First of the Vicky Bliss series. Not as good as the ones that follow this one, I think, but a must to see where she gets her start.

Mme. Peters' "Amelia Peabody" stories are better known, but i just lover her "Vicky Bliss" stories, about a sassy, beautiful art historial. This is the first Vicky Bliss mystery.

The first in the Vicky Bliss series. Our heroine is an art historian. She discovers information about a missing masterwork in wood created by an artist who died in the sixteenth century. Soon she and an arrogant male colleague are off to Germany on a quest to find it. Along the way they meet several other people on the same quest. While staying in an old schloss she experiences what seems to be an evil spiritual presence. Is it real or just someone's dirty tricks to steal the masterpiece. The story is interesting, written in the first person with a somewhat dated feel which doesn't distract from a good story.

I like Elizabth Peters characters. Vicky Bliss goes on a treasure hunt in a German castle when someone targets her and the game could become deadly.

The only reason I finished this book was because I started it and for no other reason. It looked interesting and I liked the first couple of chapters but it got BORING in the middle. Even the end wasn't worth it. I've read other books by this author and enjoyed them but I can't recommend this one.

Love this series! If you are into learning while being entertained in your mysteries, this is the series for you. Vicky Bliss is smart but not so smart that you can't buy her as real. This is the first in the series and after reading it I gobbled up the rest with glee.
