    For vibrant, lovely Jean Suttman, the fellowship to study in Rome was the culmination of all her dreams, until she undertook an innocent expedition to the ancient subterranean Temple of Mithra.

    Overall

    Elizabeth Peter's novels that feature Kirby are both entertaining and full of twists. The plots are much easier to follow in an audio book than her somewhat ponderous Egyptian series with Peabody. Kirby adds a quirky humorous anti-heroine slant, taking the endangered young art history student Jean under her protection when she becomes a target for a murderer. Peters makes very believable the group of students who are at once competitors and allies in their desire to get continued funding for their studies in Rome. Ancient art history and those who spend their lives exploring it are both much more accessible in this story. Even my teenage son wanted to listen when I had it on in the car. I rather hated for the book to end, and wish Peters' later novels were more like this one.
