have the author seams to have the most fun.

    "The most moving of the series"
    Overall

    Even among fan groups of the series where everyone has his or her own favorite characters, but many consider this the best book of the series. The wonderful moving and hilarious story of Death as he takes a holiday is an enchanting story that culminates in a wonderful climax that stays with you long after the book is done. Truly Discworld at is best.
