    It began as a game, a treasure hunt in an old German castle. For Vicky Bliss, tall, beautiful, and brilliant, it is also a challenge, a chance to bring an arrogant young man down a notch or two. And all things considered, it would have been no contest.

    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.

    Much better than the first Vicky Bliss

    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.

    Not the best of the set

    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..Show More »

    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.

    The setting is a German museum, where our sleuth gets a photo of an ancient treasure in the mail. The envelope is tinged with blood and on closer ins..Show More »

    Much-adored historical mystery writer Elizabeth Peters immerses her fetching heroine Vicky Bliss into an indubitably beguiling situation - this time in the antiquated realm of the laughing dead kings. A spectacular performance by narrator Barbara Rosenblat - Petersโ€™ personal favorite - complements this delightful mystery.

    Solidly entertaining and Sneakily fabulous

    the surprise introduction of the author herself as a cameo part. Brilliant!
